Tonight I got off work about 3 pm and grabbed a few Taco Bell Burritos a case of Pepsi and decided to fix some Fuel lines so I can get this girl started. It wasn't the quick fix I wanted it to be. The 95 has the fuel rail delivery and return on the passenger side. The F150 where I got my fuel rail for this build has it on the drivers side. So I went out and grabbed some nylon line and some connectors that would get them up on the firewall and away from the engine. NOPE. I made all of the connections and got the lines where my OCD would not be too picky about them and something told me that they were not good. Well I was right, I turned the key on and gas was just pouring out from the pressure line at every connections. I used the doorman quick connects because everyone told me that they were good.
I am not a fan of them. So I took them out and tried to use barbs inside the nylon. Barbs were great, the nylon sucked ass though. IN the end, I took the two factory quick connects and gutted the nylon off of them, got some fuel line hose from AZ and some hose clamps. Now, to connect these, I have to take off the Upper Intake and slide it to the side to slip the fuel lines into place. Got it all connected, Got the Intake back in place and double checked all of my electrical.
Turned the key and NOTHING!!!!!! All I could think of was me posting the word "Nothing" and then the multitude of replies directing me to the "No Crank" Checklist.
I was not happy. I took a breath and decided to get out and see if any fuel was dumping out of the lines before I went any further. No fuel smell on the drivers side, none on the passenger side. No fuel on my fingers when I touched everything. That is when my eyes went to the battery and my "Battery Cut Off" switch. Which was in the damn OFF position. Turned it to on, fuel pump engaged, I jumped inside and gave her a try.
30 seconds of "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can" and ROAR....... No Backfire!!!! WOOOOT
NOW, you can see the dust on my windshield? That is when a MORON don't clean up the kitty litter that was used to soak up the fluids that ended up on the floor during the removal of the 95 engine. I had to stop because the dust and some exhaust quickly took the garage over and its damn 30 degrees outside here.
Tomorrow I will burp her and get her outside to breathe.
After I ensure that I am good, I will then take her apart and make the wire harness look pretty, right now, wires are everywhere as you can see.
