How To Prepare for Gauges

Gauge Installation

- Preparation Guide -






BOOST GAUGE INFO



Boost gauges are available in many sizes. 0‑35 psi is widely used but with where things are going in the CTD world you'll be pegging it and not sure how much boost is actually being generated. I think a 0‑50 psi is sufficient but will use a 0‑60 psi gauge just in case.



Boost install kit comes with the boost gauge


Many drill and tap the air horn for hook up to motor. Piers Diesel Research, Inc. offers a BOOST BOLT




All you do is remove a bolt from the top of the engine and put the BOOST BOLT in the same hole. The boost bolt is already tapped for the boost gauge hose.





FUEL PRESSURE



ISOLATOR


After the purchase of the gauge usually 0‑30 PSI you have to purchase other parts to complete installation.

Enterprise Engine Performance (EEP)



The EEP Isolator is pre‑primed with antifreeze for the connection between the isolator and the gauge. The Isolator is mounted under the hood with the antifreeze filled line ran through the fire wall into the cab and to the gauge.

The connection from the isolator to the motor is highly debatable. On certain model years there are ports on top of the fuel filter for the connection.

For the years that donít have the ported fuel filter cap, Geno's Garage has an after market billet fuel filter cap that is tapped for the FP gauge hose hook up.




Fuel Pressure (Cont.)

I chose to connect into the Schrader valve on my Vp44; itís like a tire valve stem with the needle inside. This is also known as a test port.



Geno's Garage has a special GG like hose that'll push the needle in when you tighten the hose down so removal of the needle is not necessary. There are more options for taping the motor for FP Gauge hook up.



Many use a standard Grease gun hose for the connection but this requires the removal of the needle inside the test port.

Outline

PYRO








When you purchase the gauge youíll get a thermocouple and thermocouple lead wire.

Additional tools are requires for install.











This is the Inconel

type "K" Thermo couple



The Drill bit is 11/32, the tap is a 1/8 N.P.T. (it is tapered, a normal tap wont work)

The manifold is not hard metal, so drilling is easy. Installation of the Thermo Couple is also highly debated, some remove the turbo before drilling (only 4 bolts but may require replacement or manifold gasket).

Others (ME) just put a dab of grease on the drill bit to catch the shavings. A small magnet tool can also be used to get any small pieces out of the manifold.

NOTE :

Turbo damage may result if metal shavings are left in manifold






Here is the EGT Gauge Thermo Couple lead wire

that connects to the gauge.





Complete Install Info

Here is a installation kit for gauge systems available at Genoís and DPP





Other recommended tools



For all Fuel line piping connections
