Re: Installing a fuel water seperator

Search regulated return set ups they have to put on in then cause they delete the bowl.

Its pretty simple. You get a napa filter base. The desired filter and then find a place to mount it ans then plump it in

I recently did the hutch mod to my truck and I needed a pre-pump filter since I did away with the mixer with it's screens. I simply cut 2 pieces of flat 1/4" plate steel, about 3 1/2" wide, long enough to extend past the width of the truck frame and drilled a couple of holes and used some long 5/16" bolts to bolt the plates together with the frame sandwiched inbetween. This gave me a good mounting plate on the inside of the frame to mount the filter base which I had found online cheap without drilling any holes in the frame itself. I installed 3/8" barbed nipples in the filter base for the 3/8" fuel hose and there you go - I used a NAPA 3472 filter which is 12 micron rated I believe and has the water drain plug in the bottom. I had also recently just resealed my factory fuel bowl and new filter & pressure regulator so I have retained it as well, that filter should last a long time with this pre-filter in service.

Where and how did you tap into the fuel line going to the pump?

I didn't - I did the hutch mod, rubber fuel line from the top of the tank to the filter, rubber from the filter to the inlet on the pump. Be sure to use diesel rated fuel injection hose, I paid about $3.60 per foot thru our shop but it retails upwards of $8 - $9 a foot. It's a little tough pushing the hose over the factory fittings at the tank and on the pump but it will go with a little effort. Standard hose clamps to secure them.
