I got some of this thermo tec heat wrap.It says it repels 90% of the radiant heat..and I swapped the 90* fitting at the pass rear hose so the hose is away from the up pipe wich is much hotter than the dp.
I removed the oe fuel hosses and fittings. Im glad I am replacing them for additional reasons because the outer shielding was cracking so it was just a matter of time. heres the swapped front fittings on both sides. also I found my ebp tube and fitting were completly clogged up si I cleaned them also.
I FINALLY have all of the plumbing on the engine completly done. I remade the drivers hose 3 times before I was happy with it. I was able to run it up between the turbo pedestal and plenum and swap the 90* hose end for a 45* going into the 1/8 npt to -6 90* fitting in the drivers head...IF that makes any sence.
I put the compression to pipe to pushlock fittings on and its all sealed up. I am pretty happy with it all..but we will see how long that lasts.
I was struggling with how I was going to go from the 5/16 hose from the switcher valve and get to the 3/8 push-loc. I had planned just to do a barb to barb connection but I could not talk myself into that.
I came up with a reducer in the filter head 1/2" pipe to 1/4" npt with a ball valve and a barb. Now the oe hose will just come off the hard line and clamp on the barb. I have seen some systems with a valve to shut fuel off when changing filters. I dont think its probably a big deal but I will try it out.
special note..^^^^ thats my vise btw...its a very good vise..we ALL need a vise..
Aaron, I am wondering about the EBPV tube. I am 99% sure mine has been gutted so does that mean the tube still needs to be cleaned? I was looking under there this morning when lookin for boost leaks and saw that it was really dirty. Dangit that Efuel setup makes me jealous!
Tomorrow I plan on welding the pump/filter bracket on and finishing the last two connections. the factory hard line will get a compression to pipe to pushloc on it and the rubber hose goes on the barb.
next will come wiring. I tore down the fuel bowl harness apart. WHAT JUNK it is. its harder than wood pecker lips. I will be rewiring that mess and doing away with the oe connector on the pass side.
fuel pump wiring needs built. I have the switch that bill and others use and plenty of relays.
I think the pcm uses it for other functions also. AND with that fancy new monitor you should be able to see turbo drive pressure by the sensor I think byron.
Hmm, I'll have to check it tomorrow and see. It doesn't seem like one of the parameters I have seen, but I could be wrong. What did you have to do to get to that tube? Am I looking at removing the turbo and all the pedestal? Man I hope not.
Your getting a ton of progress with out me screwing up the situation! I hated not getting to come over yesterday to work with you, but the husband duty card fell on me hard! be careful with all the ice out there today!
Well, the bracket is welded to the frame and filters and pump are installed and plumbed. I got the oil pressure switch installed and need to get started on the wiring. I had to stop and do some cleaning on the shop. I really need to get the onan generator off my work bench so I pu t the oil pan and pickup back in. IF I dont work tomorrow because of the weather I may try to get it on the cart and the front axle torn down for the axle seals.
