BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION (Continued)
BEFORE BEGINNING: Someone who has a basic knowledge of automobile repair and modification and is familiar with and comfortable with working
on their vehicle can accomplish the mechanical installation of this kit using common tools and procedures. However, this kit is designed to allow you
to custom fit the fuel lines to your application, and will require that you cut hoses to fit and drill holes for Fuel Pressure Regulator mounting. If you do
not feel comfortable with any of the steps listed below, please consult a qualified professional installer. Make sure to read the instructions provided
with the supplied fuel rail and fuel pressure regulator. These will be referenced throughout this instruction sheet.
AFTER INSTALLATION, BEFORE STARTING THE VEHICLE: ALWAYS make sure to check for any leaks BEFORE starting the vehicle. Reconnect the
battery and turn the ignition key to the “on” position. This will activate the fuel pump and pressurize the fuel system. If any leaks are present, turn
the ignition “off”, disconnect the battery, and make the necessary corrections before continuing.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
UNDERHOOD DISASSEMBLY AND FUEL RAIL INSTALLATION
1.
Make sure the vehicle is on level ground, and the gear selector is in
“Park” or in 1st gear. Set the parking brake or chock the wheels.
2.
Disconnect the battery negative terminal (See note on page 1
regarding Honda/Acura security protected audio systems).
3.
Thoroughly clean the area surrounding the fuel injectors and the fuel
rail. This will prevent debris from entering the fuel system or the
intake manifold upon fuel rail removal.
4.
Relieve any residual fuel pressure in the fuel system. Remove the
fuel filler cap, then relieve fuel pressure by loosening the banjo bolt
connecting the fuel line to the fuel filter. Place a shop towel or rag
over the wrench while loosening the banjo to soak up any fuel spray
(See Fig. 1). When loosening or tightening the banjo bolt on the
fuel filter can, use a 19mm wrench on the hex of the fuel filter can
to counteract the torque of loosening or tightening the banjo bolt.
This will prevent the fuel filter can and bracket from being
improperly loaded during loosening or tightening at the banjo bolt.
If your vehicle has a special banjo bolt at the fuel filter, which has a
service bolt in the top of the banjo bolt, use a box end wrench to
loosen the service bolt at the fuel filter while holding the banjo bolt
with another wrench. Keep the banjo or service bolt loose until all
pressure is relieved.
7.
Disconnect the wiring harness from the fuel injectors and from the
fuel rail. If your vehicle is equipped with a purge valve, disconnect
the wiring from the purge valve.
8.
Remove the vacuum line from the factory fuel pressure regulator.
Refer to the instructions supplied with the 4796 fuel rail, and remove
the fuel rail, factory fuel pressure regulator, supply line, and return
line from the vehicle as one assembly. Use care when separating
the fuel rail from the fuel injectors.
9.
Install the supplied -8AN to -6AN Adapter Fittings (with o-rings) into
the fuel rail using a bit of o-ring lube on the o-rings. Install the 1/8
NPT pipe plugs (supplied with fuel rail) if the gauge ports are not
being used (see fuel rail instructions).
10. Inspect the injectors and transfer them to the new fuel rail as
described in the fuel rail instructions.
11. Install the fuel rail / injector assembly on the intake manifold as
shown in the fuel rail instructions.

installed in the return port of the regulator. Install the vacuum fitting
supplied with the regulator in the port on the top half of the
regulator. Install the pressure adjusting screw and jam nut at the
top of the regulator. See the instructions provided with the regulator
for more information.
Install the factory fuel pressure regulator vacuum line onto the fitting
on the fuel pressure regulator. You may need to replace or extend
this line, depending on where you are mounting the regulator.
FUEL TANK PREPARATION AND FUEL PUMP INSTALLATION:
WARNING: PROCEDURES IN THIS SECTION WILL REQUIRE
THE VEHICLE TO BE RAISED ON JACKSTANDS OR A LIFT.
WHEN RAISING A VEHICLE, MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE IS ON
LEVEL GROUND AND SUPPORTED SECURELY BY JACKSTANDS. NEVER WORK UNDER A VEHICLE THAT IS
SUPPORTED BY A JACK ONLY!
1.
Determine a location in the engine compartment to mount the fuel
pressure regulator. Make sure it is in a location that will provide
clearance to route the -4AN return line to the regulator, and that you
will be able to easily connect a length of -6AN hose between the fuel
rail and the regulator. We chose a location on the firewall.
Fuel Tank Removal:
A.
Remove the rear seat cushion to provide access to the top
of the fuel tank and fuel pump access panel.
B.
Clean any dirt and debris away from the area and remove
the fuel pump access panel (See Fig. 5).
To mount the regulator in this location you will need to remove the
cowl cover (See Fig 3).
Figure 5 - Fuel Pump Access Cover Removed
C.
Disconnect the electrical connectors from the top of the
fuel level sender and fuel pump assembly (See Fig. 5).

Fuel Pump Assembly Removal:
A.
Thoroughly clean all dirt and debris from the top of the fuel
tank. Clean out any dirt from around the fuel pump
assembly and retaining nuts. This must be done to
prevent dirt or foreign material from falling into the fuel
tank upon removal of the fuel pump assembly.
B.
Remove the fuel pump assembly mounting nuts and
carefully remove the assembly from the fuel tank.
C.
Set fuel pump assembly aside.
Fuel Pump Replacement:
A.
The electrical connections from the pump assembly to the
pump itself, may attach in one of two ways. There may be
a snap fit, plug type connector, or there may be ring
terminals attached to the pump with screws and nuts.
Disconnect the electrical connections from the pump; be
sure to note the polarity of the wires.
B.
Many vehicle pump supports have a L-shaped bracket
that is attached to the pump support with a screw and a
lockwasher. Loosening the screw and removing the pump
support allows the fuel hose to be removed from the pump
body, and for the pump to be removed from the bracket
easily. If the pump support and L-shaped bracket are
separate, remove the screw, and remove the pump
support, pump, fuel hose, and fuel clamps from the
bracket (See Fig. 9). If they are not separate, cut the fuel
hose and remove the clamps, fuel hose pieces, and fuel
pump from the pump support.

the factory fuel filter if it has not been previously removed.
In our installation, we chose to mount the fuel filter on the
firewall in-line with the original fuel line path to the factory
fuel filter. You may chose a different location for your
particular application. When the location has been
determined, mount the fuel filter to the chassis, using the
hardware provided.
Figure 12 - EFI Adapter Fitting
FUEL LINE ROUTE PREPARATION:
1.
Determine the best route for your application. In our installation, we
used the factory fuel line routing. To do so, we removed the factory
fuel line cover and removed the factory supply and return hard lines
(See Fig. 13).

Brochure #63-641560
FUEL LINE AND HOSE END PREPARATION:
1.
Measure the -6AN Proflex hose and determine the lengths needed
to reach from the fuel pump to the fuel filter, the fuel filter to the fuel
rail, and from the fuel rail to the fuel pressure regulator. Mark the
locations to be cut and wrap the hose tightly with masking or
electrical tape at these points. Make sure to use enough hose to
prevent the possibility of the hose kinking after assembly.
2.
Determine the length of -4AN hose required to reach from the fuel
pressure regulator to the factory return line at the fuel pump. Mark
the locations to be cut and wrap the hose tightly with masking or
electrical tape at these points. Make sure to use enough hose to
prevent the possibility of the hose kinking after assembly.
3.
Using a vice, clamp the hose loosely and position the cut line at the
edge of the vice. The best way to cut is with cutting wheel or a
hacksaw with two blades opposing one another. Remove the tape
when you are finished cutting.
Figure 16 - Connect Return Hose to Fuel Pump
2.
Connect the -6AN fuel supply hose to the EFI adapter fitting on the
fuel pump. Be sure hoses are properly clocked before fully
tightening the fittings.
5.
Fuel Tank Reinstallation:
NOTE: It is best to measure, mark, and cut each section
one at a time.
4.
5.
Locate the hose ends to be used in your installation. For the fuel
pump to fuel filter, and filter to fuel rail hoses, we used one -6AN
straight hose end at each end of each line. For the fuel rail to fuel
pressure regulator line, we used one 45° swivel hose end and one
90° swivel hose end. For the fuel pressure regulator to fuel tank
return line, we used one straight -4AN hose end at the regulator end
of the line. A hose clamp and clamp cover will be used to secure it
to the fuel return at the tank.
Hose End Assembly:
NOTE: Use fitting assembly lube when assembling hose ends.
Use AN wrenches if available, and DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN
FITTINGS. See Russell catalog or contact the Edelbrock Tech
Line for details.
A.
Unscrew the socket of the hose end from the nipple. Hold
the socket carefully in a vice using soft jaws and insert the
hose into the socket by turning it counter-clockwise. The
hose will stop at the bottom step of the socket.
B.
Position the nipple assembly of the hose end in the vice
using soft jaws. Apply assembly lube to the threads of the
socket as well as to the nipple assembly.
C.
Start the socket over the nipple by hand to ensure correct
alignment of threads and tighten as far as possible by
hand. Finish with the correct AN wrench until it reaches
the nipple hex or when there is no more than 1/16" gap
between the nipple/socket assembly. Be sure to wash and
pressure test the assembly before using.
A.
Begin to raise the fuel tank back into position. Make sure
the fuel supply and return hoses are aligned such that they
are leading towards your intended routing path.
B.
Reconnect the vent line and any other connections as you
raise the tank into position. Make sure the fuel supply and
return hoses are not kinked or pinched in any way by the
fuel tank and that the top of the fuel pump is aligned
properly with the fuel pump access hole in the chassis.
C.
When the tank is in position, reinstall the fuel tank
mounting straps and tighten the mounting strap bolts.
D.
Reinstall the exhaust midpipe that was removed
previously. Replace exhaust gaskets if necessary.
E.
Reconnect the fuel fill tube to the fuel tank. Reinstall the
fuel fill tube cover and driver side rear wheel.
3.
Make sure the fuel supply and fuel return hoses are laid out under
the car such that they are leading in the direction of your desired
fuel line routing.
4.
If using the factory fuel line routing, align the fuel supply and return
lines in the factory channel, and use the factory clips (with tabs
removed previously for clearance) to secure them in place, and
reinstall the factory fuel line cover (See Fig. 17). If using a
different path, align the fuel supply and return hoses in place and
use the supplied cushion clamps to secure them to the chassis.
ASSEMBLED FUEL LINE INSTALLATION:
1.
Connect the -4AN fuel return hose to the fuel pump. Slip the hose
clamp cover, followed by the hose clamp over the end of the hose,
and slide the hose over the return line on the pump. Snug the hose
clamp over the end of the return line, but do not fully tighten. Slip
the hose clamp cover over the clamp (See Fig. 16).
