Between the ages of 14-17, biking was my life. Well, one night my sister was out talking with her friends until 11 pm or so and when she came in, she forgot to close the garage door and my bike grew feet and never saw it again. Really sucked.

A few years back I bought a really nice Trek hardtail... it maybe has 15 miles on it. Just sitting in the garage. Waste, I know.

Mike for you supply line coming from the fuel pump to the front here, did you just clamp the rubber hose to the chrome pipe going to the fuel rail? Do you have another pic of this connection? Also I forget now just so I'm clear which line on the rail is the supply line, that's the lower one that is upfront correct? thanks

The supply line is the one that the fuel injectors are in - also the larger of the 2 lines if there is a size difference. Ideally, if you can use the proper connectors, and splice them into the fuel lines you have run, that would be the best route if you can crimp them together with high pressure line some how. I don't trust the old screw-type hose clamps, unless you have a good barbed fitting on the line to help seal and keep them together...

Yea I know, the lack of a barb on the steel supply line on the side of the Jeep worries me a bit. Do they sell barb fittings that connect to 3/8 brakeline style fittings? thx

This site has all the Ford Springlock connections with barbs on the ends:

These AN fittings are nice too:

Those barbed connections are pretty cool. Rob, I just put a double flare on the end of the metal lines and slid the rubber fuel injection line over it and clamped with a SS hose clamps. It was the cheap and easy route but works fine and has no leaks. You're only talking about 40 psi at WOT so that is not a huge amount of pressure. The supply is the lower one that goes into the little junction block on the fuel rail. Mine has a schrader valve installed on it. The rubber hose that connects my supply line to the fuel rail is only about 4" long as the two metal ends are within an inch or two from each other. .

That's good to know Mike, I am pretty much copying what you did I bought the same fuel pump and Fram filter as you too. I ordered one of the female springlock connections in the site above so it leaves me with a barb to connect a hose to the steel line on the side as well. Cool, I will make a couple double flares on the ends of my steel lines then. I bought a bunch of fuel injection clamps and still need to buy some FI hose. I noticed you have your fuelpump opposite of what I would have thought. I opened the box up for my pump the other night and it had the red cap with the brass fitting on the one end and it said that is the "fuel filter side", but you have it the opposite way with the fuel filter, but does it really matter? Thx

When I spoke to the engineer at airtek, they told me to have the large micron/low restriction filter before the pump which is basically the pick up sock in the tank. Then place the small micron filter after the pump and before the fuel rail. You might want to pick up one of those one-way check valves to place before the pump if you have not already. It will keep the fuel from back draining from the pump and help prevent it from dry run on initial start up. Before adding that , I would have to cycle the key 3-4 times before the pump would fully prime and sound normal. Now with the one-way check valve, it is fully primed first key cycle every time.

I'm typing this on my Blackberry from the airport waiting to board my first of five connecting flights to Alaska.

That's the exact same check valve that I bought. I believe that's the same eBay seller and all.

Made it to Seattle. Six hours to nap in the airport before I board my next plane.

Coiz - Question on your body seems. When you joined two flanges or made a lap joint and then welded them, did you use any sealant between the metal before joining them? I would think the heat would compromise anything between but I gotta make sure since it's bugging me.

Most patches were butt welded so there was no overlap or seam to worry about with those. On the pieces where there was an overlap, like welding the rear inner fender to the quarter panel, I would just get it as clean as possible before joining the pieces. I did spray weldable primer on a lot of the overlap welds but you're right that the weld burns away most of it. That's why I applied a coat of POR15 by hand to all of the seams and then a coat of seam sealer before applying more POR and then finally the Raptor liner.

Okay, that's been pretty much my plan. I've been covering any area which will be covered up such as metal spacers I put between the inner and outer body panels with weldable zinc primer. Once done it will all get etched and coated with POR and then seam sealer. Thanks

Mike, are you running an inertia switch, if so has it given you any trouble and how did you wire it up? thanks
