Need some help

I was doing the erg cooler and oil cooler from bulletproof and i got everything back together and now it wont start. The first time i cranked it, it acted like it was going to go and then just cranked.

Batteries are now on the charger so i cant do anything.

The only thing odd i ran into was i found a spring on the ground. ive seen those upgraded springs for the fuel bowl so i figured thats where it went
so i checked the fuel bowl and it was about 1/2 full, not sure if thats right or not

I hope its something simple

Well if there is a spring sitting on the ground and that spring is supposed to be in the F/P regulator then you will most likely have a problem starting. I know this is a stupid question..but...is everything plugged back in properly? Did you double check every connection before continuing? I only ask because many times on a big job on a piece of machinery it almost always adds up to being a loose connection or a forgotten plug that causes **** not to start, for me anyways lol. Just keep it simple and remember what an engine needs to start, fuel + fuel pressure, spark, air,....and engine management lol, and go from there.
Hope this can help

I made an effort to re-check everything while i was putting it back together so im fairly certain everything is plugged back in.

I tried cranking it over again and its just not getting any fuel.

After looking through some threads about upgrading to the blue spring upgrade, it appears that im missing that screen/o-ring looking thing that the spring sits in.

Im going to call ford and see about getting another stock or blue spring kit and see where that gets me

Hopefully, it ends up being simple like the fuel pressure spring. If you have the option, get the blue FPR spring kit.

picked up the new blue spring fuel regulator kit/new fuel filter today and still nothing. I looked at every plug i could see with out tearing everything back out and they are all plugged in.

It will crank until the batteries run out and doesn't even think/try to fire.

ive got a sct programmer for my other truck and hooked it up and its not showing any codes.

So what im i missing here


BTW it ran great before i took everything apart(just blew coolant out the exhaust)

It is going to take quite a bit of cranking to get oil running through the new cooler and the rest of the system. When you crank it over is you oil pressure gauge showing you have oil pressure?

I had to crank on mine for quite a while before I got any oil pressure on mine. I had the FICM disabled so it wouldn't start until the oil pressure came up.

I dont have any real gauges but i will take a look and see if the factory one is moving.

How long are we talking? I tried like 4-5 times(15-20 seconds each) last night and twice today before i gave up.

Way more than that. Stick with under 30 second bursts of cranking with a minute between to cool the starter, but it takes a while to prime everything.

Did you prime the oil cooler and reservoir under the oil cooler block? If not, it will probably take a considerable about of time to prime by themselves
