CUMMINS 14MM FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE SNUBBER
* SNUBBER ELIMINATES GAUGE NEEDLE BOUNCE
* USE ON ANY FUEL SYSTEM WITH A 14MM X 1.5 THREAD
* FASTER INSTALLATION THAN A NEEDLE VALVE
Now, it's easier than ever to install a fuel pressure gauge on your Cummins diesel! If you want to install a fuel pressure gauge on a 94 to 98 Cummins, you have to use a needle valve to dampen the pressure spikes from your fuel pump. NOT ANYMORE!
DAMPENS PRESURE SPIKES FOR ACCURATE READINGS
Here's the reason why you need a pressure snubber. The lift pump on your Cummins diesel is nothing more than a piston pump, similar to a pressure washer pump. During the pumping cycle, the pressure rises rapidly to 50 to 60 PSI. On the return stroke of the piston, the pressure drops to 10 to 15 PSI. This has been checked with accurate pressure gauges. The pumping cycles produces gauge needle bounce. In fact, your fuel pressure gauge will never smooth out, regardless of RPM. That's why you need a Tork Tek gauge snubber.
SNUBBER ELIMINATES GAUGE NEEDLE BOUNCE
We engineered the gauge snubber at the same time as the Tork Tek adjustable overflow valve. During the early days of developing the overflow valve, it became clear that our expensive test gauges would be destroyed without a way to dampen the violent pressure spikes of the Cummins lift pump. The CBS010 eliminated the needle bounce and saved our test gauges.
Inside the snubber, and impossible to photograph, is a micro calibrated restrictor made specifically for the 94 to 98 Cummins diesel (5.9 and 8.3). The restrictor dampens the pressure spikes from the Cummins lift pump, so your fuel pressure gauge will last! The hole size is a precise balance between gauge response and dampening effect. The restrictor tolerance is .0008. (8 ten thousands of an inch)
MAKES GAUGE INSTALLATION EASY
On one end of the CBS010 tapped fuel banjo bolt with snubber is an 1/8" female pipe thread for fuel pressure testing or permanent gauge installations. Unlike other models of presuure snubbers, our fitting does not require expensive adapters! It will install directly on your P7100. By installing the snubber directly on the inlet of the your P pump, you will get the most accurate readings.
At Tork Teknology, we plate the snubber in a high quality rust resistant coating. We don't take short cuts that minimize quality! Plating is a more expensive process, but it's worth it. Your new gauge snubber will look great and remain rust free for many years.
Included with the snubber are detailed instructions and banjo seal washers. If you are going to install a fuel pressure gauge on your P pump, do it right with a Tork Tek Cummins Banjo Snubber. The CBS010 snubber will also work on any diesel that has a 14MM x 1.5 thread.
