Its a 1/8 compression fitting... Most times you can pull it off and reuse it, but if not any GOOD plumbing supply place or hydraulic fitting place should have the parts...

I think you can even get them at Home Depot or Lowes. Look in the plumbing fittings by where the stuff to hook up ice maker hardware is.

Hey if you ever are in need of the ferrel again aka crush sleeve, most truck stops and dealers carry a full range of the air and fluid fittings. And yeah put in a good quality fuel pressure guage, that is the one guage you dont want to cheap out on, it's like a heart monitor for your truck.
