Quick Hutch Mod Question

Hey guys,

A blown brake line has me dropping the tank to get it fixed and I figured this is a perfect time to do the Hutch/Harpoon Mod. Did a little research and decided to just buy a pre made kit (save on time). Will this kit from Strictly Diesel work? Anything I'm missing. I know I will have to buy a pre pump filter, I figure ill just get a cheap inline filter from NAPA. Let me know. Thanks!

Also, any advice on draining 3/4 of Biodiesel from the tank would be helpful

I don't have any advise for the hutch mod... But just siphon the fuel out of the tank

i wouldn't want just a cheap inline filter if it's the type I am thinking \
it has the potential to clog fully with minimal debris unlike the large units Driven Diesel Fuel Tank / Pre-Pump Kit

and get the tank to empty because even a few gallons makes it a pain IMHO

doing the harpoon mad also ?

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

That will work. Don't get an inline. Get an filter base part number 4770 and filter 3405. You will also need new fuel line from the tank to the pump. Use hose clamps instead of quick connects at the pump and tank. You need to get barb fitting for the filter base also.

I used their kit and the filter:

Driven Diesel Fuel Tank / Pre-Pump Kit

Might have saved a bit piecing it together but not worth the effort in my eyes.

Draining the tank, suction hose and lots of buckets?

I bought a new fuel umbrella, mine was in pieces in the bottom of the tank, and the on/off valves for the filter.

You really don't have to go to those extremes though. All you're replacing is the plastic screens in the mixer. I have had this simple screen (actually finer than what it replaces) for a number of years with Zero problems. I also like the ability to spot water in the polycarbonate bowl and know the state of things at a glance...

You may want to get a tool to release fuel lines from tank assembly. I think its a cheap plastic tool. I just made do with a screw driver.

Quick Hutch Mod Question

I used the kit from strictly diesel, very nice and had everything. I also ran the fuel tank down to empty on the gauge, the ran a hot wire to the fuel pump and opened the drain on the fuel bowel to empty the rest. There still was about 4 gal of fuel left.
