Hi to All, this may appeal to those of you who like add-on’s it’s purely an exercise in i think I can do that so i will, may be some one can give me a good excuse as to why I’ve done this but lets see what you think, the first panel at the back of the engine bay just didn’t look right but the space at the front of the bay seemed to be made for it, the panel is ten and a half inches by four inches tapering to three and a half inches, this is because the area tapers, note also the spacer nuts this is to over come the ½” return on the back edge of the front body work.
all the items used were purchased from
airlink-compressors.co.uk
The pressures gauges are ¼” BSPT x 50mmdial centre back connectionGC5014/4
Tees push fit PTO6/4
And push fit connector to the back of the gauge is stud female BSPP PFS 06/4
6mm air line is nylon tube 30m 5409 MNT06R (the R denotes colour)
Total cost about £56.00p but £10.99p was for tubing.

I thought about it for a while but i doesn't serve much. Air springs do not have the same pressure. I prefer a MARS kit with a Portable gauge in order to troubleshoot quickly. Please tell me your project of use.

I have fitted a single gauge and a schrader valve to manually inflate the system.
I carry an emergency 12v tyre compressor and I use Rover Renovations manual switch box to control each air bag separately.



I would also like to fit another gauge inside the car - ideally under the flap of the lighter socket where it is out of sight.
However I can't find a really small panel mounted gauge.

Hi to all, I did look to mounting the gauges inside the vehicle but there is only one place and that in the ash tray but as you say it's finding gauges small enough, what i did find was that although the pressure is 10 bar +- 5% the pressure in the bags is only between 3.5 bar and 4.5 bar depending on the ride hight and also i now know that i have a leak in the left back air bag is'nt there always something, still they have been on the vehicle since 1995 so i should'nt complain.
Best Regards sillyboy

Your approach to a problem is comendable and interesting, I also note that you mention one air bellows is leaking...joins on the original pipe work isnt ideal for gauges or joins purely on a heat basis within the engine bay.
I often replace pipe work with joins as this is where they always leak.
With a system in good overall condition there's no real need for tons of extra bits connected, the more you have the more its going to leak.
