FPR question with WVO conversion....
To add to my other questions threads.......On my 1996 powerstroke, I'm doing my efuel before my full conversion next month. I'm doing a DIY setup, ideas borrowed from lots of sources. 2 SEPARATE side by side systems, 2 pumps, 2 spin-on's, 2 FPR's. I want to use the stock Banjo for D2 input, with a check valve at the Banjo, then use the stock return outputs in the front of the heads for WVO input, with another check valve there. This way, no 3-way valves to ever leak fuel in between; I'll have a 2-way purge valve between the D2 return and the WVO input, so I can use my D2 return line pressure to purge out the FPHE and WVO pump. Both systems will have regulated returns for each, but I'm confused as to how to hook up the FPR's. Typically, the OBS efuel conversions use the stock banjo for fuel IN, and the lines on the front of the engine for OUT (return). People hook up the stock return lines to both sides of a bypass style (whatever brand you buy) 3-port fuel pressure regulator, then hook up the return line on the bottom of the FPR to the stock return line.
Can I use a 3-port FPR inline?? Sorry if this is a dumb question. There weren't any instructions with the regulator I bought--just diagrams for what size fittings, o-rings, etc.
