was but i put the O-ring on from the plug and it stopped that... the adapters was too small and let it leak.. put the other o-ring on it stopped it...

Click the image to open in full size.

apparently thats supposed to be a normal reading...and was getting it for a bit... but after i stopped at a store i started getting this as a constant reading...

stayed there the whole way home... not sure if the sensors bad, the wire harness shorted... dont think its the gauge... unsure of the fuel pump...

Fuel pressure usually moves, especially under wot. Might be the fitting.

Do you have the blue spring upgrade?

,and yes. 45psi is the minimum. I wonder if its an install/fitting issue. Maybe one of those o-rings gave out?

yup got the blue spring... was one of the first mods i did...

only one O-ring for the fitting... and had to use the adapter... threads werent the same.. Sensors threads are fine... where the plugs coarse threads..

Did have to use the original oring from the plug... the one that came on the adapter was too small... as soon as the pressure built it leaked..

Looks like you will need to call and see if they can send you the correct fitting. I think its not ready right because its probably bleeding pressure.

If you have a voltage tester you can check it before and after to see if there is voltage drop. Its possible its ground shorting though.

You could run a new wire outside the cab into the gauge just to check it. That way you dont have to deal with fishing it through the firewall.

Do a quick wire test then call them. They will take care of it. I'm off to bed. Later.
