Need help quick with FPR kit part??

I have my truck all torn apart and after taking the old Fuel Pressure Regulator kit apart there is a piece in the NEW kit that wasnt in the old one that I took off.

Please let me know what this is and if it is even needed since it was not there before. I need to get this thing back together tonight.

Thanks

That goes into the filter housing itself, where the fuel pressure regulator sits. I'm assuming you have the ford pressure regulator kit, 3c3z-9t517-ag? It comes with a little picture diagram that should have been in the bag.

Yes that is the kit I have and it did come with the diagram. The diagram shows it right behind the brass spring holder...sandwiched in between the brass holder and the actual fuel bowl..

There wasn't want on there when I took it off and it doesnt even look like it will fit. Any pictures would be greatly appreciated.

Well I had an old 03 fuel filter housing sitting here that I just took apart and it had that black piece in the filter housing. If yours doesn't have it then I'd have to assume the later filter housings don't use it. Does that brass piece fit in there ok?

I don't have any other filter housings off newer trucks around or I'd look at one.....

If the brass piece looks the same I'd just reassemble it. Really the only part that's upgraded is the spring itself. It's just a harder spring.

The brass piece fits in perfectly just as the old one came out. I was wondering the same thing if the newer ones don't have it. If it goes where I am thinking(between the brass piece and the fuel bowl) then there is no way it will fit. It prevents the new housing from going on all the way

Well the 03 filter housing definitely had the black plastic piece, but if there's no way yours did then I wouldn't sweat it. As long as the brass piece is the same as the one that came out of yours I'd slap it back together and let it eat!

Just did mine two weeks ago and same thing. If you look at your old pieces you'll notice that that same shape is cast right into the housing so for mine it was a spare part.

That sucks. What's causing the truck to eat alternators?

Yeah I have no idea. This is the second one in like 10k miles. This last one was covered under warranty but they threw a reman on. I hate when the use reman parts instead of new. Can they find out why they keep going? I'm gonna have them replace it this last time under warranty just so I can get back on the road and then I'm ordering one of the heavy duty high output large case 6g alternators.
