I did some searching and they sort of explain how to adjust them on the install download on BBKPERFORMANCE.com but I still haven't found if I can check the pressure with a pressure gauge or if I need a liquid filled one. I have a digital gauge that has different settings on it and I'm wondering if I can use that

Hey man, i had a adjustable on on my 88 302 and would think its similar. I think the liquid is necessarily needed, more a preference. I would say get the liquid filled, makes it easier to read. I believe the liquid is to prevent the needle from dancing around due to vibration. I think thats the only way to adjust too.

Thanks, ya I got tired of waiting for a answer and tried to check it with my digital one and the Schrader valve screw is too large for it so I'm gonna have to get a mechanical fuel pressure gauge. Would you happen to know of any stores that sell them? The only store I can find them in is O'Rielly's and theirs only is good for 15 p.s.i.

I go to a local race shop when im to impatient to wait for shipping lol...i actually went there to get a fuel pressure gauge as well (all local auto parts only had low pressure gauges for carbureted engines)....it just sits under hood on the fuel rail and I agree with above statment that the liquid filled gauge is just to dampen the vibration to make it easier to read..and the liquid filled was the same price...
