plastic check ball

i lost fuel pressure on my truck . putting 2nd fuel pump in . only 3,000 mi. on pump . i took my fuel bowl off to clean . i took the fpr off to clean the screen and pulled the plastic and sreen out of the housing . put it back together , cleaning up my bench , i found a little white plastic check ball . i see there is one in the screen and o-ring kit online . my question is , where does it go ? does it go behind the plastic piece with the screen ? i did not see where it came from when i took it apart .

The check ball usually doesn't come in the "orifice vent kits" available online (even though the "usual" picture shows it). The ball will go behind the screen on the FPR body side. Cheers!

Try ebay, the various PSD forums, etc. There are a lot of folks that have gone to e-fuel and may have their old bowl in the parts bin. You could buy one from Ford, but the pricing is prohibitive (it's actually cheaper to just buy the Fuel Filter Bowl assembly which will have the regulator on it). If you went the new route, check with Tousley Ford Parts online as they are most likely much cheaper than you local dealer (unless they actually give you a break). Cheers!
