This is the fuel regulator from the CP4. Notice all the metal shavings. We never could figure out what the red flakes were? This would've had to come from AFTER the filter. Thought maybe it was a baldwin filter on it and he scraped it putting it on or something but it was an AC Delco. Doesn't matter now. Truck has an LBZ CP3 on it. :D

Damn I'm trying to get some debt paid off before I swap mine but those type of pictures make me want to just pull the trigger. I'm deleted now, around 90,000 miles and with no warranty starting to worry. There's no way I got 10gs laying around to drop on a entire new fuel system.

Hmm I'll have to take my regulator out and see if it's got shavings.. I just did the conversion also.. Here's a tool I made for one of the bolts that hold the pump in...pretty rough looking but did what I needed lol

Im pretty sure i know the bolt youre talking about. We ended up taking some chit apart to get to everything and had to bend some fuel lines. Also had a helluva time with a coolant tube on the drivers side.

First bit of advice i have for anyone doing this, if you get your kit from Fleece just THROW AWAY YOUR DIRECTIONS and use the DF lol. (not bashing fleece, just whoever wrote their very VERY vague instructions.)

I wouldn't worry too much. This truck has had a hard life of towing heavy and not so good quality (sometimes red) fuel. He had some obvious signs too. Mainly it didnt have any power.

Well I may have to just pull the trigger for some peace of mind. Thing that sucks is to be brutally honest i really don't have the space, tools, or the wrenching abilities to do this myself lol. I'm prob going to have to pay out the ass for labor.

I'm 45 minutes north of Harrisonburg Va. I have a good friend I went to school with, his dad and him own a shop near me. He pretty much does nothing but duramax and only Charges bout 65 70 an hour. Which isn't horrible but I know I could save so much more if I knew what I was doing. I'm far from that good with a wrench to do the swap though I won't lie to myself :rofl:rofl
