The BPD caps donít come with their own o ring, as the o rings come with the OEM fuel filters themselves.

Just pre fitting the cap to see if I required a 90 or 45 degree fitting to put pressure sensor on. That is as far as the BPD would go in and was basically at a point of having to force it to go any further and I've learned if something has to be forced you are gonna break/damage something.

Original Ford cap threads are tapered to a point on end of threads. Have ordered Russel fittings/hose from local parts store and going to mount remote off of test fitting port. Drowning my sorrows with a beer.

Thanks for the feedback - appreciated.

Most reliable spot for fuel pressure readings would be off that test port on the housing anyways.

Nice! A 90 degree 1/8Ē male to 1/8Ē female NPT fitting would work well with that fuel filter cap! Just a suggestion. Those electronic senders are always so bulky kinda a PITA.

repalmer I didn't buy it, but picked up a console from an Ex today. Mainly for the front cup holder, I swapped the one from mine for the cubby when I sold my 2000 and have been kicking myself ever since. This one has the rear cup holders so that will be nice on road trips
