I would like to install a fuel pressure gauge in the engine compartment near the edlebrock 4 barrel on my 55 SB Belair. The smallest low pressure gauge I can find is inch and a half. It seems I have seen some smaller then that but have been unable to find one.Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks Larry but I think that one is also considered inch and a half. The seller may not be including the frame around the face. Thanks for your input.

Not sure what your goal is. One time check of pressure why not use a quality vac gauge to check pressure. Usually pressure gauges go on pass side and you are working the throttle on drivers side --can you see it?
They can leak. My experience is where you lose pressure is winding out and idle readings don't tell the whole story.
On a road course car we run a remote gauge so we can read it through the ws. Good luck and have fun.
