Only if you use a gauge with a small, 10-32 connection.
Not enough room for the standard 1/8" NPT fittings found on most gauges.

Weld/braze a thin NPT nut on there just above or
below the barb hole and drill into the cavity. You
would not have to relocate the barb that way.
It might look a little ghetto though. If you have a
anno job on it, the welding will mess it up.

There is NOT enough room inside the MicroRock to access the air supply that way and it is extremely hard to get a good enough weld to be air tight on a thin walled anodized aluminum part like the body of a MicroRock. Anodizing really screws with the integrity of the weld.

My initial question wold be why would you need or want a gauge on you LPR? If you want to know what preasure you are running at then get one of the palmers rock tester thingys, or you could make one your self.

I have often thought of putting a post rock gauge on my bko. The best way would be to put a reg in the tray spliced into the lp hose going to the solinoid valve. Maybe cut a whole through the tray on the left side big enough for 1/8 pipe to fit in and then into a fitting attached to where the current barb is. Someone in the ICD forum was looking for testers for a post lpr expansion chamber. It would be good if you could tap into that, then through the whole in the tray and boom, you have your lpr pressure in real time. Just a suggestion, I don't have the guts to do it myself.

One of the things we do to gauge the LPR's we use on our Tribals (just to see where they're operating, we don't usually play with the gauges on) is that we put a t-barb between the output and the marker, and two short pieces of hose on either side of the T. Should also work on 'cockers.
