Post '94 300 fuel pressure regulator
I heard ford changed Fuel pressure Regulator designs, would anyone know if the new ones would be the new design?
I got a BWD replacement since everything else is wearing out, and my truck is showing the same symptoms as a propane forklift and it's propane regulator was on it's last leg

AFAIK the regulators for the 300 are all the same design. On late model engines Ford has indeed changed the design but it is not compatible with the older fuel systems.

Our regulators are a pilot operated backpressure valve, a type of pressure relief valve which is placed in the circuit after the injectors and maintains a constant pressure on the upstream side of the valve.

The newer systems use a pressure reducing valve which is placed in the circuit before the injectors and maintains a constant pressure downstream of the valve

Ahwell, for $50 I have peace of mind that it's new and functioning. Also seems to have taken care of the occasional truck wanting to stall when revving sharply, here's to hoping it fixes the occasional stall and the 1 in 5 times stalling when going into reverse after warm-up.

There is a 2 volt and a 3 bolt regulator. I can't remember which year they changed from or to another. I think I got my EFI manifold setup off an 88 or 89 and my regulator is a 2 bolt.

If you look up a regulator for an 87 compared to a 96 and you can see a picture, you might be able to narrow down the year that it changed.

96 is a 2 bolt.
Regardless of whether it's a 2 or 3 bolt mounting flange, it's the same basic design for all of them. IIRC the design change from backpressure valve to reducing valve happened sometime around 97 or 98

Yeah, with the introduction of the Triton engines.

96 huh? Maybe I got the manifolds from someone who didn't know what they came from. I. Any case, one nice thing about the 2 bolt design is that you can easily modify an aftermarket regulator for like a 3.8 to bolt on without any ugly or cumbersome adaptations.
