duel fuel filters/pumps

My version of my dual filter/pump setup. Correct me if I am wrong. I'm going to start with the ITP 5/8" Fuel Tank Pickup, then I'm going to run a 5/8 fuel line to my filter base with a fuel water sep filter then I'm going to run 5/8 line to an Y which will run 5/8 line into dual super duty pumps and then 5/8 line back to another Y back down to a filter base with an fuel filter on it and from there it will run 5/8 line to a Y and into each fuel rail. I will then buy the ITP diesel fuel bowl delete and regulated return kit. I will probably end up getting all my hose and fittings at napa or someplace similar. Any suggestions on what hose?

ITP 7.3L Regulated Return Kit

Re: duel fuel filters/pumps

For your water fuel sep filter base use a dual in and out base. You can the plug one of the in ports but use the two out ports to go to the two pumps rather than going to a y fitting. Then after the pumps do the same but in reverse with the second filter base. Two in from the pumps and plug one out. The plugs are included with the base BTW. Why buy the kit when you are already doing so much of the work. All you have left is remove the bowl and install the two fuel lines into the front fuel ports and then hose to the rear ports into the regulator as well as the factory return line. You actually are going to be doing all that work anyways with the kit. Other than hose and fittings you only need the regulator to do it. On your two pumps its a good idea to have check valves in each of the lines that come out of the pumps so as to prevent a loop back should one happen to fail. Also consider that once you go from a single 5/8s going to two will not give you any more flow as you are limited by the single 5/8s from the tank.

AS for the fittings going into the filter bases and back out look at this one by Marty that is what I am spekaing of. Instead of using Y fittings use dual in/out filter bases.

Re: duel fuel filters/pumps

IMO you will always want to be able to suck more from the tank than you would ever need on the pressure side of the pumps. So going smaller like above on the dual lines after the pumps would not be a hindrance. Well it would a very small amount as 2 3/8 and fittings can technically not flow quite as much as a single 5/8, as I think Charles pointed out in a thread somewhere, but still plenty for almost any use.

Re: duel fuel filters/pumps

Looks to me like if your buying a fuel y then you dont neet the bowl delete. If you buy all you fittings for the heads all youll need is a regulator. so you dont need the rr kit if you can peice it together yourself.

Re: duel fuel filters/pumps

When you pick your bases just make sure the threading is what you want for the filters you plan to use. The ones I am going with are 4770 /24770 with 1-14 threads. The ones you listed are a finer threading of 3/4-16. No issue as long as you get your filters accordingly

Re: duel fuel filters/pumps

5/8" lines will never work with stock superduty pumps.

Is there a reason you want to run dual stock pumps? Redundancy, backup, etc...??

You have a crewcab short bed, you don't have a WHOLE lot of room to work with.... just a little fyi from someone who has done quite a few setups....
