I did not do the fuel rail cross over. I planned on doing a "hutch mod" with this kit: https://www.riffraffdiesel.com/riffr...-fuel-mod-kit/
and a new fuel pickup foot https://www.riffraffdiesel.com/fuel-...ot-and-screen/
However, my '98 has the old sending unit in the tank which does not have a "mixing chamber" that the kit eliminates.
So, I reinstalled the tank/sending unit as-is and ran new rubber 3/8" diesel fuel line to the hard lines on the block. About 3 feet from the block I installed a 50 micron Wix 33972 screen which has already caught some crap after two tanks and should keep stuff out of my fuel bowl filter. Some people spend more and install a Racor system like this: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...od-filter.html
or RiffRaff sells a canister too.
Since I opened up the Riff Raff Hutch kit and reamed out the pickup screen I have it for sale: http://www.sportsmobileforum.com/for...aff-24658.html
Last thing to note about a Hutch mod and an E350. In the vans there's a pan in the bottom of the tank that's necessary for the gas vans. Some Hutch Mod kits and threads show a stainless extension for the fuel return to move it 18" away from the pickup. I talked to Clay from RiffRaff on the phone and he doesn't think it's really necessary to to that which is why his kit includes a short section of hose to deflect the return. Here's a thread where a guy bent some line up over the pan, just don't use a paper filter like he did
