Well, any elaboration by me beyond why the hell you'd want to spend 500 bucks on a fuel filter/water separator is purely speculation.
The AD150's and 100's use pushlock fittings, and feed at about 20PSI, a system that then takes the fuel and pressurizes it to 60ish right?
So the factory pump with approximately three times the suction power is sucking on a line with pushlock fittings.
From a strictly mechanically theorized standpoint, that just doesn't sound like it would separate air. Sounds like it might even make the situation worse.
It will not work alone as a lift pump. Beyond the possible ability to limp the truck home, IF you carry the hose to bypass the factory pump on the rail.
So... It's a 500 dollar water separator/filter base...
I have one on my truck, bought during an ignorant moment back when I believed everything the guy on the other end of the phone told me.
My truck smokes just as much as it did before it. I don't get any better MPG's. And it's noisy... Oh, and if it quits workin or blows a fuse I'll burn up the factory lift pump tryin to pull fuel through it...
There are much better options available, both DIY
and marketed, than a 500 filter/separator base.
And I'm bitter about some of the things I spent money on before I found the "search" tab lol.
