Found the leak

So I have been tearing down the fuel system yesterday and today. I still had the factory soft lines and o rings in the fuel bowl. I did the o rings from Guzzle and got banjo bolt gaskets from the dealer ($3.50 each). The banjo bolt took no effort to break loose.
I have some gaskets on order from an airplane supplier (88 pennies each)that match the ford gaskets but are made of copper/asbestos and are a little thicker (3/32")so I don't know if they will work.

I also found the doghouse gaskets blowing by so I pulled out the o ring kit and replaced them. I flipped the doghouse around and now starting my own ccv mod.


Sucking some oil


More pics to come

Can someone give me a quick run down on the flow of the fuel system? I know the supply to the pump and the tank return but don't understand the pump to fuel bowl back to pump pump to heads heads to fuel bowl set up.

Tank -> Top part of fuel pump -> filter bowl -> lower part of fuel pump -> heads -> regulator on fuel bowl -> tank.
