Pierburg valve is (1) fitted to the filter head outlet using a banjo bolt and copper washers like on the inlet -


Hose to the injection pump inlet then is connected to the valve outlet.

Some part numbers that may help in searching for a valve:

GM 8966107, superseded by GM 90264611.
Pierburg 71555402 or 715554020.
Opel 813384, 90280322.
