    there is absolutly no way i will use this fuel rail. fit testing and it all sucks.
    i wish it were not true but it is, its honestly a very good looking fuel rail.

    the return line fitting is in conflict with the coolant rail temp sensor.
    the supply line is pointing "into the upper intake.
    these two things above i would be able to work around if i was desparate but, when i felt back at the FPR, i said hell no. the one allen bolt would be impossible to remove , the angle of the FPR and one bolt would not be accessable for my son in the future.,, SCREW IT ALL.

    I will go with another fuel rail with the help of my pal Rocky!

    so off comes the purdy "different" fuel rail from some stock ford 4 wheeler we cant identify yet to another fuel rail.

    this one is purdy clean but i really want to have a shrader valve test port on the rail. neither of my fuel tank metal lines have a test port so i need to work on this.

    here is the one i will use, bonus is it will accept the CFI 3.8L FPR thats adjustable. We will install a vac operated one in the meantime and if chance wants an adjustable one, the solution will never be expensive. after all , there's always "dads garage" to supply parts.

    so to drill out a spot for a fuel presure test port....... i saw this done on another fuel rail i have so i get to it.
    i discovered that the metal block i am working on must be made of a material that is not on the periodic table.. yes i have good quality bits.

    i put a magnet near the drill area to catch all the stuff flying around.

    i tap the threads and in she goes.

    this is a very nice looking fuel rail , no blemishes at all, nice and prudy.

    humm,,
    it just clicked ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, wonder if any of you gents ever thought of this....

    add a fuel presure test port to both the supply and return lines. this way you can troubleshoot fuel delivery problems and it would either point to the regulator or the fuel pump back in the tank!!

    im gonna have to stare at this for a minute and see if i can actually do that.

    my 20th test port is on the fuel rail adaptor line, not actually on the fuel rail
