Wasn't able to check the fuel pressure this weekend as no one in town carries a mityvac hand pump with the fuel pressure option, and so I had to order one. (I didn't want to shell out $50 for a crappy shucks model), but pressure regulator is definately making noise. I assume that if there was any air in the fuel lines that was introduced when I changed them that it would all be purged at some point??

I'm still betting it's the fuel pump because the thing just sounds sickly. Just for fun I tried clamping (with my hands) the fuel lines before the fuel rail to see if I could choke the engine, but it just kept running as bad as normal at idle. Maybe just a small amount of fuel is trickling to them- just enough to keep the engine running, and therefore it is the fuel pump, or blockage at the fuel filter- although I just replaced it.

There isn't some type of filter in the tank itself, right?
