Default Connecting fuel pressure gauge

A few weeks ago I purchased an Autometer fuel pressure gauge (model 4963.) But I want to know what is the best way to connect it to a stock L67 fuel rail? I want to do this right with out having to worry about leaks. I should add that the electronic sending unit included with the gauge has threads that measure 1/8" 27 NPT along with some brass adapter which I'm unsure about the size of those threads.


Aside from this gauge providing critical info it just looks cool so Iím itching to install it.

Thanks!

Ed

I know I'm not the only one on this board with a aftermarket fuel pressure gauge.

Let'* see your sender. Put a dime next to it for scale.

If I bought that T what do the threads on there measure? Or what type of connection would be used to hook to an AN line?

What i've found is that the sender is NPT so there is absolutely no way around installing one of these without using atleast one NPT fitting. Im running the speed inc T as well. I haven't researched it at all but i was kind of tossing the idea around of somehow getting the NPT sender and the NPT to flare fitting adapter brazed together or something.
