    You can rent a fuel pressure kit from the auto parts store. There is no test port. You must insert an adapter tee in the supply quick connect fitting. I believe it's a Ford type.

    If you have any sort of octane booster or drying product for water in the gas, the needle tip can swell and stick. Other than that, lower popoff to about 45psi.

    Have you ever pulled the fuel baffle out? That style has a little trap door at the bottom that can get warped and hang shut. Just remove the trap door completely.
