Ok FINALLY I got a day with descent weather and got my 2 micron Caterpillar fuel filter.

Ok so it started with a baldwin FB1311 fuel filter base. Then I used a o-ring JIC #10 to 6 fitting with the 3/8th adapter.





This is what it looks like mounted on the L-brackets.



This is what it looks like installed:




And the clearance with the filter is not too bad:


Total install time was about an hour and that is counting the 1/2 hour my father and I spent trying to get a broken tap out of one of the holes. I half filled the filter with some Power Service additive for diesel and the FASS HPFP filled the filter in no time.

Now I know why did I mount a 2 micron filter before my 7 micron canister filter?

1. Cat uses these as stand alone filters and they can handle a good amount of crap.

2. I would change the canister filter 2 or 3 times before I would change the believe it or not cheaper Cat filter cause of the capacity differences.

3. I am lazy.

Looks nice man. I like the mounting Location you picked. I thought about mounting mine their but when did the install I was still using factory lift pump and lines, so I kinda had to go after the cannister without replumbing the whole truck. Now that my airdog has arrived I might move it.

Thanks man. Originally I wanted to mount it inside the rail but I honest could not find the space. I like it were it is easy to get to. Really odd but since I put it on I am getting better rail pressure...go figure:woot:

I've got the GDP 2 micron setup and it's great. Finer filtration, no matter what brand, is a good thing!!!:thumbsup:thumbsup

Would the filter be the 1R-0750?? Where'd you pick it up?
Yep, that's the right P#, but I don't know where to get 'em.

Yep, I got it at a local Cat dealer. I have a few around me.

I went with cat cause of their tight standards, these other filters will fit. Definition of 'absolute filtration' may vary or some are multi-pass vs. single pass etc. ect..

I only skimmed this. As you know, I have been heavily interested in the other related thread on the AD.

Are you putting this after the AD or are you using the stock lift pump?

What is that in line for?

Yeah Yeah. . I know Page Jumper :hehe:

Edit: Never Mind! I read the whole thing. You're running a FAS and that's a strainer.

But why the strainer? Just a junk catcher?

I am running a FASS HPFP, which is the fass pump less the filters. The strainer is just to protect the pump from anything larger enough to cause damage to the pump.

What are you maintaining for pressure? I'm assuming you're running the 3/8 " all the way to the filter canister? Did you do 3/8 to the cp, as well?

Yeah. . I bad

So I can expect to suck up a powerjoke when I pass one then. :hehe:

I'll have to read through the list, but it looks like a plain old 3/8 inline fuel filter. I would imagine that would work OK. But all this makes for high maint. I was trying to reduce it and make filter changes easier. I fit the #3 catagory you mentioned in the opening post. . . . Laaaaazzzzzeeeeee Or is it old? They kinda run together

NOW all this good info shows up :banghead:

How about running the AD100 like I already have and then going to the cat filter? As you mentioned in the other thread, I loose the heater and the aledged superior water separation and indicator. But if the AD and the cat filter does same the job, if not better. Right?

Even at the price of injectors, all the filters start to pile up too. It's too bad I have the AD 100 already. I would rather see the cat filter first, but I doubt I could draw through it efficiently.
