Assuming you have a 12mm banjo you can put it on the fuel filter outlet, if its a 14mm you can put it on the injection pump inlet. Then get an 1/8 MP X 04 JIC(AN) fitting and cap, thread that into the tapped banjo bolt for an easy access port and your good to go.

If you want to put it on the IP inlet, you willl need to tap your Banjo bolt. I have never seen a tapped banjo bolt for a 12V.

Here what it should look like (with the required needle valve):

Does anybody sell a complete fuel pressure kit for the 12V's?

I've had one on mine for several years. It uses a Westach gauge coupled with an oil sending unit used on Harley motorcycles. Westach helped me put it together. Its been fairly accurate, but the senders don't hold up. They start to fail after 2 to 6 months. They can't seem to handle the fluctuations. Not the pounding from the spikes so much - I have snubbers for that - but just the constant changes. At $30 or so each, its just not worth it.

I finally pulled it out a few weeks ago.

Muddy, all you need to do is pull that IP inlet banjo off, tap it 1/8" NPT, get a few fittings, a needle valve (or pressure snubber), some 1/8" DOT air brake line, some 1/4" DOT air brake line, and a guage....

I'm sure that with a bit of time and effort we can create a fuel system for the 12V trucks. Being some of these trucks are pumping some serious numbers on the rollers and it would help for the power end of it...

Is an isolator necessary on a mechanical fuel pressure gauge?

No not really... I'm plumb straight to the fuel pressure gauge with fuel... Just a needle valve to dampen the pulses... If a leak or failure was to happen you can shut down the fuel with a needle valve...

In time all isolators will fail and allow fuel to the gauge... If you deside to use a isolator just add a needle valve for shutdown purpose...
