Fuel System Stage 1: In-tank & Pre Pump

I did my in tank and pre pump mods last night.

I purchased the in tank kit from dennis at ITP: http://www.itpdiesel.com/store.php?c...on=show_detail

I opted to purchase it without the filter head, filter and bracket and got that from IH, and made my own bracket.

I'm using the Fleetguard version of the 1212 filter, Dennis gave me some specs on it compared to the Baldwin unit and it seems like a good option, althought the Baldwin is a little more efficient.

Dennis' kit was great, parts were perfect, good quality rubber hose and clamps, pickup tube fit perfect, exactly what the stock one measured with no modifications.

Only thing I would have liked is more pics Dennis... (I hate reading, I like picture puzzles )

That frickin skid plate is 10X heavier than the tank!!!!

After seeing the CRAP in my tank I'm really glad I got a pre pump filter now. There was some nasty turds in there.

Truck seems quieter now that I FINALLY got the air out of it. Seems like it took forever.

Did the harpoon tank vent mod too, hopefully I can fill er all the way up in less than an hour now

Good to hear, I should be doing mine this weekend. Not looking forward to dropping that tank, but it's got to be done.

I like that kit, but I think I am going to just get the pickup and return from Dennis and make the rest of it myself.

Not really, I took a few of the good in the tank and the complete modified pickup assembly.

I will be more in depth on stage 2, DIY reg return.

Talking Re: Fuel System Stage 1: In-tank & Pre Pump

I did mine last Sat night, I came here at like 8:30 and did'nt leave till after midnight. And yes the skid plate weighs more than the tank, I did mine the old fashion way. Take out bolts let tank drop, do stuff and man handle it back up into place, no jack. I really like the difference, less noise. Seems to run a lot smoother and may be a bit more power. Ofcorse I did the reg. fuel system Friday night.

I've only assisted on three tank drops/mods on F-series trucks and if you intend to use a jack you should IMO use a craddle around the area of the pickup on those flimsy plastic tanks. They give a lot and you could push that black pickup up on the tubing and it might be off the bottom when the tank is filled or even damage things. That foot seems to be designed to be snugly against the bottom of the tank even when full so all those little "Nubs" keep major debris from blocking the pickup screen in the foot. We used a 2x12 about 30 inches long and two 2x4's(one near each end of the 2x12) so the tank rested on the 2x4's with the pickup in the middle. Again IMHO that craddle needs to be there when lowering, have the tank out, or are putting it back in i.e. anytime the tank is not secured with the straps. This is not something IMO to be done correctly with much less than 3 people. The first one I did only had two people and was sort of a pain, but was doable.

Re: Fuel System Stage 1: In-tank & Pre Pump

It was fine with 2 people for me.

I also didn't see the tank flex AT ALL.

The BIG key is to not have much, or any, fuel in the tank when you drop it.

With no fuel it's just a big hunk of hard plastic.
