6.7L Ford Powerstroke "Disaster Prevention Kit"

I've been looking at this. Everything about it makes sense. 26 years as a helicopter mechanic working on turbine engines says "this makes sense".

Why doesn't Ford incorporate this technology into their build? Bean counter's I'm guessing. What makes sense to the consumer may hurt the bottom line. Whatever. I'm buying one.

I found the install instructions at Engineered Diesel (Not an endorsement. They just had the install instructions posted. Still haven't decided where I'm going to purchase it from) and knew that this was well within my skill set.

So I'm gonna buy this thing next week. I'll post pics (Maybe. Once I get going I can't promise anything) of the install but I can tell you this folks. If you like to crack a beer and wrench on your truck this install is NOT for you.

Accurate Diesel Disaster Prevention Kit

Ooph. Sorry. Thought it was common knowledge. My mistake. Accurate Diesel Disaster Prevention Kit.

Need more posts to send URLs.

My truck-

2016 White XL F-250. Vinyl grey on vinyl black floors. Former rental with 18k miles. 1000 hours on the clock with 333 hours idle time. I have big slobbery dogs and love to hunt, camp and fish. The interior was perfect for me. Rare find. Idle time is a big concern but it was an excellent bargaing tool. I can change an EGR cooler in my driveway. And yes. I bought this truck CHEAP!

That is the one. My inner mechanic says "this just makes sense". For most of my 26 years grabbing fuel off of whatever deck you could get it from, the Grapes would always poor a sample from a tap off of the high pressure fuel nozzle into a glass bottle. I always thought "how stupid are we" as they swirled the glass bottle for me to inspect and approve. They would swirl it in the bottle and I would look at it inspecting it for water globules. Hah! What a joke. I'm looking at a glass bottle bottle full of swirling fuel lighted by a green lensed flashlight. Looking for miniscule water globules. About five years ago CNAF realized this was stupid. We always flew on faith that the "Grapes" properly maintained their fuel delivery systems and gave us clean JP-5. JP-5 is very similar to Diesel #2. You fuel on faith. Faith in your fellows. Well my truck is never going to fall out of the sky if I buy bad fuel. It will however break my bank. Sooo.... this kit makes sense.

thanks for the Link Heavy

looks interesting if they aren't overselling it's capabilities or under estimating what happens when a pump fails

but seeing as how they are site vendors i doubt either of my concerns are valid

Like I've mentioned. I am a helicopter mechanic. Turbine powered helicopters utilize fuel for cooling and lubrication as well as it's primary duty which is to convert it into noise. Fuel contamination from failed components is something GE spends a lot of money on preventing when they design their engines. Why did Ford not design a bypass system into the CP4 when they designed the Scorpion engine and chose to lubricate the CP4 using the same fuel heading down range? I'd only be guessing and my guesses are not kind to Ford. Anything that would prevent metal from heading down range to all of the REALLY REALLY expensive parts if the CP4 fails is just good sense to me.

Yup. First thing I'll be purchasing when the day finally comes I get a 6.7

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

Not my intention to make anybody worry. I have 5000 plus flight hours in helicopters and it was my job to KNOW how every system works. It was my job to worry and it's in my blood now. I just like the idea of cheap insurance. Ford has millions of Scorpion engines on the road. Catastrophic CP4 failures are in the thousands. The problem is CP4 failures are almost always caused by fuel contaminated with water and are not covered under the Ford powertrain warranty. Ford has a procedure where they have the technicians photograph the injectors and if there is any evidence of corrosion you are left to deal with your insurance company if you have that kind of coverage. If not, you are stuck with a $5k plus (maybe double) repair bill to replace every component in the entire fuel delivery system. Tank to injectors and everything in between. This kit limits the damage to everything before the CP4. Still expensive but just a small fraction of the cost of a full fuel system swap. I can do that repair in my driveway.

Do your scheduled maintenance and don't depend on the dashboard warnings and you should be fine. I'm OCD and the idea of this kit just makes me feel better. My real hope is to never come back to this forum and tell you how well it worked.
