Default Where can I get a schrader fitting for the fuel line?

I have a fuel pressure tester that has both large and small
schrader valve connectors. I need to check what is happening with the
fuel pressure between the fuel rail and the fuel filter on a 1988
Camry 4-cyl. At Pep Boys I can get two 5/16 to 1/8 MPT barb fittings
(brass) and a 1/8 brass tee. But they did not have any 1/8 MPT
schrader valves (that would screw into the center hole on the tee). I
have checked every automotive parts store in town and the specialty
fitting suppliers, nobody seems to have schrader valves that will
screw into a tee like I need.
Most places I went to and asked for the fittings to be able to connect
my fuel press gauge into the fuel line didn't have a clue what I was
trying to do, or what a "schrader valve tee" for fuel line is!
It would seem that fuel pressure testers and the need to do pressure
testing on fuel injection cars would be a very common thing, and so
the same places that sell the fuel press testers would also have
available schrader tee adapters for the many many cars on the road
taht don't have any schrader fitting on the fuel rail or line to
it.....but they don't! I guess that would make too much sense.
I just checked eBay for schrader adapters for a fuel line, there is
nothing like that on sale now.

SO where can I get one?

You might take a look at:

http://www.actron.com/product_detail.php?pid=16173

Seems like they may have what you need and sell it individually.

I've always had good luck finding stuff like this at NAPA auto parts stores.
Hope this helps.

I'm not positive I understand your question. Here is what I think you are
asking:
You have a fuel rail that does not have a shrader valve on it, or any other
means of connecting a pressure tester. If that isn't your question then
correct me.
If you don't have a valve installed then I don't know of a way to install
one. That's not to say there is no way to do this. In this event, you should
be able to remove the return fuel line where it changes from solid line to
flexible and attach your tester there. You will be able to get a pressure
reading by turning the key on but you won't be able to run the engine while
monitoring the pressure.
HTH, Dave

According to the 1993 manual, there is a special service tool (SST
09268-45012) which appears to be a fuel pressure tester with a banjo
connector at the end. After removing the fuel filter inlet banjo bolt,
this gets set on top and both it and the fuel inlet line are bolted
down to the fuel filter.
Jumper terminals FP and +B in the data link connector.
Switch ignition to ON.
Measure fuel pressure. (38 to 44 PSI)
Remove jumper
Start engine and disconnect vacuum sensing hose from the air intake
chamber and plug air intake chamber outlet.
Measure pressure (38 to 44 PSI)
Reconnect vac hose and measure (31 to 37 PSI)
If pressure is not specified check vac sensing hose and fuel pressure
regulator.
Stop engine and verify pressure holds at 21 PSI or more for 5 minutes.
Remove SST and reassemble line to filter with 2 new gaskets and
tighten bolt to 22 lbs/ft.

All that being said, I'm wondering if a banjo bolt with a schraeder
valve built in might not be available somewhere.
Found this for the Actron unit....
