Thumbs up 94.5 - 97 Fuel Accumulator

I have this fuel accumulator. I was told, "While your in there" doing the fuel pump. Turns out, My truck doesn't even have one. The Ford dealer wont take it back. As it stands, I am out 130$.

I am in Southern California, If your local, from San Diego to South LA or Temecula to Riverside, I will trade it out for a new NAPA manual lift pump, they run around 90$.

Saves you 40$ and minimizes my loss. Win/Win.
If your in another state & wanna mail me the pump.
As soon as I get it, I'll mail the accumulator.

Just for info: The accumulator, or pulse dampener, is only found on the late 96 and 1997 California model trucks running the split-shot injectors. Cheers!

As mentioned they are only for Cali models. Here you are: look here: Cali fuel pump replacement - Page 2 - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

It decreases the pulses of the fuel pump, that its name Dampener.

I dont know exactly but maybe for Cali regulations, and they have AB code injectors and different fuel pump.

A and AA injectors came in the '94-'97 non-california trucks. They are all 90cc injectors and are single shots.

AB injectors came in the '97 cali, and all early '99 trucks. They are split shot injectors meaning they fire a small pilot shot before the main shot. These injectors flow 130-135cc of fuel.

Thought it was 120cc split shots, some later 96's are Cali models too, and I've still never seen that part on my truck

The accumulator dampens the pulses from the fuel pump to make a smooth constant fuel flow, its needed on the split shot injectors because of surging the pulses would cause under load.
