Well actually this is a re-install. Originally I bougt a transducer from AeroForce to use my Intercepter gauge to read the pressure. It was relatively expensive and broke within a few weeks. It was also the first time AeroForce's gauge was setup to be used to read LP. I hunted for a cheap fix and nothing looked promising. This year I searched some more and found TCI now makes a 0-300 psi gauge used to measure LP. I already had the Miller test adaptor installed and simply connected the gauge line to the adaptor. Next was finding a place I could mount the 2-5/8" gauge. Finally made my own mount and used the hold down screw on top of my shifter to secure the gauge cup. I think this will work out good.

I don't think I have a picture. It's a miller test tool. I have it buried in my stash. I'll see if I can dig it out. Actually I think I still have the entire setup. Can't use it on my 46RH.

Good news and bad news. I found the gage, cup and braided line. Just couldn't find the adapter tool. I'll keep looking, can't be far. Good news is I found another stash of AN fittings and was able to finish plumbing the fuel supply.
