    Aftermarket gauge install

    Installed fuel and water pressure gauges the other day. Took a little figurung out and some time but not too bad.

    Ordered the gauges from Jegs. SS housing and liquid filled. Too small to fit in the fuel valve or oil fill location so I had to improvise. Purchased 2 PVC flush bushings and cut and filed till the fit. Gauges fit perfect/tight on the inside not requiring any attachmet there. Epoxied one side to the cowl and the other side to the hull itself due to the larger opening on the oil fill side. The bushings were also cut at different depths to keep the hieghts of the gauges semetrical.
