Do you know where I can find a 12v bolt? I can't find one anywhere online.

The stock fuel bleed screw is 6M x 1.00 and a 1/16 NPT should work there. That is where I intend to put mine, but haven't done it yet. Autometer has a 1/16 MNPT-to-1/8 FNPT adapter fitting.

Those are 12mm banjo bolts. If you need a 14mm, get an old overflow valve that have the bolt head in the end (so you can take it apart and rebuild them), and drill and tap it for the proper size (not sure what threads are in the end of them).

If you choose to step up to 1/8 NPT, you can get a 1/8 NPT street tee and a 1/8 NPT plug to retain the bleeding feature. Another option (if you are using nylon tubing) is to go to a good hydraulic/pneumatic store and get a 1/16 NPT-to-nylon tubing fitting. They are commonly used for pneumatic lines like air shifters and are available in straight, 45*, and 90*.

I e-mailed gino's and this is what they told me.

Mark,

The only 12-valve that I am sure the tapped banjo fitting will fit is
the
1997, and early 1998, 12-valve CTD. It will fit into the input, and
output,
of the fuel filter housing, which is similar to the 1998-1999 24-valve
fuel
filter housing. Since it is our opinion that monitoring fuel pressure
on the
12-valve engines is unnecessary, we have not verified fit for earlier
years.


If you need further assistance, please call our technical service line,
770-886-2500.
