Ok I've gotten the 3 easy ones done, now I'm trying to do the rear drivers side fuel port.
My turbo is removed, and just sitting in there so I can check clearances for other items.
What is causing problems is the up pipes. I don't think there is enough clearance to get a -6 an fitting screwed down onto my adapter. So I'm guessing I need to remove the up pipe and put a 90* fitting in?

I don't feel ambitious enough to remove my up pipes, I've already tore half my engine bay apart.

So does any one have some bright ideas for me please? :please:

I'm trying to get my electric regulated return up and running.

Could you use a 90* or 45* NPT fitting, then your AN adaptor? My H2E turbo and NPT brass setup is different, but it may give give you some ideas.

There is no room to twist a 90, I had to cut the original one out.

I might could squeeze a 45, I look into that. Thanks for the brainstorm

How much of the top is clear?

I've pulled the turbo and all the accessories off the front (alt, ac, vac pump) as well as removed the obvious fuel bowl and pump.

The only thing in my way is the up pipe "collector?" and I found a solution for that last night in bed, :thumb:

I've been all up and down the web with this build, I've got almost $300 in fittings alone.

Sometimes if you don't know what something is called, you can never find it.

Terminology is paramount :thumb:

You do? Sweet, you should fill me in or point me towards a thread about it. I would be interested in seeing how it's set up.

And no, I don't pay a dime for my oil.
It would stink to pay for it.

I don't have one on it since hes north of me I make it send it to him and he adds his stuff and then i leaves the state i've never asked him what he adds. I just know what my plans are and what he added. ( I'm redoing a used kit that came off a customers wrecked truck i bought back.) He refines it i thinkj and just when its at the right temp switches from Diesel to oil/fuel. I'm not big on the Bio fuel or veggie oil. I can see if he wants to talk to you about his setup. HE won't even tell me what he does put might be able to give you some advise.

So back to the fitting you mentioned, the an portion swivels independently of the npt portion?

So I can hold the an still, and thread the npt down into the head right?
