Arrow 92 bluebird with 6.6.... can't seem to figure out fuel pump specs

I've been running veggie oil for almost 4 years now all in a 7.3 idi I used an adjustable pressure veggie oil specific pump to move the oil from the holding tank through the heat exchanger and two heated racor filters into the fuel lines. I just built out my new 92 6.6 bluebird now I'm curious what pressure I should have my pump set at to send fuel to the Bosch injection pump. Thanks in advance

If you're talking about the Caterpillar 3116, it uses mechanical unit injectors and direct injection. I don't know if you will sweat the seals with over-pressure of the pre-pump, but why don't you just adjust with use of a vacuum/pressure gauge, shooting for around zero psi?

I suppose you will want to make sure it is going into the pump nice and hot. it being veg oil.
