Unhappy fuel pressure trouble is it the cold??

fuel pressure keeps going down

Sorry for posting twice just trying to see if anyone has had this problem or knows why it is doing this.

my pressure was 52p @ idle and 43p @ wot so I changed my regulator spring to the longer blue one. Someone had done the bb mod so O took that out and put in the new spring and had the same pressure 52p and 43p so I put the bb back in with the new spring and was at 70p @ idle and 65p @ WOT just where I wanted it. Now every day it has come down a little at a time. The day after the mod it was at 68p @ idle the next day 65p @ idle and 58p @ WOT now today it is at 62-63p @ idle and 56-58p WOT WHAT GIVES!! I have no leaks. The fuel pump was replaced 2yr ago and also has a summit raceing pusher pump to give extra pressure and all works. Any help please. The only change is the weather has gotten colder.

Well then that sux even more because mine is going down. It seems to have settled at 62p idle and 56-58p at WOT I want it back at 70p at idle. I may have to buy a external fuel regulator and set it my self.

Well atleast its not dropping below 45.. and why do you want it at 70? I believe I've read it been told by a diesel tech that over 70 psi can blow the injector o rings? Don't know if its true or not tho

If it drops anymore, I'd be concerned. But it shouldn't. It's probably just settling to where your fuel pump likes it best.

I guess so . You would think it would be high with the new longer spring and a BB.
