I pre-emptively replaced the pump on my 05 this spring. I read this whole thread back to front and front to back. Here's my experience:

- The short answer is that the pump nipple and the pressure regulator nipple are two different sizes -- 5/8 and 1/4 I believe. So the APE hoses are problematic. It is really difficult to try to expand the end of a smaller-diameter plastic hose to fit over a larger nipple.
- Some guys have made the APE hose work by keeping the smaller diameter end of the original hose on the nipple and sliding the larger diameter of the APE hose over it -- sort of a sleeve.
- You can get fuel-submersible rubber hose at most auto parts stores. (Note: Must be SAE 30R10 rated since regular rubber hose will degrade when submersed in fuel.) Get the size to fit the smaller nipple. Using a heat gun or blow dryer and a drop of oil on the larger nipple, it can be gently slid on.
- Prior to doing my replacement I purchased a couple of lengths of the APE hose as well as 12" of submersible rubber hose so I would have everything I needed if the OEM hose came apart. Fortunately, I was able to reuse the OEM hose so didn't need to worry about this.

- You will read about guys having issues with leak-back if the hoses aren't clamped tightly since the diameter is really small for a gear-clamp to provide even sealing pressure. I used Oetiker clamps (aka. ear clamps) like the OEM and have not had a problem.

Hope this helps.

Has anyone put a 3 bar regulator onto a millenium module?

I have been having trouble with fuel pressure since the end of last season (Sept. 2016).

Read through this whole post and decided to take the fuel pump assembly module out and set up a bucket with five gallons of gas and using my compressor blew air back through the top of the regulator to the fuel pump. Low and behold I had a hole in the hose at the connection to the nipple on the fuel pump. The hose clamp was connected at the bottom of the hose and not close to the barb on the nipple.

I adjusted the hose and clamp and placed it right on top of the barb and but the air back to it and ta-da it held pressure. Hooked it back up and put the fuel gauge back on the rail and hit the key, it held pressure.

Took the boat out to the lake and had the fuel pressure gauge on the rail and pressure never wavered.

Was this the factory clamp that was leaking?

I installed Napa part number 2-19737 over the weekend onto the millennium module to convert it to a 40 psi application (3bar). Used dual oetiker clamps. Works great and was a simple install. Great possibility for anyone with an LTR engine made in 98 or 99 since we don't have a return fuel system.

Has anybody sourced the corrugated fuel line from the pump to the regulator yet? I know the ends are two different sizes.

Yes, see my post #781 above.
I purchased several lengths from APE prior to doing my install. http://www.autoperformanceengineerin...html/kits.html

Has anyone even bothered to call carter to try to get a new hose. Maybe we can do a group buy of 300 of them. Here is the contact number.
