Not 100% sure.. but you can get them really cheap on RockAuto Auto Parts

Or get the PPE bleeder screw off a vendor in this forum... they're alot nicer than the stock plastic ones..

Good luck!

I've got the aftermarket bleeder screw, not the plastic one. I am looking to install a gauge for lift pump pressure. Where does a guy measure lift pump pressure? Bleeder screw port was the only place I really thought. I want to get the sensor that plugs into my Edge which is 1/8 NPT.

On my LBZ I deleted the factory fuel filter and put a gauge in the loop of hose where the filter used to be.

Lubrication Specialties has a needle valve that screws in where the bleeder screw goes. Also it has a long hose, you can catch the fuel, so bleeding can be a little cleaner.
