    fuel pressure gauge

    Is anyone running a fuel pressure gauge on their multi-fuel? I am trying to figure out what pressure range to use. TM 9-2910-226-34 seems pretty clear at first 3 to 5 psi between the tank and the IP gear pump, then 60 to 80 psi between the IP gear pump and the hyd. head. Then the TM gets real...
