I know for some half inch ratchets they make Alan sockets that are no bigger then the short side of an Alan key.. Might wanna browse around at an oriellys or tool store.

The right tool makes all the difference. Allen head sockets and an extension and you'll go right in. Also its called an "Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator" or "AFPR". Kirban has been the best one I've used. Hopefully you do not have a BBK or a generic one...

Good deal, Kirban is the best. BBKs leak, even Aeromotives have issues...

I had a BBK leak all over the damn place. After some research, turns out its common. If you got a good one consider yourself lucky and roll with it.

You may also be able to cut down a spare allen key to fit in the small space as well.
