1995 Chevy Silverado 1500, 305 V8 Stalling

Truck idles in Park & Neutral just fine.
The truck cuts out and stalls after stopping.
Several things have been replaced.
Throttle Position Sensor
PCV Valve Distributor & Rotor
Fuel Filter
Spark Plugs

We have checked everything simple so far. We are leaning toward the fuel pump but we want to check the pressure & pressure regulator. There is no way to check the pressure. There is one fuel line and a return line.
Can someone explain how you check the fuel pressure?
Surely there is some trick that the dealership or a technician does to check the fuel pressure?
I'm leaning towards cutting the rubber part of the fuel line and installing a "T" and connecting a fuel pressure hose/gauge to check and see whats going one before buying and changing the fuel pump.

Any tips?

there is an adapter that goes in place of the fuel filter or look back at an older thread about tbi
