BB mod problems

I did the bb mod to the fuel regulator on my 99 stroke. I does idle better, but I keep blowing the gasket on the filter lid. I don't have a guage installed, so I don't know the exact pressure I'm running. Evidently it is to high. Has anyone else had this problem? I have pulled the bb out, just wondering if anyone knows any tricks to keep this from happening.

I thought the BB mod was just for the OBS trucks,and shims were for the SD trucks. Gauge would help out alot I would imagine, but I have heard of alot of guys leaking past the top seal. The fix was going to Napa and getting a fuel filter with the lid attached to the filter.
If you do that DONT throw away your old lid.

That's what I'm running, the lid with the filter attached. The original had blown off and sort of cross threaded itself. Broke it all up getting it off. Thought maybe the regulator just got stuck, put the lid with the filter on it and diesel kept blowing past the rubber gasket. Finally just removed the bb before I burned the truck down.lol

I am 99 percent sure the bb in the superduty is too much. Will damage things. Definately use a gauge to test at least. I hooked a temp gauge to the drain valve. I opened the valve and turned the key on. I thin spacerreal thin is more than enough. I bet the bb put you at 100 psi

lol Yeah I think your right, blow the lid off. I removed the bb and truck doing fine. I must have misread the thread and thought the bb would work on mine. The third time I blew the gasket, I went through a quarter tank in about 5 miles. That's an expensive lesson. bb came out after that one. Don't know how I didn't burn the truck down.lol
