Gentlemen:

Over the years I've been around here, one of the tools for which there is an almost constant need is a fuel pressure tester. What I offer today is my interpretation on the fuel pressure gauge for a Land Rover!

First off, a picture of all the pats needed:


First we start with the gauge and put just enough pipe dope on it to ensure it won't leak, but not enough the Thom gets all upset.


Now we screw the gauge into the tee:


Let's screw the nipple into the tee. Again, just enough pipe dope to seal it:


Lastly, we screw the Shrader valve adapter into the tee:


Depressurize the fuel system, remove the Shrader valve adapter, thread your newly assembled pressure gauge in and away we go!

Thanx Timmy.

Chris:
One of the reason I use the blingin' Stainless Steel gauges is the fact that they can be left in place. When I was using less expensive brass gauges, they'd start losing their zero in weeks and i a few months, they were worthless. So far, I've run a stainless gauge on my Disco for going on three years with no zero migration.

Stay tuned, I'm on a roll and I hired a CAD design engineer to work with me on developing tools and some of the ideas I've been working on for a coupla years.
