HELP - need a fuel pressure sensor

I have 2000 zetec DOHC. My fuel pressure sensor which bolts to the fuel rail is leaking gas through the vacuum line into my intake. i have disconnected it and plugged the lines. However it is still leaking gas around the lower vacuum line connection. The leak is bad enough that i am worried about the potential for fire,

No parts store have the fuel pressure sensor available. No where online either. i have not had much luck at junk yards. they say they do not deal with sensors. i even called the ford dealership and they said they cant get it.

Does anyone know where i can find a fuel pressure sensor??? Anyone have one they are willing to sell? Any help would be greatly appriciated

Fuel Sensor

I have one here that my son broke the clip part on it so you have to wrap a wire or something to keep the plug in. I got another from local yard when I got the hose line so I could make a fuel pump pressure tester. I put that one on but I still have the other. It still works okay it just needs something to keep the wire in. You don't have any junk yards in your area where you can go take a part off yourself? This one's not too hard. I think with 8mm socket wrench short extension and a hacksaw blade you could have one off in 5 - 10 minutes. Use the socket to take off the 2 screws ( don't lose the little blue O-ring ) and if the plastic clip is too hard to get off in the yard then just cut the rubber covered plastic line with hacksaw blade. I know the vacuum line will be hard but only to get it to move . I had to use needle nose pliers to break it loose. Just chop that with the blade too if you have to. Boom, you got a sensor

Lost the O-ring. Any suggestions on easy replacement? Ford dealer can get a pack in a week or more...
