This is Part 4 of a model-specific four-part series about how to install a FASS Platinum fuel system.

Please find the links to Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 here.

Step 4: Install fuel line.
Only use sealant on threads installed into pump assembly. Hose clamps are not recommended for push lock fittings, as they will hold up to 300psi. Also, use oil on fittings and inside fuel line when installing Push-Lok fittings.

Route suction line to "T" port. Cut FL-1001 to length. Insert PL-1002 using oil. Attach to 10-299 in "T" port. Torque to 18 ft./lbs.

Route fuel line from the return manifold to the "R" port of the FASS. Cut to needed length, insert PL-1002 using oil, and connect return line to the "R" port. Torque to 18 ft./lbs. Insert PL-1002 into remaining fuel line using oil. Connect fuel line to "E" port. Torque to 18 ft./lbs. Route fuel line to factory lift pump.
If you have a 1999-2002 7.3L, remove inlet fuel line to factory fuel pump. Route fuel line from "E" port of the FASS system to inlet of factory fuel pump. Cut to length. Slide clamp and fuel line over the inlet of the factory fuel pump. Tighten.

If you have a 2003-2004 with 6.0L Powerstroke, using a 3/8" hose clamp, install the QD-1001 into the fuel line. Oil O-rings inside Quick Disconnect.
Pinch in tabs of the inlet fuel line fitting and remove the inlet fuel line from the factory lift pump. Slide QD-1001 onto inlet fuel port of factory lift until a click is heard.

  1. This does not match with FASS installation manual. The fuel return line (from engine) is not supposed to enter into the pump. This burns out the pump. Factory return line from engine goes into the tank without modification. The return "R" from FASS system is supposed to enter the fuel tank.
