    Boost gauge liquid.

    Most of mine has leaked all over my truck and ski because I guess I didn't tighten the bleed good. Autometer does not have any. 350 cs liquid silicone. Anything else I can use?

    for now you can just tighten it

    the liquid just keeps the guage from bouncing around as much ...they amke it able to come out because some dont want it ...

    Hum,
    I don't think that is supposed to come out, your filler screw is on top.

    Here is a link to some industrial gages that I have used in extremely harsh environments at work. These guys have a gage for everything and can take the abuse. I found a 2" OD, all SS, liquid filled, center back mount, vacuum type for $60.00. The only issue was that the delivery is 2-3 weeks. I hope to have some test results on how these work on a ski in a few weeks.

    Yes it is suppose to come out since you can put a light bulb in the gauge but I remember it being tight and I cant figure out what happened yet. I think Im going to go get some glycerin and then tape good or put a small brace in the rear of it.

    Pressure build-up inside the gauge can make it pop-out weather and heat will build pressure its best to burp the gauge when the weather is hot. Or it can pop-out due to a leaking Bordon tube.
