    where to find a fuel pressure checker tool?

    Have been reading this forums for last couple of weeks as my 2002 virage seems to be getting low fuel. Found lots of info about fuel pressure...except one. Where do I find a fuel pressure checker tool? I have a tee to hook into and rented an auto fuel pressure checker but none of the attachments that fit. So where do I find one?

    Harbor Freight sells a fuel pressure kit that includes the Schrader adapter.

    I expect there are other sources.

    Well these two look exactly like what I found at auto zone and it also has a Schrader valve. But the valve just slides over the thread as it is too big and does not screw on. Suggestions?

    Then the one you have is not the correct Schrader valve. I have one of the kits from harbor freight and it does have the correct size adapter to fit the Schrader valve tee on the Polaris Ficht fuel return hose.

    Another option is to unscrew the spring loaded insert from the Schrader valve tee and clamp a short hose section between the tee and your pressure gauge. Be careful about fuel leaks and have rags handy before you remove the hose afterwards. Loosen the gas cap to release air pressure before working with the tee.

    On cars there are also 2 sizes,If I remember correctly GM uses the larger size and Ford uses the smaller size(sorry for the fuzzy memory,my Snap On brand gauge uses a square or round adapter housing). The Amazon gauge Blue Fish posted looks to have an adapter to fit the smaller Ford schrader-I could not make out how harbor freight does it. The autozone gauge should have an adapter of some sort available.
