Fuel Bowl Question

My question is, can anybody tell me who the guy is that engineered this thing so I can go punch them in the mouth and throw my fuel bowl at his head????

What an insane, complicated BS design that is a MF'er to mess with. I wish I could afford a delete lol

Does anybody know what the sensor is at the very bottom? I think it's a fuel pressure sensor...anybody know?

Well, I noticed it was a little hard cranking this morning, and I checked my under hood fuel pressure gauge.....only 15 PSI at idle.....uh oh.

So, I pulled my fuel filter and it was covered in rust, and the bottom of the bowl had about an inch of rust and black particles. Yay. So I pulled the bowl so i could disassemble and clean it and the FPR assembly, then I get to drop the tanks and clean those too. I love my truck

How often do you use this truck? Does it sit a lot so fuel filter changes are far and in between or did you get some REALLY crapy fuel?

Im guessing I got really crappy fuel. I am anal about maintenance on my truck, I change the oil every 5k, fuel filter was just done about 6 months ago, I dont drive the truck very often, maybe 200 miles a month if that. im assuming I got really crappy fuel consistently since changing the fuel filter.

And to top it all off, my bowl has a crack in it too, and the FPR has a crack too, and the FPR screen filter element (the one in the mini water filter type housing, not the round screen) is all torn to crap.

Anybody delete the FB keeping the stock fuel pump? I cant replace the FP with an electric, i dont have the cabbage to do so. I can get filter bases really easily, I may have some laying around. All the deletes Ive seen add an electric fuel pump.........
