12v fuel pump

who sells the 12v fuel pump?
Is there a location that is preferred? From sedimentier the line run on top of frame mostly..
Would need some what protected spot!
This is row truck.
Are the fittings close to size of stock fuel lines?

Etc. etc.

So the routing is Tank --> Sedimenter --> 12V fuel pump, lift pump, spin-on fuel filter, IP, return line joins with injector spill over line --> Tank.

Part of your issue is some "genius" years ago decided it was a good idea to route the return line back to the older style sandwich filter.
This routing of the fuel return line recirculates trapped air back into the filter where it goes around again and again.

Fuel leak at injectors

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C59RT30..._Z61XxbWE1STHV

Mine's mounted under driver side box. Not in the box, but under the box next to the frame. Don't know if it's ideal but it seems out of the way enough. Some sort of weatherproofing would probably be wise.

The second set of fuel lines installed, they were a little better, #4 was probably the furthest off. It is off from #3 from the original set. Basically they all leak some except#3 which is dry.
Although the leakage does not appear to be going in a flow the fittings are just wet?
Have tightened each fitting quite well until the pull stops.

~There are a number available the cheapest is the small green one sold by most auto supply stores by "Mr Gasket".~

~side of the frame rail near the top as close to the sedimenter as possible.~

~Fittings are fittings, 5/16" (8mm) is the correct size.
Get rid of the nylon lines and replace with rubber.

Fuel lines

The new fittings connected to injector measures 17 mm the old original measure 15 mm.

Nylon lines you are referring to?

Injectors

Now on the third set of lines I removed the overflow lines & noticed the bodies of injectors were loose. So it ran okay the leakage appears to of come from injectors not so much the fittings something I was not looking at. Go figure.
You can see how well they bend the lines in India 3&4 are not close enough to use a clamp for vibration. 1&2 are too close.

injectors

Evidently the bodies of the injectors had loosened just enough & the washers on the return line need replacement. When the washers arrive I can determine if this is done & I can go back to 110 brakes.
