PK-Oil Press. ~ I am confident the problem here is that you over tightened the rear U bracket and thus pulled the movement insdie the gauge all the way to the rear of the gauge, thus making the button inop. You can take the gauge out and look at the back and you should see the metal can is now slightly deformed around the mounting screws and no longer a flush flat back but now raised up around the screws/nuts. Luckily this can be fixed by you by simply holding the gauge from the front and pushing the back of the gauge (on the screws) against the side of something firm to push them back flush with the back of the gauge. This will fix your problem.
Thanks for the super quick responce. It really means alot when companies back their products and help out their customers. I will send you in the digital gauge shortly and I will try and fix the oil pressure gauge according to your suggestions.

Well the plan was to get my exhaust worked on today but everyone in town decided to get there exhaust leaks fixed. So this friday (black friday) I have an appointment with my muffler guy 8 a.m. sharp.

Otherwise, I recieved these two items in the mail yesterday.



Very nice indeed!

I did overtighten the bracket and thus pulling the whole movement inside to the rear. By doing that it made the little adjuster knob on the front come flush with the gauge face.

This is a before picture. As you can see I did deform the metal case by overtightening the screws.



I simply uninstalled the gauge and used some pliers to push back in the metal rear. And it worked.







Im glad it was as simple as that. Now that I have it all fixed, I reinstalled the gauge using the bracket but this time not so tight. Thanks Prosport Gauges for the help.
