I understand the wanting to leave it in, however the hose from the kit isn't meant to be used continously, whereas the grease gun hose is built for high pressure and an extended life. The fittings on the hose from the kit are short and lightweight, whereas the grease gun hose fittings are longer and the brass is thicker. You can also buy the banjo bolt shown above and replace the schreader/banjo bolt on the IP and run the snubber hose from there. Just make sure and have at least a 180* bend in the hose to reduce the 'water hammer' effect.

Would use it for long period? Or wouldn't use it for long with the valve in there?

For me, I would use it for a little while, i.e. month or 2, until I could afford the right parts to do it permanently.

well its not a matter of being broke, just figured it I could use the grease gun on the factory banjo with the. Valve removed would be less work lol

When I get around to it ill have to order that bolt and the hose, then I can do the snubber and sender on there

The grease gun hose has npt fittings/threads on it and the schreader valve has different threads. If you do purchase that kit, you can test your pressure anytime, and when you get your gauge mounted, you can see if it is working right.

The grease gun hose you can get from an Auto Parts store. You will also need a 3/8" coupler, I think, but am not sure, and you can get that from a hardware store.
