[QUOTE=Why J?;14158169]Unfinished up my fuel system last night. I pressure tested it and have. I leaks with good pressure at the rail.

I went with AN from the rail to the frame just over the trans skid to hard lines. Put the new filter, Fram G15 $4.99, and filter mount, conduit holder $2.50, in the stock location. Ran some fuel injected hose on back to the pump.

Over all it was a pain dealing with the hard lines. If I did it over again I would go all AN.







Do the fuel rail fittings you used have metal clips in them or how do they connect to the fuel rail? The russell ones I got have plastic clips in them.

I didn't get the ones with the clips, I had read that they can come loose and spray gas all over your runnin engine.

I went with the updated Russell fittings that screw together.

Im trying to plan out my fuel system for a 2003 4.8L with the regulator on the rail. Its a long story but suffice it to say I own the engine but I wont see it for another few months. If im correct I can use Russell to AN at the fuel rail, but Im unsure af what I should do from the pump to there. Should I just run all new fuel injection hose to the pump? Go from the hard lines alont the frame? Ive never done fuel system work outside of swapping out a fuel pump but I want to do it right and would appreciate any input that yall have, since you have personal experience.

I used rubber FI line from the pump to the filter, you can keep the stock FI line it is 3/8. Then from the filter I used 3/8 hard line to the AN stuff up to the fuel rail. If I had to do it over again I would use rubber FI line from the pump to the filter and then all AN.

Ok thanks. I think you mentioned some of it earlier in the thread but I couldnt find it, do you remember what the sizes are for any of this? If im correct the supply and return on the pump are barbs for a 3/8 FI hose. Do you by chance know the sizes on the rail? Im pretty sure youve said this all before so thanks.

Do the fuel rail fittings you ordered have to have a special wrench to screw together? Also any pics of your finished air intake system?

Also will a factory air intake tube work between the MAF and throttle body?

If you don't want the fittings scratched up you need the anodized wrench. I put some tape on my adjustable wrench and they are fairly scratch free.

It should. Mine was ugly so I didn't reuse it.

Yeah I dont care about scratches. The part Im talking about needing a special wrench for is the small part in front of the part that goes on the fuel rail.

A wrench works fine.

Yo why j, clear out your messages and specify what measurements you request. All the stuff I bought from you is sitting right in my living room until I can sell my old ford pickup and buy some more parts.
