Fuel pressure gauge on maggie fuel rail

I need to replace the valve stem on the fuel block with my fuel pressure sensor. My question is, is there any trick to removing the valve stem? I tried to wrench it off and it wont budge. I cant put the torch to it. Do i have to remove the fuel block first?

If you are taking the Schrader valve out, you need the little tool to twist it out. It is the same tool a tire store would use for removing regular tire valve stems.

It will come out easy as pie with that tool.

why not read fuel pressure through the obd2 port?

Actually I was referring to the 1/8" NPT valve stem assembly that is screwed into the fuel block. I need to remove it so I can install my fuel pressure sensor.

You are right it is the schrader valve. I took he fuel block off and am having a machine shop drill and tap a new hole so I can keep both.

Might be best to just use a Tee fitting off that port if you want both.
