A pic to match yours Bill. It took 3 gaskets total but it's steady at 2.8psi. It really did not like the initial 4psi and was still unhappy even at 3.2 before the 3rd gasket.

Great info Bill, thank you. The one that was on there (before it began leaking) was putting out 2.0-2.5 at idle and as low as 1.5psi at high RPMs. BUT, it ran great so I never worried about it.
