Hi all,

I wonder if someone can help? I am in the process of installing the fuel system to my Zero. The standard Ford fuel regulator has a nylon pipe running from it's lower extremities. I am not sure where it should be connected. Does anyone know if this is needed or where I should connect it?

Many thanks

I connected mine to the spare outlet on the plenum for some vacuum, I've seen other builds and comments that say don't bother though.

I think the intention is originally it adjusts the fuel pressure depending on intake conditions - but is probably only reliable with the OEM intake.
I guess if you are using the Plenum outlet for your IACV there will be nowhere to connect the vacuum tube anyway

As above. My engine runs fine and this nylon vacuum pipe is not connected anywhere.
