DIY regulated return

I've searched and couldn't find what I wanted, but does anybody have a list of every part I need to make a reg. return? It seems pretty simple and looks like it could be made for 1/4 - 1/2 the price of a vendors kit. Not looking to replace every fuel line, just open the back of the heads and delete the fuel bowl. Thanks

Re: DIY regulated return

I did my searching back ago to find the only hang up was the OEM regulator block. I figured at that point I was 1/2 the "retail" cost of an RR.

What parts do you need??

Re: DIY regulated return

I'm just looking for part numbers for fittings, braided line, regulator, etc. Like I said I'm just looking to open the heads and possibly delete the fuel bowl due to that regulator block. The guy on here named Miller says every kit he's seen on trucks bypassed the regulator and just cut the entire fuel bowl off for more room in the bay. He said he's never seen a kit with that regulator block. Maybe he'll chime in.

Re: DIY regulated return

You do not want to delete the top filter, unless you install a 2 micron or better filter!!

Re: DIY regulated return

Some kits have custom pieces made for the return side of the OEM stuff. Some just feed the heads from both sides. If you need parts suggestions try using the search function.

Re: DIY regulated return

I've been there and done that, the only thing I could find were pictures of installs. I wanted a list of parts to make a regulated return to plum into my OEM stuff, and like I said the regulator block would be the only issue, but I've been told people completely bypass the fuel bowl because of that. And yes, that piece only comes in driven diesels kit, sinister, etc.

Re: DIY regulated return

Jeg's and Summit should have most of what you are looking for in parts. The diesel rated fuel line was the most difficult for me to find. I used Google and finally found the right places and parts. In the end you need to decide if using the block off is worth it or just feed them from the front and rear with a solid unit providing the right pressure.

Re: DIY regulated return

On my current build, I am upping the line size, using one fuel bowl port to feed the front of the heads and the second fuel port to feed the back of the heads. I'm in California and you must smog every 2 years. Modification on the fuel system is not allowed, so I have to do a nice, clean job to get it past the smog techs.
