Default Fuel pressure test fitting

I did a search and I couldn't find this specific info. I have a 1996 2wd 5.2L 1500 and I need to test the fuel pressure but I cannot seem to find the fitting. In my Yukon, it was very easy to locate.

Sorry to bug everyone with such a simple request but I have a small window of time to do this and I'm just not finding it.

Some people say their units don't have the test port, on both of mine, the port is on the drivers side rail over the head, pointed straight up. If no test point you would need to get out your tubing cutter and a compression tee, and install a schrader valve on the branch. (you would need two cuts if you cut into, over the eng, not recommended) I would probably cut under the truck somewhere, then you could do as you wished, with a schrader valve, a pvc tee, fuel hose good to at least 50 PSI (system pressure should be about 40 - 43 max)and 4 hose clamps to go over the hose and barbs .
