I just finished putting the truck alllll back together from replacing the STC fitting and some other modifications that are not related to the oil system.
It took ~1min to start, and it was not a real nasty start up. It took ~15 seconds once it got pressure, then the engine ran just fine once it did. I have a little y-pipe alignment leak but no biggy.
At the initial start I let the truck idle for ~2 min, turned it off, let it sit for ~15 seconds, re-start and it ran and started just fine, idle for ~2 min, reved it a few, then reved to red line, still good, I then turned it off.
I came back 5 min later to start it again and ti took ~10-15 seconds to start back up....
I did my best to align the updated one pice stc fitting:
Ford Part# 4C3Z-9B246-E
International Part# 1879930c91
But what I did was not good enough. I am guessing it is the fitting alignment and not the pump install....????
On the edge insight the inj pw at idle was normal (~1000psi +/-100), like it was before I worked on the truck.
What can I do to do a better job of aligning the STC fitting on the pump?
