This pictures show the installation of a fuel pressure gauge in the engine of my Z.

This gauge is very versatile cause allows you to watch the pressure of the fuel at any moment to detect if everything is functioning ok.

The fact is that I'm not very happy with this installation and I'm planning on removing the hose, and mounting the gauge directly on the Schrader valve.

Well, as I said before, I was not happy with the hose, I didn't want fuel leaking over the hot engine,  who does?   so I just bought a 90 custom made coupler and installed the gauge just over the injector's rail valve
