I think I have been able to install the font using a mixture of the 
instructions at your link and at,
but I don't see how to get the output in the font.  I tried

\input texinfo

X@code{aaaa 'bbbbbb}X

\font\texttt=ulgb8r at 10pt %Letter Gothic-Bold
\font\textttsl=ulgbi8r at 10pt %Letter Gothic-BoldItalic
@end tex

X@code{aaaa 'bbbbbb}X


but both lines are in the same font.  I managed to get a display of the 
font using "pdfetex testfont".  See attached file.  The straight 
apostrophe seems to be located at position '037, it's just a question of 
how to get it.
