Good day. Have a 6-71 inline powering 60kw genset showing 25-28 psi fuel pressure while running @1200rpm even after replacing both primary and secondary filters. replaced fuel pump. No restrictions in fuel supply, replaced PSI gauge. Her sister 1200 rpm genset running 50-60 psi. Appreciate any input.

Thank you.

-also want to mention, starts fine, runs fine.... I'm just not comfortable with seeing 28 psi for fuel pressure because we typically change filters when below 40 psi on our other detroits.
