Installing pressure gage
So I've had my system installed for almost 4 years now and still haven't installed my WVO pressure gage. I do have a 2 slot gage rack that I put the level sensing gage on and bought a pressure gage to install. the only thing I really don't know is getting the plumbing run smoothly without it getting pinched in the door trim and leaking WVO everywhere. what have you guys done? could anyone post pics of their setup so I can get some ideas to get this finished up? thanks all.

Living dangerously. DON'T use that one. Get an electronic sender and gauge. Replace your Schrader valve on your V3-V4 manifold and use the spare wire on your harness for the sender. It's already wired in your harness to your timer card. All you would need is a good ground and a power tap from your fuse block.

You really don't want oil or D2 leaking anywhere in your cab!

Plus the mechanical gauges never last more than one year before becoming stuck reading wrong. I have tried with different ways of plumbing only to fail. Get electric gauge only 0 to 30 psi for Dodge. ISSPRO or Autometer.

pressure sensor
ya i know ive been living dangerously. I basically have just learned when the filter is clogged ~3000 miles and change it. been like this for over 4 years lol. if you guys have never experienced an end of life filter when pressure drops its the worst. the V4 system does this weird thing where the WVO pressure drops just to the point where its barely to low and the brain freaks out and instead of just going "low pressure" it runs both D2 and WVO pumps at the same time. since the WVO pressure is barely lower than D2, the D2 overcomes WVO and pushes it backwards, thus filling up WVO tank and shooting D2/WVO everywhere. it was the greatest.

The common rail conversion has never been a prefect one.
