The one that Mopar Man has is a 3/4" to 3/8" reducer that can be found at hardware stores and auto parts stores.

The one that Mopar Man has is a 3/4" to 3/8" brass reducer that can be found at hardware stores and auto parts stores.

The boost bolt has to be ordered just like the tapped banjo bolt. You can order them from Diesel Auto Power, Jacob is awesome to work with.

Be careful with the boost bolt and how tight you tighten it. I've had a few reports of snapping them off because of over torquing the bolt. Then one last problem be careful where you put the bolt too because when you doing valve adjustments or bleeding the fuel line you don't want to keep smacking the nylon tube around. Eventual it will get brittle and snap off.

Actually I used a steel 3/4" to 1/2" then brass 1/2" to 1/8" NPT bushings.

So you DIDNT buy a boost bolt? If Im understanding this correctly you went to the hardware store and bought your fittings, took out that bolt by the fuel filter housing (square head on my truck) and installed there? I kind of like that Idea because its hidden quite well from being hit with tools while doing other things and looks like it would be a pretty clean looking install. Im REALLY hoping to have this done today because I also have to hook up my EGT, trans temp guage and Fuel pressure.

Nothing should leak out of that hole when you remove the plug. It goes straight into the intake. Yes, the threads are NPT.

Also, when I install my fuel pressure sender, that should be installed in between the fuel filter and vp44 correct? so we can measure the fuel pressure going IN to the vp44.
