Anybody have a plan for building a fuel pressure tester to install on the rail where the filter is? I know I need some rubber hose, a "T", and a gauge. Details? I can't find one at the parts store that will work. What about installing a schrader valve for future use??

There's a service port next to the distributor. For $20 it's not worth all of the fooling around! They'll even ship it right to your door!

"Fits most systems (except for Bosch, CIS-Jetronic and GM throttle body systems)"

My car doesn't have a service port. The last time someone checked the pressure they had to put an adapter in between the fuel line and the throttle body.

This one may work though.
