Fuel Pressure Testing?

Where have you guys found the proper adapter to screw into the fuel rail to use a modern fuel pressure gauge? I can't find a gauge in the proper metric size. I believe that I need an adaptor to fit the kind of fuel pressure gauge that it sold by Pep Boys, Advance Auto, etc.

Thanks

I just get a hose that goes over the threads and clamp the heck out of it.

Thanks SoCal - I was thinking of using that as my method of last resort, as I haven't been able to find an adaptor anywhere, even though the Haynes manual show one. I guess I'll just keep a fire extinguisher nearby. Maybe it would be a good idea to back the car out of the garage!!! Again, thanks for the reply.

I did what SoCal suggested and it worked fine. I tried to buy a fuel pressure gauge kit and they wanted $45, so I when to the local hydraulic hose shop and they "made" a gauge w/a hose that I slip over the threads and "clamp the heck out of it"! It cost $14.

Thanks GT - I should have contacted you guys first - because I did buy the gauge and then found out it wouldn't fit! Sometimes, I got's more money than smarts. Oh well, at least we're now having nice, 70 degree weather in Virginia.

OH GREAT!!!! I've got to go to the new Homeland Security Office in D.C. tomorrow to look at a geotechnical engineering problem. I just checked the weather after I got your note - Now I'll get drenched!!! Maybe the bombing will start tonight and they'll advise me to stay away for security reasons.
