Water Separator

My friend has a 86 F250 6.9 with a aftermarket banks turbo kit. He is trying to located the fuel water separator we cannot seem to locate it. Does any one know where I can find the water separator on the 6.9. I am not sure if it had to be relocated beacause of the aftermarket turbo or not. The water separator is not located on the firewall where it suppose to be.

Very possible it has been bypassed and removed from the vechile. The factory one can be quite a pain because of air leaks and such; because of wore out gaskets. Only thing i can tell you is start at he the filter head and trace your way back to the tank. If there isnt a seperator there then it has been deleted. On my truck when i bought it, it was removed and a wix filter head with a fuel/water seperator filter was mounted under the truck.

Stock seperator will be on the firewall in between the brake master cylinder and fender (it will actually be down about 10" from that, kinda down in that area). It has a pull chain thing on it to release the water. The 6.9 setup sucks, most bypass. Mine doesnt even work, stuck with the chain in the drain position. Doesnt suck air and it always gets ride of the water LOL
