Yes you need to do the reg for dead end rails
Factory one works great until you need a lot of fuel
You can remove the quick connectors and just replace with fuel line

They are talking about JNB fuel system at ITPdiesel.com. It looks like a good system, I've been considering it myself. Diesel Innovations also sells a nice system. More fuel http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/grin.gif

The latest ITP system has a no cut return line also Bob at dieselsite is comming out with a new system soon. Has anyone seen the thread at Dieselsite reguarding quick disconnect lines, appears rounded over part of line can create aireation and fuel flow restriction. Before and after pictures showing reaming out end of fuel line may remove around 1/4 restriction causing a venturi effect.

I think my next mod is to change the torque converter and upgrade the transmission, this pushes the fuel system back abit. PSDADDICTED, I'd be very interested in your feedback once you go ahead with the fuel system upgrade. Take care http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/grin.gif

I would talk to Bob Riley at dieselsitetoo.com
He sold me a Dahl fuel filter kit and put the intank/prepump mod parts together for me.

He does not like the compression fitting kits that are sold. Overtime fuel movement in the tank will cause the compression fittings to loosen. He does not advertise his in tank mods because he can't justify selling $5.00 worth of parts to his customers.

Bob puts together a system of fuel hose and a small pickup tube which seems bullet proof. I think he charged me about $5 for parts and some instructions on the install.

As far as results:
Maybe a bit quieter and smoother
No change in fuel mileage
I have a pre pump water seperating fuel filter and a system that will not induce air.

It took me about 3-4 hrs to do the job although I had to drop a 55 gal aero tank. A stock tank would be much easier.

Good Luck!
Chris

Big Fish,

I went with the ITP fuel package, return and feed lines with areomotive regulator and tank mod. Also harpooned tank which allows about another 5-6 gallons on fill up. System works great and was easy install, Dennis has great instructions. I have a Air Dog fuel/air filter on order.
Let me know about your trans upgrade.

I'm glad you like your fuel system upgrades. I would like to do mine soon. For the trans and torque converter, I went to John Wood's shop (club member, owner of black beauty) in Holtville, CA. He's a nice guy, and does excellent work. The trans works great, far superior to stock.Take care, Bryan http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/grin.gif
