Hutch mod fuel filter?

What do you guys recommend for a fuel filter when I do the hutch mod? Guzzle commented that the Racor he used wasn't up to the task and mentioned Dahl, but I didn't find much in the way of a complete Dahl filter/mount setup.

Am I better off just buying the whole kit from Strictly Diesel? They list 15ft of fuel hose. I thought the fuel pump was located down on the frame near the fuel tank. What's all that fuel line for?

The hose runs to the pump cus you can't reuse the stock line...but mainly there just trying to justify there price.

Get this.
WVO Bio Diesel Mount Base for HD Fram PS3712 Fuel Filter Water Separator | eBay

And get a lift pump then Get everything else at your local hose supply..

You can also get mounts like that at yours local farm supply

I got the kit from strictly and i'm glad i did. It had everything i needed and i didn't have to track down anything. I had about 8' of fuel line left to use on something else.

I've read you don't need to use a pre pump filter. The DieselTechRon guy on youtube says he has done quite a few of them and haven't used a fuel filter without a problem.

If the mixer/filters are getting dirty and clogged then guess what?
All that crap is going through your fuel pump till it gets to your main filter then to the injectors.

Russian roulette there buddy

I did hutch and harpoon mod, put in carter lift pump with no filters before stock pump. Cost me my stock pump. So I got on eBay and got a dual filter setup cheap, run a water separator and 3 micron filter prepump now and ally good for over a year now. About to get a post pump filter and do a regulated return this winter.

It isn't recommended to run that kind of restriction pre-pump since fuel pumps are not built to suck. The water separator is a good idea, but you may want to think about moving the pre-pump filter to post-pump so your pump can live a longer life.

I might just be confused but dont you want the filter in front of the pump to protect it? Cant he just get a filter that isnt 3 microns....Otherwise whats the point? your filtering fuel twice before it hit's the heads, and never before it hits the pump...

just make sure the filter is rated for suction.

i really like strictly's kit too, it is on the the to do list probably when injectors get replaced.
