OBS fuel bowl delete questions
Well, Im tired of chasing the leaks in my fuel bowl, and I want to delete it. A new one with the FPR is 400 and up best I can find. Plus, I can never seem to get any cap to seal correctly on the FB, and It's a hassle I dont want anymore. My truck always reeks of diesel, and I've tried just about everything to fix it.
I do not wish to upgrade to a SD electric pump at this time, nor is the 100+ extra dollars in my budget right now at all. I have an idea on how to do it, I was just hoping for some input.
My plan is to plumb a water seperator and 2 micron filter utilizing the same flow pattern as the stock setup, coming off the low pressure side of the mechanical pump, through the filters, and then back to the high pressure side of the pump. somewhere in there i'd have a pressure regulator as deleting the bowl also deletes the FPR. Im just not sure how the fuel flows through the stock setup. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've looked and looked for a conversion without electric pumps, i just cant find one. Plus, doing this way will allow me to upgrade to a SD pump in the future when I can afford it. I think I can do the filters and regulator for around 200 bucks. Any thoughts???? Thanks in advance
