you can get constant +12v power from behind the Light switch. Mines Electtric but you have to let it calibrate before you can crank ignition.

^thanks for the response^

i think the gauge is defective. i hooked it to a constant, so it would get the constant power it needs to calibrate itself. instead of moving to the stop pin, it moved to about 8psi, then jumped to about 23psi. as if were calibrating itself, but the needle was in the wrong position. any thoughts?
