CTD 2-Stage 2 Micron Absolute Fuel Filtration: Baldwin/CAT under truck

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.

Parts List:

- (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.

I have the two baldwin filter bases but dont have the fittings, Hose or hanger. Its a two hour trip for me to get to a place that has all the parts and that is if there are no major tie ups and its not rush hour.. Can you put me in touch with the person who got you your parts and hanger. If the price is right I would give him my business and save me the hassle of driving two hours one way and getting home with the wrong stuff.

Nice idea putting it under the cab and using the seat bolts to attach it. I need to install a second filter (2 mic absolute) since mine is just a 2 mic not absolute

so since these filters are before the stock w/f separator do you still use the stock filter as well?

I guess I was wondering the point of using the stock filter (5-7um) if you've already filtered to 2um. Seems pointless to me unless your using it mostly for a water separator in which case use a cheaper filter.

Mostly cheap insurance. It will be changed with the other two filters every 30K. I think I can afford the extra $3 for the Baldwin unit if i only have to do it once every 3 years. and it's 5um

Sounds reasonable. It's there may as well use it. If nothing else it acts as another water separator.
