Fuel Pressure Port - 97' F250 - Where is it?

I watched a video, on youtube, on how to check my fuel pressure. It involved installing a schrader valve into a fuel port. I guess the powerstroke in this video was a later model because I can't seem to find any fuel port on mine . Anyone here have 97' that can share how they do it?

Mike,

I don't have a picture of my fuel bowl, but my 97 has a schrader valve on it already.

The pictures here http://www.dieselorings.com/docs/OBSFuelBowlRebuild.pdf might help you out.

I haven't measured my fuel pressure, but it appears that the schrader valve is after the fuel regulator so it should give you the info you need.

One of three things it could be. The guy in the video has e-fuel conversion, PO of your truck already did e-fuel conversion, or your not looking hard enough.

Its under the engine cover to the right of the fuel bowl theres what looks exactly like a tire valve stem cover screwed onto it.

Either post the video or a pic of your engine bay with the cover off and that will give the answer right away

Found it! ..thank you. Just like you said: Tire stem cover. I was thinking it was a port on the bowl itself.

Now I just need a 90 adapter so I can get my fuel pressure gauge hose on .... Anyone know the size?? ...my helminc.com manuals haven't arrived yet so I can't look it up.

The port in the regulator is 1/8 NPT. Be careful not to overtighten it as the regulator body cracks easily. Hopefully you are not planning a permanent gauge installation. They cannot handle the pulses from the mechanical fuel pump and usually short order. Cheers!
