Vacuum gauge help



Vacuum gauge help

Postby chromebumpers » July 20th, 2013, 11:40 am

Can someone please advise me on a vacuum gauge. Just a reliable, easy to find and reasonably priced vacuum gauge. I need to know the best connection location for timing, diagnostic testing and any attachments/hardware needed for using on a stock small block Chevy.

Thank you,
Rich

Great! Thanks Grumpy!
I don't know how I got to today without ever having one. Will the instructions be complete enough to show where to connect (properly connect) because I understand there are different pressures within the same system depending where your're connected? I'm puzzled why a perminantly mounted vacuum gauge is not a must have for most serious performance cars and trucks? Instead I see mostly temp and oil gauges.
