Fuel System - Continued

I made a bracket to hold the fuel pressure regulator out of 2.5mm thick stainless.  I left a side cut out in it to aid removal of the wiring loom where it passes through the bulkhead.  I then finished off the fuel hose fittings to ensure they fitted correctly from each fuel rail.

I then drilled a larger hole in the air inlet to fit the Inlet Air Temperature sensor.  A 16mm grommet was used.

Fuel System - Continued

I managed to make up the hoses for the fuel return from each of the fuel rails to the regulator.  These were made in -8 Hose with 180 degree connectors at the fuel rail, and 45 degree connectors at the regulator.

I plan to fabricate a bracket to mount the regulator to the chassis which I will do next......

Fuel System - Continued

Following my previous post (here) regarding the proposed changes to how the supply fuel hose runs, I have managed to address the issue.

I made a bracket using some stainless flat bar and bridged across the chassis to hold the fuel hose Y-Piece.  The chassis was tapped to accept M5 button heads, and a P-Clip was modified to make a saddle clamp to hold the hose connector.  I added a P-Clip onto the hose to provide a little more support.

I then cut 2 pieces of -8 Hose to link from the Y-Piece to each fuel rail.  This now gives enough clearance for the regulator and ECU loom.

I now need to fit the 180 degree hose connectors to the front of each fuel rail and make hoses to return back to the regulator at the bulkhead.  This should complete the front end of the fuel system, and I will require to get the hoses into the boot where the tank, filter and pumps will be.
