Not sure it works as described.

Comments about Racor Fuel Filter Indicator Gauge:

I installed the indicator guages on my Racor Filters used as a primary filter system on twin Detroit 8.2 engines. Within less than 3 hours of running time both were in the red showing the filters needed changing. Upon changing the filters, that didn't look dirty, and running about 2 hours the indicators were in the red again. I ran for 687 miles and all worked fine. Maybe these are not built to work with Big Boy engines.

    Comments about Racor Fuel Filter Indicator Gauge:

    Racor has a new similar diesel fuel filter gauge with a T handle and back flow preventer valve that screws right into the top of your Racor 500, 900, or 1000 filter. No mess no fuss works flawlessly. To bad West Marine does not carry it. The one I bought from them was nothing but a pain. Do your research and install the new Racor T handle gauge. You won't be dissapointed and will be thrilled by how well it works. It's saved my butt from a very dicey situation.
