Re: fuel pressure gauge idea?

Still have a fwe questions about the installation of the Inglese fuel pressue gauge pictured above.

Does anyone know exactly where the fuel passages are located within the bypass plate? I guess what I need to know is, is it a simple case of drilling and tapping as hole in the center of the plate for the gauge? I can't tell if the predrilled passages pass under the center.. I'd hate to waste a plate trying to figure this out....

Any help apprecited..

It must be otherwise the gauge wouldn't be centered..

Look at your old piece and see where they would intersect..

He says he is using a electric pump . I think his stock pump is gutted with maybe a rubber lines connecting the gage to the fittings Just my thought.

I think he tapped into the fuel channel in a by-pass plate and attached the gauge to it,I have been thinking of doing this to all my 100's of pumps sitting around.

How can someone who is so concerned with remaining stock looking....use something so out of place?



But then you and I reverse the lines and run the cheapo super low pressure pumps in the engine compartment...
