Easier way to check fuel pressure

Hey everybody! Just wanted to share a easier way to check your fuel pressure. Go down to a local pick and pull and chop off the hard fuel line that goes to the rubber fuel line and basically run "two" fuel lines with a T barb in the middle with the gauge hooked up. Make sure engine is cool, relieve your fuel pressure by loosening the fuel lines to the filter. It's a easier way to tap into the fuel system without the specially made banjo bolt fitting. This does work the fuel pressure gauge held steady at 44lbs during idle and the levels changed during acceleration/driving. DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! I am not held liable for any losses. Good luck and Cheers!

If anyone is interested I could start making some of these up for pretty cheap. Since most pick and pulls only get like a buck a foot. Their would not be a gauge or T fitting included. Just the flared ends to screw into your fuel line and the bit of hose that runs to the T fitting. So far I think I should be able to make a few if anyone is interested. Not trying to make a whole lot of money. Just trying to help out some fellow t4r members because I know how the whole lack of fuel/stalling issue feels like.

Would the t-fitting with Shrader valve be included or would we need to buy extra parts to make this work. I already have a fuel pressure gauge and prefer to use the same kind of valve I find on other vehicles.

Thanks for sharing J! I will have to make one of these.

3.4L Fuel (?) Issue | Page 2 | Tacoma World

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Besides the specialty SST fitting. This is the only other way to check fuel pressure. Or cut away at your timing belt cover to get a banjo bolt straight into the fuel rail. Or make one with a 90 degree bend in it. But even then their is very little if not no room to thread a banjo bolt into the end of the fuel rail. The system I have rigged up is nice because you could also plumb it in before your fuel filter as well to see what the pressure is before the filter. Just didn't see the point of trying to take the timing belt cover off, getting coolant everywhere and cutting away at the metal plate and butchering that all up. When its as simple as disconnecting the fuel line, reconnecting it with the same fittings/hose and a gauge inline and it works! As long as you can get that fitting loose to plumb it in you should be good.
