Fuel Pressure Tester -- Get from Honda??

I've been to 4 different auto parts store today and ended up having to rent a fuel pressure tester today -- and THAT even didn't work.

I do have the service manual, and there's a special 12mm adapter that fits on the fuel injector rail for testing the fuel pressure, but no-one seems to have it -- has anyone found one, locally or online?? Do I have to order it from a local honda dealer?

Has anyone tested their fuel pressure?

Thank you!

Re: Fuel Pressure Tester -- Get from Honda??

I'll answer my own question. I rented a tester from Autozone, but I couldn't use it properly. The manual says you have to put it inline to the fuel rail (even though the Ludes have a test port/pressure release port).

There's an adaptor nut from honda - $18, and the pressure tester is about $80.

I can't get any straight answers about whether the pressure tester is something special or not (or lined with gold).
