Mechanical gauge for sure. It will calm your fears about starting it. I'll second removing your spark plugs to help the engine turn over. I can usually build up between 20-40 pounds of pressure just turning the engine over this way. It may take 4-5 successive tries to get there though.

I would seriously recommend not starting the motor untill you're sure...
