i have recently installed a auto meter boost and pyro. eversince install i have been fighting a vibration in the boost gauge , i cant find a leak ,changed the gauge and thats not it either. this vibration of the needle onley accures between 25psi and 45psi . im at a total loss , maybe im looking for leaks in the wrong spot? maybe this is common for this set up . i dont know, bot i ssure wish i knew what direction to go in , any help would be good thanks.:thumbsup

I agree

Ditch those and get some isspros or DiProcols. I had autometers in my gas truck and put isspros in my Cummins last night and the difference is night and day and I hear DiProcols are even better.

All you need is a snubber. Some guages do it, some don't. I put one on mine and fixed it right up. DieselManor - Accessories It's the one called a Pressure Gauge Stabilizer.

You can do what you want, but my Autometers have served me well for 2 years now.

Oh man, now ur makin me have to think :lol3:
I think I just took my line loose from the boost bolt, screwed the snubber into the boost bolt and then installed the line into the snubber. I would have to look to make sure, but I think that's how it goes.
I'll go out and look after bit to make sure. Let us know if that fixes the problem :thumbsup.

and how do you attach the boost line direct to the snubber there is no way to compress,or fit?

I guess I was just trying to simplify it,

1)Take your comp. fitting adapter out of the boost bolt.
2)Screw the snubber into the boost bolt.
3)Screw comp. fitting adapter into snubber.
4)Install line back into comp. fitting adapter.

Give me a minute
