e fuel Conversion question

I just got a 96 f350 that I absolutely love but had a bunch of fuel leaks to deal with. I decided since I wanted to modify it that I would might as well do the e fuel conversion. I ordered one from iratediesel and I really like how it's put together. Only problem is that there were absolutely no instructions and the one's on the website were seriously lacking any sort of detail. I went ahead and removed the fuel bowl and fuel pump. By following other conversions done by others I have been able to see what's what, but my only question it's I have two fuel lines that I have no idea where they are supposed to go. They run side by side along the front of the driver side head and go down between the ac compressor and the hpop reservoir and down the side of the motor. Any help is greatly appreciated guys!

i believe you are talking about the supply and return from the tanks. one supplies fuel to the heads. the other takes the fuel from the FPR back to the tank.

i don't know how the Irate system is set up, but that's what i think your are talking about

yeah I was kind of disappointed in Irates support after the sale, their instructions suck.
I have their kit on my truck but it definitely took some figuring out.

Thanks sam, by the way can u please tell me how u got the driver side fitting on because I have been ripping my hair trying to figure out how. I took off the turbo but was not able to take off the pedestal because the passenger bolt was rounded out and the driver side one I totally cannot see, and I can't take off the collector because of the pedestal being the way and I can't loosen the up pipes because those bolts are rounded out as well. Everytime I tighten the fitting it just keeps banging the collector flange so now I'm stuck and frustrated as hell .

Try to get the pedestal off and that should help. The back driver side bolt is located somewhat in line with the bottom collector. You will need either a swivel socket or a swivel joint (no socket on the end). Good luck

Well I ended up loosening up the up pipes to push the collector back enough to turn the rear driver side fitting. The up pipes were a real pain in the *** the all bolts were rounded on the top side of the up pipes where they connect to the exhaust manifold. I ended up just tacking them so I could loosen the nuts from under the truck. Now the only one I have left to do is the front driver side head one. It looks like I might have to move the compressor and bracket to get to it. I decided I'll just wait another day because my work schedule right now is 13 days straight and 1 off so I rather rest and wait another day. Thanks for any tips you guys have because I'm open to anything.

to get to the drivers side front, you should unbolt the accessory bracket 4 11/16 bolts. take the belt off pull the whole assemble out of your way.
