#8 cylinder fuel dead-head fix

Does anyone know what the fix is to keep the #8 cylinder from being on the end of the fuel line? Understand there is a fix..is it doable for a capable mechanic..or does it require specialized Ford tools, etc? Understand it prolongs the life of the engine and helps with mileage.

what he said. I couldn't believe how much quieter my engine was after the regulated return/crossover/removing the LL8 injector.

So this is all you need to install a regulated return system. This may be something I might do someday.

When doing the RR install, follow the instructions. If you think you are a bad *** and don't need to remove/ move the alternator and condenser it will take up a lot more time.

I think it took me 6 hours, when I honestly think I could do it in 2 if I would have followed the instructions.
