Fuel pressure gauge install on an 04f350

Here is my fuel pressure gauge install. Fittings needed are 1.5metric to 1/8" npt, 1/8" 90 degree street, and teflon tape. Its is a tight fit and takes patience as you cannot put a socket of fittings due to pressure regulator in the way and limited space. Wired gauge with add-a-fuse links to 2 10 amp fuse terminals/ and 5 amp fuses for the gauge(2 fuses will be intalled in the add-a-fuse). wire to horn fuse#37 i believe for your 12v ignition, and wire to body security/4x4 module #19, and ground it to a 5/16" bolt that holds the fuse panel on the metal frame.

lol harbor freight is less

the only issue u may have is the sender being subjected to heat and vibration

some use a short braided line to isolate the sender

The sender usually isn't the problem with vibration, depending on type, usually it is the gauge. Think of all the other senders on the engine.
