Icon9 Can't find Fuel Pressure Damper - Help!

1998 Ranger 3.0-V6
Fuel Pressure Damper (bolts onto the fuel rail)
Located on the passenger side, front of engine.

Ford Part # F87E-9F775-BB

According to Ford, the part is obsolete! I have tried aftermarket, salvage yards and searching on the internet, no luck. So, I'm hoping that one of you have had this problem and know a solution.

I had the same issue. Found out that Ford superseded that part number with part number F87Z-9F775-BA. They don't make that one either, but it will cross-reference to aftermarket replacement parts. You probably already figured that out, since your post was six months ago, but I thought I'd respond so anyone else who came across this would know where to look.

F87E-9F775-BB Amended

OK - F87E-9F775-BB was superceded according to Ford. The superceded part is supposed to be F87Z-9F775-BA. While this part is also no longer made by Ford, it does cross reference to Standard Parts part number FPD21, but it seems to be only the vacuum portion at the bottom of the original part. The original part is one-piece, so whatever was done to replace the original part may require two new components. I now have Standard Parts part number FPD22 on order to see if that does it. I will let everyone know what happens. By the way, apparently this fuel delivery system was used for only a very short time (less than the model year), so no one feels obligated to re-create the part. I asked a dealer how they would fix it, and they responded, "We would direct you to buy a new vehicle". - NICE!

Well, like everyone else, I struck out, too. The part was also made by Standard Parts (part number FPD22) and by Wells (part number 3G1007). Both companies no longer make the part and neither has any in stock. Since that particular fuel delivery system was only produced for only a part of that model year, salvage yards are not likely to have many. Seems a shame - my truck ran and looked great and many of the chassis parts are new in spite of its 185,000 miles. Now it appears I'll have to part it out because of the lack of a $50 part.

If it were me I'd search to see what it would take to upgrade to a '99 fuel system.
Maybe get the fuel rails and lines from a JY.

I ended up putting the old dampener back in, plugging the vacuum line and the vacuum nipple on the dampener. It starts and runs great. I will probably be in trouble if the fuel surges, though...

I think you're talking about the fuel pressure regulator. I'd be a bit worried about plugging that vac line since if the unit begins to leak fuel, now comes the fire concern. If it were me and I owned it, I'm sure it would fail on a 0* night, wind howling, snow coming down hard and I'd be out in BFE by myself and not hitting any cell towers, lol.

Have you tried:

*NAPA

*O'Reilly/Autozone/etc

*Ebay

And last but not least, car-part.com? Sounds like you've done some research on this, maybe if you can pin it down to a range of VIN's or build dates the junkyard that you contact will be able to spot it faster.

**I like that upgrade to a 99 system idea, good call!

Head over to napa they have them, its a special order part, mine was $60. Autozone didnt have it.

How did you get yours off? It looks like its locked on to the rail on mine atleast.

This is what it looks like correct?

Here is what this orphan drove me to do; Take existing fuel dampner and dremel off the leaky diaphragm housing (metal) that was formely sucking gas into your intake. Take a hammer and various punches, screw drivers, etc, without damaging the two bolt o ring fitting that connects to the fuel rail, (you will need this. On a hard surface with backup to the direction your hammering, bend existing factory flange back out flat. Once that it is close, get a socket that will fit flat area that is around circular flange, and use a round or square punch that has a flat head about the same width of the unbent flange and hammer flat any unintensional distortion.
clean and epoxy in a disk cut from an existing piece of fiberglass. Laminate it up, with a layer of glass mat and soon as it is cured bend and hammer metal flange back into position and add another layer of epoxy.

In former post forgot to add that you need to be sure and have pressure relief valve located in the tank, make sure it is there. It is factory issue for the 1998. This is a waste gate that reliefs pressure from fuel rail
into the tank itself negating the use for a fuel return line. This part of the fuel pump assembly.
If it is factory your good to go, after market pumps may not have this pressure relief valve.
Basicly if your truck was running before the fuel dampner started leaking it really does not need a vacuum control on the fuel there. It just had a very mickey mouse non controllable damper plate in there that did not hardly restrict anything controlled or not.
Just cut it off,, plug it up and your good to go.
