where to hook up a fuel pressure tester

I have a 01 7.3 with 193000. I just replace the fuel pump on a rail. It ran good for about 2 weeks. Now it feels and sounds like a motors not good enough fuel. I just picked up a fuel pressure tester to see if its getting enough pressure. And how much pressure should it be getting with all stack parts?

There are two available ports on the fuel bowl, both are just short threaded bolts, O ring, flat screwdriver head. Think you can go to Guzzle's site and find a picture. Guzzle is Bob at dieselorings.com
You should have between 55 and 70 pounds


Thanks,
