Topic related info:
The oil-filled gauges are good for vibration environments like when engine mounted. The problem with the oil-filled gauges is that they are a sealed design to keep the oil inside. This makes the gauge reading change with different temperatures. My oil-filled gauge will read 7 psi when cold but only about 3 psi when heated by the engine. The pressure inside the gauge changes. To fix this, there must be a way of relieving that pressure back to atmospheric.
