Custom fuelab system

Hey guys just ordered a fuelab pump, I got a few questions.

I have a regulated return and 5/8 pickup tube. I want to run 5/8 line to pump and 1/2 to the motor with a 3/8 return all the way to the tank. I would like to keep my fuel bowl if I can hold pressure with it on this set up feeding 190/75s

Does anyone know what fitting I would need? I don't have a clue what size the fitting is where I would tie into the fuel bowl. I also don't know what size the fittings the return from the bowl takes, the pump or the filler heads?

Any help is much appreciated, I still need to order the filter heads, filters, hose, fitting, and electrical components. Let me know how you built your system if your using a stand alone pump! Thanks!

I can't remember all of the specifics, but I think the fitting to the fuel bowl is a banjo bolt. I used a banjo bolt to -8AN fitting for that... but I can't remember how big my lines were. I used Earls Performance fittings on just about everything. I'll dig up my specs and send you what I got.

I'm running a sump, to an AD150, to a fuelab 41402, to the fuel bowl, and finally out thru a Driven Diesel RR. My fuel system was planned out by Nate (Windrunner). I like the way it came out. It's definitely enough to feed my 190s.

Mine goes from a sump to 10an ---> water separator --> Fuelab --> fuel filter --> 8an to motor --> Y block --> 6an --> 90 fittings on front of heads --> 90 fittings back of heads --> to fuel pressure regulator --> back to tank.

I have the pump and filters mounted on the inside of the frame on a bracket I built.

Haha I would hope so, I heard a 41401 is enough to feed 190s alone

41401 is big enough for 400cc injectors. Lol

Actually, I was looking for a shut off valve like that. What size is it and do you have a part number?

I had to get pretty creative to fit everything between the fuel tank and transfer case. There's not much room on a short bed. The valve is a JFW 3/4" stainless I got from a local hydraulic shop. I used a 3/4 NPT to 10an JIC fitting to connect it to the filter base. They have the same thread as a ORB fitting so I just installed a O ring on the JIC fitting. IDK if you can see in the pic but the 10an hose from the sump runs through one of the holes in front of the fuel tank. In the front I had to use a 10 AN ORB to 8AN 45 to clear the transfer case.
Overall I'm happy with it, the cross member protects the filter. I would like to make a bracket to protect the water separator.
