My FP gauge died so I called and had a new one sent. They said the problem was that I didnt have a "resistor" or something along that line, and thats what killed the gauge. Well I already had what looked like what they sent on the gauge only the hole on the bolt was bigger. Well I took the old off and put the new one on and it wouldnt fit, so now I have the line - new "resistor" thing - the new one- to the gauge. before I had 15psi now i have 10-12. Do you think it may be like a water hose and w/ the added piece doesnt have a strong read? My LP sounds fine, and the truck runs strong! I am getting my FASS asap while I am on break, but I was wondering in the mean time.

I would consider the valve idea...

Then re-check the fuel pressure and be sure its above 10 PSI...

Current hook up... Vulcan Big line Kit... In the line between VP44 and filter.



And my previous hook up on stock banjo bolts... (Under the fuel filter)

I think they mean RESTRICTOR to help control the pulsing that can damage the gauge and or the sending unit if you have one.
