Installing 2nd gen piston pump, do i need to add a spacer?

I'm installing a stock 2nd gen piston lift pump i got from geno's garage. Do I need to add a spacer to that pump when installing it on a first gen?

IF it didn't come with one, then probably.haha You can buy the spacer, when I got my LPPP, I bought it in a kit and it came with everything. But, I believe the spacer is like 1/4in. or something close.

Yes im running a second gen lift pump i set up everything myself. You will need a spacer and you will need to make/bend one line and also regulated it, because they can put out 50+psi and you dont want anymore then about 18psi on a first gen but i would regulate at least a bit lower.

Yeah I've got the regulator mounted up. Just finished trimming the lifter cover insulation. Now gotta drop the tank and install the larger fuel lines. Gonna have to round up a spacer tomorrow now.

Upon further research the spacer is 1/4" thick and is cummins part # 3914284. Supposed to run about $12us. If I can't find one up here I might just plasma cut 2 sbc fp adaptors and throw a gasket between them.

1/4" thought i said that before sorry. Also i didn't run larger lines mines doing great just fine and fp never drops. That's up to you though, good luck if you got any other questions for me just ask.

I totally read past that sorry. Ive got all the stuff left over from past racecars to build the fuel lines full 3/8" feed and return plus a 3/8" draw straw. Figured I'd put it to use on this truck.

Ya can't hurt i would of if i had extra material laying around but i didn't and other people have been fine and this is more then enough, im only running about 7psi because i bought a cheap regulator but its enough but ill upgrade later and the fuel lines as well, still though i don't think im loosing power.
