On my 86 2.8, I have found the fuel pressure test/relief valve is leaking. Can the part be removed separately? Where would I get a new one?

The Schrader valve? Yes, its removeable. I forget what size the hex is but it wasn't anything uncommon.

There is a washer underneath of it which is supposed to seal it; it has a sort of rubberized edge on it which may have failed on yours. New ones are available.

Thanks for the link, but it's actually the inside of the valve itself (core)

I guess I'll bust it off tomorrow and see what the inside looks like, if it's a common schrader valve core I suppose swapping a new one in would be fine. If not, ???

maybe...
Many standard tire valve etc isn't fuel proof and can leak very soon.
