    I have a question I want to get some confirmation on. I have a Matco gauge that has two different threaded adapters, one is longer than the other. I get higher numbers with the shorter one. I believe the longer one bottoms out before it is able to make a good seal. Any comments?

    Use the one that has the closest thread length as your spark plug.

    97---- a neat trick is to get the nylon schrader valves and replace the stock rubber ones, you would be suprised the difference a GOOD valve will do on a cheaper gauge we tested them and determine the difference, I use the Snap on, but I have owned it since the 70's...man have I been around that long?????
