Exclamation Need help fast, am I out of luck???

Okay those of you who have seen my recent posts know the headache Im in and now its gotten worse!!!!! Ive got the new heads on and I noticed there is a fuel "port" at the rear of both heads as well as the front where the supply lines hook. What goes there??? I do not see or remember taking a return line off of the back on the old heads and I didnt know that there might have been an plug in the old ones that I would need to keep. SO am I screwed??? The old heads are at the dealer. Can I go to the local auto store and buy a bolt with a copper washer and plug the backs of the heads? My service manual is useless on this issue. Thanks guys and hopefully it wont be another week before I get her going again!
Caleb

If you go to the dealer where your old heads are, bring yourself a 6mm allen key to remove the fuel block-off plugs off the old heads.

You think maybe he could put an ITP rear crossover fuel line in place? It would help your injectors out as well.

That would work as well, as long as it is routed as far away from the exhaust as possible.

Thanks for the heads up! I just really hope they havent sent them back already.... I will call and go Monday. Also if you dont mind me asking do I have to replace the two power steering hoses because the orings are messed up, or are the orings available?
Thanks a bunch,
Caleb

If you mean the white teflon seals, yes they can be purchased separately.

Thanks a lot M-Chan I appreciate your answers. I guess Ive learned that you cant be in a rush to get things back together cuz thats when it all goes to hell. Last night I broke a oil cooler cover bolt and cant find the gasket(or a part number for the new one) that goes from the intake to the water pump assembly. I guess on the bright side two weekends for a rookie to pull the cab and do all that Im doing on top of work and school isnt too bad. I just really hope Ive done everything to get a lot of life out of this engine now.
Thanks again,
Caleb
