Fuel pressure gauge help!!

Trying to install a fuel pressure gauge and the instructions simply say " connect the fuel pressure sending unit to the fuel system.(preferably at the fuel rail)."
Uh, ok, where do I start? Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Dave

Instructions say on the fuel rail and nothing else.

ive been told there is a access port on the bottom of the fuel bowl but its a different thread not a 1/8. I ran my gauge off my raptor pump and set it. its under the truck. I am gonna be putting one up top still outside the cab. probably on the cowl there, will most likely buy the billet cap or just try to tap the side of the fuel bowl itself.

yeah im putting the one on my 7.3 on the cowl. well I will actually end up with 2, one under the hood, it came with my RR but for some reason i cant talk anyone into riding under the hood at WOT so i can see what pressure is so hence the one on the cowl

Evan is correct, there is a plug in the bottom of the fuel bowl. You can adapt to with fittings or pickup one of these. 6.0L Fuel Pressure Adapter
