Harbor freight has a kit too but its hit and miss on if their kit holds pressure... i had to crank the one adapter on with my giant set of pliers and it still leaked slowly around the fittings but held it good enough to get a pressure test from it. think autozone and other car parts places you can rent/borrow them from

Most places wont have the diesel fuel pressure tester, too expensive and most people wont be asking for that. I have a snap on tester, its ok, there tools are junk anyway....my co worker has a kit that you hook up to compressed air and it works awesome, he also has every adapter known to man, helps he has been at it for 30 years lol

Buying a $40,000 truck (or whatever) is redamndiculous if all you need is a $3-5,000 repair to make your truck good again. Find somebody who can do it up right, you can probably have more power and better MPG out of that diesel without spending a whole lot more than the bare minimum to repair it. (But I don't know how good the rest of your truck is...)



On the other hand, I co-drove an EcoBoost '12 F-150 crew cab with the 5.5' box most of the way across the US and back a couple months ago- that was a seriously nice truck. Good power, good mileage, bladder-busting range (20 mpg and a 36 gallon tank) comfortable seats and nice riding suspension.
