2 techt bolt engine questions

So I ordered a new TechT L7 HE bolt engine and have 2 questions.

1. I want to put a gauge on the back so will any gauge fit? If so what's a good pressure range to get? 0-300? 0-600? Any install tips welcome

2. Do I need a new O-ring kit for the bolt engine? I have the $55 parts kit from DP but do I need different o-rings for the bolt engine that aren't in that kit?

Thanks in advance for any help

Any standard 1/8" NPT threaded gauge will work - although you may have some clearance issues with larger faced gauges. I'd stick with the micro gauge.

As for pressure range, the G3 operates at ~150 to 160 psi. I think a 0-300 psi gauge is sufficient. I think the next most narrower common gauge is a 0-160 - which is too close to the operating prerssure of the marker (and makes it VERY easy to blow the gauge if overpressurized).

Awesome. Anyone have any examples of ones that fit? Or is there a specific "micro gauge" you were talking about?

The G3 should share the same orings between stock bolt and techt bolt.


Revi and Threshold users, however, have different orings between bolts (im 85% sure on this)
