Griff, I didn't forget about the gauge swap. Looks like it might be a winter project for us.
I'm actually getting a pair from Sick Stinger. You can still have mine. I have no use for them and they haven't been hooked up since about 1999, so I'm not sure if they work. If you've got some senders for the 60psi ones, that would be great.

Great! I'll head to the shop this week and try to dig up the senders.

No, keeping the boat together this winter. Building engines to put back in my Panther and get that ready to sell this spring, also fixing up my cruiser to sell and going to start on a couple of car projects that have been on hold for too many years.
Definitely need to meet up this summer. I'm out every weekend on one of my boats, usually go out of GH,

Griff, when you get the gauges installed. Let me know how the senders work. I'm going MPFI and will need to get senders for my EFI fuel gauges.
Thanks

Going to be more difficult than I thought to connect the senders. The schrader valve on the fuel rail is too close to the upper manifold for them to connect directly to the rail. I will have to find some sort of extension/adapter. I tried to test them but probably wasn't getting a good enough ground to get them to work.
