Fuel bowl delete water separator question

After recently having a issues with my stock fuel bowl cracking being repaired an cracking again on top of a slight leak I never figured out for the last year (even after replacing all the o rings) I decided to just get rid of it! I went with the regulated return kit off of strictly diesel.. I believe driven diesel makes the kit. I bought the post pump filter kit also but after ordering I realized that I would have no water separator, my question is can I just run a fuel filter with separator in the filter? Would that be adequate for the truck? Eventually I'm going to run either a fass or air dog system which has a separator in it, but that won't be until the summer. Thanks

Typically you run a pre filter/water seperator then a post filter. Having the water seperator built into the filter is fine. I have a older kit from Dennis back when he was ITP diesel and use a AirDog in place of the pre filter/water seperator. On my OBS, I am about to install a Irate kit which has water seperators built into the pre and post pump filters.

AD and FASS's W/S aren't that good. A baldwin FB1311 filter head and FS1212 prepump filter will take care of all the water stripping your engine will ever need.

Fuel bowl delete water separator question

So I should run a pre pump filter also? I didn't even see that offered in the site... Could I get away with just a post pump filter for now or would that be risky?

With the post pump I was planning to run a separator filter similar to something Jegs offers

Personally I would but I like things a little over kill sometimes..

Strictly diesel does make a pre-pump kit..

Driven Diesel Fuel Tank / Pre-Pump Kit

You could run a Fleetguard FS1000 as a stand alone filter, 10 microns absolute (same as the factory filter) and strips water at a 92-95% clip.
