    Gauge install pictures and a question...

    I spent the entire day wiring these bad boys up...amazingly, everything works...electrically speaking.

    The Fuel Pressure Gauge is Mechanical, so it has a steel braided line running into the back of the gauge. The problem is that it's not working...am I supposed to put some type of fluid into the gauge end of the line or is fuel supposed to go all the way to the gauge?

    Mechanical fuel pressure gauges are not supposed to be mounted inside of the vehicle.

    i was just about to say its not safe to run a mechanical fuel pressure gauge inside where you drive, you wont pass tech inspections at a sanctioned drag strip, just make sure everyone that rides with you is a nonsmoker
