Hey guys

Think i might have a fuel pressure problem on my Boss 260 (leaking down, has new upgraded fuel pump, am currently checking for a leaky injector but i think the reg might be shot/not holding pressure), just wondering where the best place to break into the inlet is?

The Boss has those Springlock quick disconnect fittings (also used on AC Lines) for both the inlet and outlet, theres no valves on the rail and everything else is metal or hardline :S So can't connect in there (or atleast i've got no idea where to get fittings for my gauge to fit....)

So that leaves the tank or the fuel filter?

Cheers

You have to either make am adapter or buy one in a fuel test kit.
