If you are going to mount the gauge in the cab make sure you use a electric gauge and not a mechanical. The electric unit from Autometer is like 195$.

Go with an electric gauge, if you go to ITP's site Dennis has a part that adapts the fitting on the fuel bowl to the 1/4 npt fitting on the sender. I just went down to a parts store for mine and pulled the plug out and walked in...

Sender goes there...
