200tdi fuel return advice.
I'm hooking up my 200tdi to a TD5 fuel tank. I was told you can use it, minus the fuel pump by using the 2 right hand hookups on the late model sender/pump, turns out this was incorrect. The pickup line works fine, engine fired right up, but the return seems to have some sort of check valve that does let it flow back into the tank. Drips everywhere. Confirmed by Mo from the UK who had the same problem.
My question is, is there any reason I can't just go right into the fuel filter like the earlier 2.5td did?
I have a space on the bulhead fuel filter that will take another inward source.
