All Pics have been removed by Preludedude Sorry,

There is no adapter for 1/8" NPT female TO 1/4" BSPT male..

IT HAS TO BE TAPPED...

This what I purchased today...

Northern Tool store:  1/4"-18 NPT tap...cost $8



The fitting come from Hydradyne..its a store with fittings for hydraulics/etc...Cost only a dollar or two...I is a 1/4" NPT male TO 1/8" NPT female...My 1/8"npt elbow fits right into it...



Now I need to remove the fuel tophat and tap it...Ill post back in a few days with pictures when its all said and done...

Hydraulic hose stores usually have the unusual sizes we need.

BSPT Adapter so you dont have to tap the hole.

1/4 BSPT to Female 1/8 NPT maybe they have it.

BSPT is tapered

BSPP is straight

with most gauge threads they seem to be tapered NPT

make sure to check the threads on your gauge thread pitch before ordering your adapter.

This location will work for a dash gauge as well.

possible problem is that with this design and or configuration the gauge might hit the strut brace cross bar.

the 90 degree fitting its like 5$ at parker store 1/4 male to 1/8 female
