Share your fuel system mods

Still considering installing a fuel filter and water seperator and looking for suggestions as well as actual experiences from members that have updated their fuel systems.

I'm still primarily looking at just installing something similar to the Racor fuel filter and water seperator filter either pre-pump or post-pump.

Everyone share your fuel system upgrades......

So do you have one in place? I'm trying to get real world experience from users who already have one, or even from people who have modified their fuel system in other ways?

I've often heard that just adding an in-line filter and and water seperator could do more harm than good, especially if it's placed pre-pump (puts strain on the fuel pump, etc) as well as strain all around on the fuel system itself

Yeah I have them, well if you add them with a stock fuel bowl it might, but when you delete it you have to have some sort of filtration. When you do in tank mods you remove the screen from the pick up so you have to have a pre pump filter to protect the pump

Question

Bruce where is your's mounted Pre fuel pump or post pump? Any suggestions or tips on mounting the filter, or any pictures? Is your's a Racor brand? When you refer to "them" do you mean that you mounted more than one filter, and then did a fuel bowl delete? I was asking primarily about just adding one filter, such as the Racor brand fuel filter and water seperator.


Thanks

I haven't done it YET, but I have a B1212 for a pre pump filter. Water separator filters work better on the suction side.
Then I have a B7633 for post pump. And whatever base fits those filters.

You can go on driven diesel and look at theirs and build something that resembles what they offer

I just did a pre pump bf1212 and modified the tank this past weekend and wished I had done it sooner. The foot breaking off was the main motivator but when I got it put back together and took the mixing chamber apart to see the screens I was shocked. Both of them were full of junk. I have not finished the tank yet so I can't speak on the supposed cackle reduction but I am comforted by having a filter that I can change every so often.
I am planning a bowl delete and post filter with regulated return next. I think the kits are the best way to go if you have the $$. With my discounts through work I can build my own and not only save a little but also spread the cost out. Plus I enjoy the research and kit assembly. More then likely I will add a helper pump as well.
