SOURCE: fuel pressure regulator
How do you know that it is the regulator?
these 4.3 motors had a lot of trouble from 93 to 98, I know I had 2 of them.
What happened to mine was that the intake kept getting very carboned up. After I would clean it, the truck would run fine for about 5 or 6 months, then same thing.
Theres actually a class action lawsuit about this that I believe has been settled, you may have recourse if you bought it through a dealer. Good luck.You'll need it.

The most likely 2 causes are leaking fuel pressure regulator on the side of the spider, or leaking fuel LINE going into or out of the spider. Both are reasonably common failures. a replacement spider would come with a new regulator but NOT a new line, so verify which is leaking before you order a spider up.
They do not fail that often anymore, not like 5 or 8 years ago when gasoline still had mtbe in it, the vortec unit is very dependable nowadays.

number 1 is the front Cyl on drivers side.
then it is #3 #5
Passenger side is #2 #4 #6
#1 on distributor cap is the front side of cap next
to the hold down screw clockwise side of the screw.
Firing order goes clockwise looking down on the distribuater.
