Alright, the time has come to pull the trigger and upgrade my veg system.
My current setup is a goldenfuel system on a '96 F-250. Check here for details:
Planned upgrades are as follows:
Fuel bowl delete
Mechanical lift pump delete
Pollack valve delte
Install a check valve based system. The schematic is as follows:
d2 > filter > raptor > check valve > ball valve >stock banjo bolt and stock lines to back of heads.
veg tank > hot fox > HOH > Racor 1000 > FASS > check valve > FPHE > ball valve > front ports.
Also, the electric heater on one of my racors shorted out. So, as part of this I'm installing the aux coolant pump (See Clay Henry's aux pump writeup) and wrapping that Racor with hot coolant line. It takes about 15ft of coolant line to wrap the filter, so I thought that merited the aux pump.
This last weekend, I tore all the old stuff out. Getting the stock pump out was actually pretty straightforward (that was my biggest fear). I bought a 1 1/4 gear wrench and that made quick work of the banjo bolt.
Currently, I'm trying to figure out where to mount everything and piecing together fittings.
I'm going to try and mount the FPHE in the engine valley using the mounting holes for the fuel bowl. not sure if I can squeeze it in there, but it would be sweet to have it so close to the front ports.
Where do you guys mount your FPHE?
Also, I may just use the stock return lines to feed veg. The fittings are in good shape, so we'll see if I can make it fit.
BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAS HELPED ME PLAN, including ridiculously_necessary, vegginpsd, BruceM, Hheynow, Clay_henry, and others.
Pictures and parts lists are forthcoming. Stay tuned!
