Electric Fuel on OBS

I have read the article in the tech files, but I was wondering if anybody else could anything? I'm trying to get parts rounded up, Does anybody have part #s for the filters and bases preferably napa or wix numbers? Anybody have an idea of how much of what sizes of hose they used? Anybody have a list of fittings used? What is the push on stuff talked about in the article? What are the fittings needed for on the regulator? Any other options for plugging the mechanical pump hole? What is the fitting needed to go on the banjo bolt that would go into the machanical pump and go to 3/8" hose barb?

Anybody use a different filter base then the Wix 24770? Do you need a dual inlet/outlet base? Anybody use a different primary setup?

you can do pretty much anything you want, but the 4770 bases seem to be the standard with a pre filter/water separator and a post pump filter at about 2 microns. then upto the heads using the banjo bolt or with new lines run to the back of the heads, then into some kind of regulator and back to the return line.

this is the fitting for the banjo bolt and where i bought mine

What are the different options for plugging the hole in the valley? How much is Barricade a foot?

Is there a reason not to use steel line and compression fittings? What for ends are on the stainless line that you use?
