Hey Guys. Wanted additional filtration for my CTD so I looked to a very informative thread:
Installing additional fuel filters, GDP w/ Cat 2 Micron, and a Fuel/Water Sep....
If you have any install questions, check/post in there or here.
- (2-3) Favorite local Microbrews: Pizza Port Oatmeal Stout
- (2) Bolts for the seat: M8X25 flange bolt
- (2) Filter base Fleetguard 014278400-S
- (1) Cat Filter 1R-0750
- (1) Baldwin water/sep BF1212
- (1) Fitting between both filter bases: Boss Male X Boss Male #10 = BRE3474-10-10
- (2) Fitting out of the ends of the Filter bases: Male tube X male tube O-ring #10 to a #6 Jic = BRE6400-6-10
- (4) You can use 90degs or 45degs: #6 push- lock 90 deg fem JIC = PAR33982-6-6
- (2) Compression fitting: (2) 3/8 compression to a #6 JIC
OR you use
- (2) 3/8 compression fitting to a 3/8 barb and do with out the 90*
First, as seen in the pictures attach the filters together with the piggy-back O-Ring fitting and attach the bases to your mount. (BRE3474-10-10)
Then, Install (2) 90* push lock fittings onto the bases (inlet and outlet). These fittings should be facing the frame-rail once installed. (PAR33982-6-6)
Remove your rear two seat retaining bolts and replace them with the longer bolts/washers. (M8X25 flange bolt)
Then, attach your mount to the extended threads from the seat bolts under the truck:
Using a small hard line cutter (can be found at home depot for about $6-7), cut your fuel line adjacent to your filter heads and install the 3/8” compression to -6 fitting, followed by the -6 90 (PAR33982-6-6) onto the compression fitting facing the other:
Do the same on the other side:
Install your push-lock hose:
Install your Filters: (Cat Filter 1R-0750 & Baldwin water/sep BF1212)
If you’ll notice in the last picture, my compression fitting is rubbing my return line. To fix this, I ran a zip tie around the fitting and line, then wrapped a zip tie between them to space them out, tightened and clipped.
Once you’ve reached this stage, you’re going to need to prime your fuel system for a couple minutes to fill the filters and restore pressure. I primed my system (Key ON but not started) for one minute, then bumped the motor to reset my fuel pressure gauge which still read 1psi. I primed the system for another minute and bumped it again, fuel pressure read 9psi so I started the truck and let it run for a couple minutes while I Inspected for leaks.
If no leaks are found, you’re done!
I also installed a Baldwin PF7977 in the stock location and, after a full day of driving on the system, recheck for leaks. I have no leaks in mine and, using my STOCK lift pump, am still running 10 psi through the three filters.
