CFI fuel prob

Well, today was a great day. Not

So far, i believe that i have found *hopefully* the problem that has plagued the EA for such a long time.


I have replaced all sensors related to the overfuellling problem, ignition timed right, no error codes *I hope* any more except O2 sensor telling me it's too rich, no crap.!!!

But have the idea now of the fuel pressure regulator has crapped itself and dumping into the manifold as i have read before on this forum site. As i replaced the fuel pump a while a go and thought that it might have spiked it.
But as i rang a few Ford dealers in Melb, they told me they were expensive and would set me back ranging from $128 to $148 dollars. So rang dealer in Berwick as well and said that the regulators were "obselete"..Whoa, the other dealers had them in stock, so WTF!
Went to the dandy dealer on the way home and asked him for the CFI regulator, brought out what i believe was a MPFI, not the CFI. We got a talking and he showed me a picture of the CFI setup and pointed to him that there was a removable plate on the CFI body (right near the fuel inlet/outlet hose) with what i believe was the regulator. He stated "yes, it was, but now that's obselete". He said try other aftermarket places or carby shops for it. I tried Repco, but nothing there as well.

Is the CFI fuel pressure regulator that diaphragm in the throttle body near the fuel inlet/outlet? And how can Fuel, be dumped back into the throttle body? Is there a channel there bypassing?

Anyone shed light on this, as it seems i'll have to go to a wreckers yard and get a CFI body and find out what the craps all about.

But astounded that the diaphragm is not a serviceable part anymore and i thought the VK was OLD!!!! :sad:
