Fuel pump conversion (no fuel pressure) 1997 7.3L F350

Ok...... super frustrated with this fuel pump delete. Have removed and plugged the manual fuel pump. Removed the bango bolt and just put a “T” fitting in place.

Had a small fuel pump on the side rail.... but didn’t read the specs. It only produced about 5 psi. Barely enough to keep it at idle.

We now have the bosch style pump installed. No fuel flow. No fuel pressure . We pulled the inline pump back off and tried to fill with diesel still no fuel flow. I turned it around backwards and forwards and still nothing.

This seems pretty straight forward, I have so idea what I’m doing wrong.

Did you delete the filter housing also?

No, we haven’t deleted the fuel bowl yet. We were wanting to upgrade one piece at a time, to understand systems a little better, and we are starting a hot shot company, so.... we are on a budget. Both my fathers and my fuel pump have gone down at the same time. We decided this would be the time to upgrade opposed to installing the old mechanical.

With E fuel you need to delete the stock filter housing, it won't handle the higher pressure of E fuel and you will blow the lid off.
