Well I have had a ongoing stutter issue with my truck, felt like it was sucking air at times,Replaced all fuel lines etc,ran ovehead, Pretty much everything. This has been going on since I had it rebuilt last Feb. Anyway after it bugging the crap out of me and trying to figgure just what was happening. I set out yesterday to find the problem,Well I won!! Yay!! I checked fuel pressure this morning had 12 lbs at idle and 30 at 1800 rpm sposed to have 75 anyway the Old pump had, I know 1 million miles and maby more. I had never changed it and I bought the truck with a mil 263 on it, and I have put a mil on it myself. Anyway I went and got a new pump, put it on and checked pressure had 30 at idle and 35 at 1800 rpm, WTF I said to myself. So I went farther into it, I pulled the fittings on the back of the head and Viola!! there was NO restrictor fitting,they had just put a brass nipple in to connect to. So another trip the the Detroit joint and now I have 80psi at 1800rpm Truck runs a hell of a lot better and hopefully tomorrow I can get a load and go put it to the test. I bet my milage comes up somenow also. Pat Myself on the back and having a few beers tonight!! Yeah Baby!!!!

A fuel pressure gauge is a pretty handy gauge to have on the dash. I run a 96' Western Star that I bought new and shortly after the purchase I bought a WS 100 psi mechanical oil gauge to match the rest of them, cut a 2" hole in the panel and popped her in. It has held up well over the years to the wide fluctuation of pressures. It's nice to monitor the fuel filters for clogging or icing. Or the rare occasion you have a starting issue, you can eliminate fuel pressure to the head and diagnose other performance issues while going down the road . I know what you a talking about with the fitting, I experimented with different sizes a few years back! Settled on the one Detroit drilled out years ago. Bet you'll be happy with it now!
