Installed the blue spring today

It only took me about 30 min total, which I think was pretty good since I have never worked on a 6.0 before.

I had been having a long crank issue and ever since I replaced the spring (3 starts now) the long crank issue has not occured. It is lighting off in about 1-2 sec every time now.

Does anyone have any experience with the fuel pressure regulator causing long crank / inconsistent crank time issues?

Previous long starts might be related to the fuel pressure bleeding off. Since your rebuild fixed the issue seems logical it's gone.

I will keep an eye on it and see if it was a figment of my imagination.

Hmm.. I'm having long crank times. 3 seconds is not unheard of. This spring replacement was coming up on my list anyways, after i got all the major things fixed. Will have to see if it fixes it for me too.

Just to be clear I did not replace the spring hoping it would fix the issue. I don't have a fuel pressure gauge and I wanted the piece of mind on fuel pressure so I swapped it out.

I think it might be an oil issue, maybe bad check valves in the stand pipes or STC fitting, yesterday was really warm and it fired right up but I don't have a monitor yet so I don't know what the FICM is doing. I will be getting a monitor in the next month or so, I gotta wait on my bonus to come in so I can afford some stuff.

Not having a monitor really makes me feel like I am in the dark.

Did you pick it up from the Ford stealership? I hear International sells them half as cheap.

I got the International one off of Ebay for $38 shipped. It did not come with the new housing, but really why would you need to replace that.

Part # 1P 1854267C94. If you are going to get it from the International Dealer do not mention Ford, you have to tell them it is for the International engine VT365.

Part number 6E7Z-9C165-B is a bit cheaper than the 3C3Z-9T517-AG part number, since it does not come with a new fuel pressure regulator cover (which you should not need).

EDIT: which is the Ford part for the kit International sells.....and will run you right in the $39 ballpark.
