Fuel Press gauge

Ive tried searchin already, what size is the adaptor fitting that they sell. I would rather get it from a local hardware store. It looks like just 1/8" M to 1/8" F connections??? Or are they different sizes.

I think we all would like to go to the hardware store and get some of these parts but that's out. It has metric thread on one end, this is what i used and it worked great. 6.0L Fuel Pressure Adapter
After you get it installed and if your fuel pressure is 45 lbs or less at WOT you will need to install a new Reg Kit to bump up the pressure. Mine with 21k on it was 44 lbs WOT and 50 at idle now 64 idle and 62 WOT, low pressure kills injectors.

Yes, I am familiar with the spring upgrade, I am planning on going with an Airdog in the next to near future, Does anyone know the metric size, Im gonna just go to the hydraulic shop id rather not waste money on shipping a tiny brass coupler that I know exists somewhere local, I just need the size I can take care of the rest.
