    RRFPR Gauge

    Hey guys. My guage liquid now has a yellowish tint to it. I think that the fuel is leaking into the liquid filled part of it if thats possible. I was looking to get a new one because of the tinted color.

    Is this a decent gauge? Im assuming we need a liquid filled one. Their aeromotive gauges are not liquid filled. I have a aeromotive rrfpr.

    You can try and change the oil in the gauge first. Pretty sure Summit has the oil for gauge.

    Thats a good call. But for $20 I think I might just replace it. If they have the fluid and it doesnt work, then I got shipping and another order to place all over. Just wondering if thats a decent one?

    Any one of the 1.5's liquid filled will work...I had mine go out 2 years ago, got a new one through summit...Screwed right in. They all have the same standard 1/8-27 fittings...

    Having the same issues with the Riva RRFPR gauges, first one the whole face blew out and spewed fuel every where. The second one (Riva sent for replacement) has the same yellowish tint to it and is hard to read. I think I'll try to order one as well..

    Wow. That would suck to have it blow open. Ive had whatever brand my gauge is for 2 years no probs. I noticed it this year when I got it ready for summer. Its whatever gauge came with the turbosmart rrfprs.

    But for $20 just replace it. Aint worth messing with.

    The one you posted the link to is a nice gauge but wont work for the Riva setup due to my mounting location (couldn't see it). The gauge shown mounts from the back and the Riva RRFPR was setup originally for the bottom mount gauge. I have all new Autometer gauges that I will soon be installing in the mirrors and one of the JLewis' gauge pods. But for twenty bucks it would be nice to have for right now.

    Gotcha. I just have a 90 elbow coming out the side of my rrfpr which points it up so I can see it with the seat slightly pulled back
