HI,

I had to find that one from Dayco. Ford does not have a diagram to bypass the compressor.

I will opt out and see if another expert has a different one

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
