Mine on my ford did the same thing and it drove me nuts to because it would flutter because it was filling the injectors.

get that piece mopar man said.

or the autometer or isspro snubber.

Ask in the vendor forum for a isspro snubber

I have the ISSPRO mechanical gauges, and I don't have any problem with them.

Is it a new gauge? If so, I'd just contact the vendor you got them from and tell them the problem, and say you want a new one.

Are you running the fuel line directly to the gauge? While we don't generally recommend running fuel into the cab, as Mopar1973Man mentioned, you can add a needle valve in line with the gauge to damp out the pulses of your VP-44. You can tighten the needle valve down to act as an adjustable snubber. ISSPRO carries a needle valve with 1/8" NPT female threads on both ends, R7742.

Nate,
What problems are you having with your gauges? What model are they?

My FP gauge goes up, down, and all around...and my pyro comes and goes, it'll work fine then all of the sudden die, I had these installed at a performance shop by a very respectable guy and when I called City Diesel we couldnt find anything that was hooked up wrong or a glitch in the installation...the only one worth a darn is my boost...

they are black and white face:

I ran fuel into the cab on my last truck!

and Yes the mechanical gauge will rattle with out a needle, isolator or snubber.

It picks up all the vibrations of the motor and fuel system!

Let me build a video of this and the vibration and the crazy actions mine can do... If I open the needle valve I can nearly tip 20-22 PSI at start up in a quick flash... But with the needle valve set right its a nice smooth slow needle rise.
