I recently bough an Autometer oil pressure guage and bought the nylon tubing kit with the adapters. Problem is none of them will thread all the way on the back of the guage, and this tubing and fitting kit was the one that was needed fo this guage. Any help is appreciated

The adaptor won’t thread all the way in? You use Teflon tape, it might not thread all the way on.

Do NOT use the Nylon **** at all!!! It’s problematic, it can (and in many instances WILL) leak, it can rupture or crack or they can melt if too close to a heat source. Many tracks won’t allow a vehicle using Mechanical gauges in the passenger cabin onto the track with nylon lines.

Purchase the correct AutoMeter braided stainless steel lines. They come in many varied lengths and they are 100% foolproof with never a potential for leaks. Yes the SS lines are costly, but it’s better than dealing not only with a potential leak, but worse yet, possible fire.

Yes, people do use the nylon ****, and may not have ever had issues, but as you’re experiencing that **** is a PIA to work with and the nylon line is problematic as noted above. The SS line you just screw and secure the ends to gauge and engine source, done.

Thanks for the reply! Will definitely be investing in the stainless steel line, thanks for the tip this is my first time messing with any aftermarket gauges
