Electric Fuel System

Well for the last few days I have been ordering parts for a electric fuel system conversion on my 97.

So far i have the following,

7.3l superduty electric pump

Aeromative 13109 regulator

Napa final filter part # 3528 ( 2 micron)

Napa filter base part # 4770

Standyne fuel manager pre- fuel/water separator part # 33641 (30 micron) If you order this, make sure you get the clear see through bowl. Extra $20

7/8 freeze plug

Also ordered fitting to connect to banjo bolt, then a reducer, then a 1/2 to 3/8 hose barb, so i can run 3/8 hose from it to fuel line. The benefit of this is, you don't have to run new lines to the heads. This will make it alot easier to do. I didn't want to have to remove the turbo to get the old lines out and put the new ones in.

Thats all i have so far and i will update once i order other fittings needed.

All parts should be here by mid next week, once i have them i will come up with a mounting bracket for the filter bases and pump.

I also didn't want to start buying the fittings for the filter bases until i have them and see what i need for sure.

Once i have everything, i will try to take as many pics as possible so you can do a setup like this.

I would also like to thank everyone that has shared there information on their own setups, it has helped a lot.

roughly 330 to 350.

Only things i have left to buy are relay, and fuse holder, maybe fuel heater( heard i dont need one).

I also need fittings and 3/8 and some 5/16 HPDR fuel line.

So once said and done i should have under 500 in my kit. ( hopefully)

I know i couldn't bring myself to spend that much on the truck. I already spent enough, but doing it yourself is harder, but at less than half the cost, it does make it worth your while.

not to be a party pooper....may ought to invest in another pump. In the case 1 fails.
I've got an mallory 5150 pump, suppling fuel on my set up. Its failed once, and left me strainded.
I'm currently looking to changing over to 2, 7.3SD pumps or possibly a 6.0 pump.

Actually man, i am going to leave the banjo fitting, bought some NPT fittings that will have a hose barb. This way i dont have to remove the lines off the back of the heads. The passenger side looks easy to get off, but the Driver's side will be a ***** with the turbo on. I will be removing the fuel bowl and such, but for now untill i get a new turbo the banjo will stay. I have seen a few people do it this way.

I will also post all the links later of where i got my stuff. And have taken a few pics so far, im going to try to put together somewhat of a write up.
