fuel pressure gauge port?

where are you guys taking your fuel pressures from? is there a plug on the fuel bowl to easily pull out and use?

or is there somewhere easier to take it from?

(stupid me had the fuel bowl out yesterday too and i can't remember)

Yes. I just installed one. Depending on how large the sender is, it may be a bit tight to insall in the port. The port size is 12mmX1.5. You may also need an adapter,
12mmX1.5(male) to 1/8"NPT(female). I used the diesel manor kit that utilizes a 3 foot stainless braided hose and mounted the sender on the fender. The adapter is not in the kit.

i was thinkin it was similar to an oil pressure gauge, just the fitting and no sender or anything.

Red Arrow in the picture is the autometer sender in the port at the back of the fuel bowl... There is an adapter from ITP to screw into the bowl.

If you want to get a reading from the back of the fuel bowl the size is #4 ORB (o-ring boss) I did this and got a male #4 ORB to 1/4NPT female for the gauge. Any hydraulic shop will have those fittings in stock
