This time I did not open the valve. thanks for response. I would have thought it would bleed off overnight. I just wanted to know it the bowl holds pressure after engine off. Can't find it in my searches and it does not specify in my Ford manuals.
Do you have a few threads going with this no-start issue?
Seems I had responded but can't find it now.
Do you have smoke out the exhaust pipe while cranking?
Thanks for coming in to explain it Will make it a priority to find this pin holeThe fuel regulator has a tiny hole that's always open, along with the spring loaded regulator plunger. So when you turn the key on, fuel flows into the bowl, thru the open hole till pressure builds up to the point where the spring-loaded plunger starts to open. Then when the pump shuts off, the pressure HAS to bleed off completely thru the open pinhole. If it doesn't, something is plugging the hole. It may take a minute or two for the pressure to completely bleed off, but it definitely should NOT be pressurized after sitting overnight.
