misunderstanding or not, but yes that is what I meant if I was to collect all the shavings I seen, maybe a dime size in the palm of my hand.I think you're misunderstanding what he was saying here. I interpreted it as the total amount of shavings would have been the size of a dime, not a dime-sized piece of metal.
I dropped mine first (about half full), siphoned the remaining fuel out, then dumped some simple green in it and sloshed it around. I did that several times then rinsed it out with water another couple times. When it was dry, it looked brand new inside. I also inspected inside with a snake camera to be sure. This process was probably the easiest out of everything I had to do.Also, cleaning the tank out-I don't care how cute the youtube girl was but do you really flush it out with a water hose?????? don't sound correct to me, diesel tank and a water hose?
Thats a big help, I have looked all in youtube and google and here and there is no really good info on how to clean the fuel tank, more on how to drain and remove it. Except that one clip in youtube of the hot girl hosing her tank outI dropped mine first (about half full), siphoned the remaining fuel out, then dumped some simple green in it and sloshed it around. I did that several times then rinsed it out with water another couple times. When it was dry, it looked brand new inside. I also inspected inside with a snake camera to be sure. This process was probably the easiest out of everything I had to do.
I would buy 2 or even 3 sets of fuel filters. After everything is fixed, drive it for about a hundred miles then change the filters just in case. The upper filter will more than likely catch any leftover debris and if you have the S&S kit, you can inspect the fuel coming out of the pump.
Do not buy SPE. Do yourself a favor and buy the S&S Gen2 kit. I had the SPE kit and the return screen failed. Their customer service is also trash. The S&S kit is much nicer, better made, and install is way easier.If everything goes my way on investigation and then clean up, I plan on putting the SPE-S100142 SPE Disaster kit and sending it. This is what I have come to agreement with because From what I have already read on the 2011-2014's from pass years and then as the 2015's and up started putting on the mileage and finding out they fail now, it don't matter in my mind, it's just when? Kinda like replace your timing belt on those smaller gas engines at around 75,000 miles+ regardless, because if it goes it will take out a perfectly good running engine, I do like the feed back on the above kit I mention, sounds like best protection along with lubing the fuel. .
My truck had the original CP4 fail in 2016. It was not due to fuel contamination, although the dealer tried to blame it on that. They even tested the fuel and everything, it came out fine. Long story short it was covered under warranty. Sometimes these pumps just fail on their own. The most common problem is the roller getting off track, rotating, and shredding itself. My 2nd failure was due to a Warren DIY 55 over kit I put in. It appeared the plungers were putting too much pressure on the roller to begin with, so as soon as the truck and pump started, it was shredding metal.I have a 2016 with 106k, this pump is on my mind every road trip. I understand US diesel is lacking proper lube for the pump, but is there any other reason for the pump failures? I believe most owners are told the failures where due to fuel contamination, most owners say the fuel was fine.
Did you buy the truck new?
Where do you buy your fuel?.
Did you use additive?
Is it driven often or does it sit?
Anyone who has experienced a failure please chime in. I do not think Ford has ever addressed the failures with data.
Here ya go: https://www.accuratediesel.com/grap...n2-Bypass-Kit-Instructions-Rev2-21APR2021.pdfI like the new gen2 style. I have already bought a SPE but did not install because it looked like I could mess it up. I would like to see the installation instructions before I spend another $400. Anyone out there have a copy of the S&S gen2 kit Install?
Thank you, I ordered one this morning. Hope to install it this weekend.Here ya go: https://www.accuratediesel.com/grap...n2-Bypass-Kit-Instructions-Rev2-21APR2021.pdf
Hardest part (if you've never done it before) is getting both intake plenums off. After that it's a piece of cake. FYI do not go by the torque specs for the intakes when reinstalling. I cracked my brand new OEM metal one torquing it to the listed spec.
Pretty sure you can flush the lines for the kit and re use it (minus the return filter). If it works as expected, you'll only need to replace the pump itself and like 1 or 2 hp lines.If I have a high pressure pump failure with the new S&S kit installed. What will need replaced?
