Exclamation HELP WITH ITP IN-TANK MOD

Help me I'm stuck! I'm trying to install the ITP in-tank mod and the instructions tell me to bleed the fuel system pressure through a schrader valve. I have an '03 and thought I didn't have the schrader. The shop manual does not give a good enough description of it's location for me to find. If I do have it does anybody know where it's at or if I really need to bleed the pressure down to disconnect my fuel tank lines? I'm stuck until I can figure this out. Do I really need to bleed the pressure?

I was able to figure it out. I would post my findings but it looks like nobody cares anyway.

On a positive note, the ITP in-tank modifications is well worth the money!

I do most of my posting at work too, but try to check a few times during the weekend.

Here's what I may or may not have posted on another site...

The mod is great! Fitment, parts quality and quantity were spot on. The engine is quieter now. I used to hear the rattle everywhere up front but now it's only coming from the bottom. The injectors don't sound nearly as angry now. I loved being the loudest engine in the parking lot, but if it will help my injectors last a little longer then the sacrifice will be worth it.

The only problem I ran into was that nothing had been disconnected in 5 1/2 years and 154K miles so saying that all the fittings were stubborn to remove would be a huge understatement! Also I don't know what Ford was thinking by putting a locking fuel fitting to the suction of the fuel pump. There is no room to put a line release tool in there to pop it off, you have to buy a new pump! So to facilitate the new fuel line I just carved off the old fuel line and double clamped the new line on. Other than that and my truck being stubborn (install took 9 hours total) everything went perfectly! I have been told that you can clip and remove the ring for the fitting and it will slide off. I didn't have the time to try it since I told my wife it was only going to take 5 hours to do.

Even though I don't notice any SOTP improvement I did notice that getting onto the freeway now (merging into traffic in Southern California can be tricky with over 20ft of truck) I leave a larger black cloud on the on-ramp than I remember.
