?? Banjoe block ?? electric fuel pump conversion ?

Hi - does anyone have experience with this product?

Fuel Upgrade '94 -'97 Ford Powerstroke Banjoe Block - eBay (item 260856029586 end time Sep-27-11 15:29:32 PDT)

If for some reason that item/link is bad, it is called:

Fuel Upgrade '94 -'97 Ford Powerstroke Banjoe Block
Block to connect fuel lines eliminating mechanical pump

I just got done rebuilding my stock fuel bowl, lines and put in new stock pump, but can NOT get the banjo bolt to thread up.... i'm sick of it and am looking at this and wondering if it might be a 'way out'.

What is the simplest / easiest way to convert to electric pump? Can I still use the stock bowl/filter that I just redid? thanks.

That would be the easy way to omit the stock pump and retain the "wishbone" shaped line to the back of the heads. The stock OBS bowl only handles low pressure (5-10 psi) from the lift section of the mechanical pump and will leak/fail under the 65 psi system pressure. Swapping in a 99-03 fuel bowl will work, but would require replumbing of everything. Your best bet is a filter setup on the frame rail.

Honestly, it sucks. I speak from experience. I got one and tried it. I ran it for ONE day.

For the cost of it you can buy a "Y" fitting and make your own lines for cheaper than you can buy that thing.

I don't recommend them and wouldn't put one on a truck.

Can I get a picture from you if possible did you have any trouble with keeping the fitting from tweaking the lines when tightening it down?
