E-Fuel Issue

So about 4 years I bought a beans e-fuel system. The system use a walbro pump. Needless to say the pump failed. So called beans and the said I could use one from a 99+ SD. I ordered one up installed it. While the weather was cold it seemed to run great. The last few days it was been crapping I think. It seems as though it loses pressure and I have no idea why. I am thinking maybe pluging line or may have got some water in system. I have not changed my filters since june but don't drive the truck a whole lot. maybe 1000 miles per month. It has been parked for the last 2. Any ideas on what may be causeing to lose pressure would be big help. Oh and yes when it dies the pump is still running. Thanks

Sounds like the fuel is gelled up a bit. You should probably change the filters

I think I am just gonna order some from eBay or what not. I called around and the Napa in town said one is in Denver the other in CA. And is at least 5 days out . So with that in mind may as well order online out of state.

Only warning when ordering filters for our setup is that we use less than common cam-lock filters designed by CAT to the regular spin on filters.

That is great info to know. I think the system has been changed to stanadyne fm100 series with clear bowl. Was thinking of getting them but hard to track down numbers for them. May have to get the wix ones again.

Stanadyne also makes cam-lock filters. Wix is the direct replacement and uses the same part numbers. The clear bowls will transfer to any filter with a drain port. Keep those bowls, they are like $100 a pair.
