what gauge (brand/thread size) will fit vs2/3 front block?
i need it to get up too 1000-1200 psi.

I think they use metric threads but idk what it is.

Why do you need 1000-1200 psi on a vs2/3 front block?

egad!!!! will it not handle it?

No, it's designed with a pressure balance valve designed for pressures sub-500psi or so. Also... the highest tank output I know of is 1100psi, and that's the highest output my adjustable tank regulator will go. Normal tank inputs are 800-850psi.

The thread size would be 1/8"npt, same as the standard hoses. It's basically a gauge thread standard that even Kingman follows. For the markers you mentioned I would get a lower pressure reading since they run around 300ish psi. 0-600psi would be good as readings are best at the gauges mid range. Use the 0-1200psi and you'll be way off mid range.

so if i wanted to push 800-850 psi out of the block...would it not handle it?
btw, its not going to be used in a vs2/3

It will work.
