where can I get just a sender or what can I use AS a sender for the light. All the other stuff I have. Is there another application that uses something like this that I can get a sender from?

You can use a HOBBS SWITCH that you can set at any pressure that you want to turn on at. This one is set to turn on at less than 15 psi, yet you can adjust it to a lower psi. Then just wire up a power source, light and ground and be done.

I am not sure of that. I have one on my propane system and it is normally open until boost hits 2 psi and then turns on.

This one is normally closed and will turn off if the pressure is greater than 15 psi, yet you can turn it down to whatever pressure you want.

That looks pretty basic. Where can i find it at and how well does it work? Difficult to install or just screw it in and hook up 2 wires?

Look on Ebay or somewhere like that. Make sure that you get one that is normally closed (on) and opens(off) between 3 to 20 lbs. The hobbs switch is generally 1/8" NPT pipe thread.

Is it safe to assume that the hobbs switch gets mounted somewhere between the gauge and the gauge sending unit? Just so you know, after I get this fixed were gonna talk about all these cool little DIY mods and foolers that you and mopar1973man have done...in depth!!!!......lol

If you use a tee, then you have 2 ports from the fuel pump, one for the sensor and the other for the hobbs switch.

Makes sense to me. As of right now the only gauge I dont have hooked up is my pyro gauge because Im a little nervous to go drilling holes in my manifold. If I remember correctly, I read somewhere that you don't want to drill all the way through because it needs to bottom out at the bottom correct? But my sensor has a little nipple sticking past the threads, so basicly you drill a small pilot hole (like you would any other time) all the way through and then the bit that you drill for tapping you go 1/2-3/4 through maybe? I think it was your write up that I remember reading that
