I recently bought a 6.0 pump and have intentions of putting it on my truck (OBS), what exactly does a regulated return do? and why is it necessary? I am just trying to understand better.
Thank you so much I understand the regulated part now. And as for the pump I only got the frame mounted piece not the bowl too so I am planning to put two spin on CAT filters inline on the way to the engine.Our trucks have a regulated return stock.
Non-return means that fuel pressure is regulated before it is sent to the heads and dead ends there.
Regulated return means that the fuel goes to the heads and the regulator is downstream of the heads. Fuel is sent to the heads and and a return line from the heads goes to the regulator to keep the correct pressure in the heads. Any excess fuel is returned to the tank. This system keeps the pump from deadheading (pushing on fuel that isn't going anywhere).
You don't have to do anything special to add the 6.0 pump other than wire it and connect the fuel supply and return lines to it correctly.
I mean the 6.0 bowl, some people use it. And within reason could you filter too much like would two spin ons be a bad thing?You don't use the bowl with e-fuel. That 6.0 pump (HFCM actually) has a prefilter built into it already, so you really only need a post-pump filter.
I have this setup on my e-fuel.
You are wrong.... My OBS fuel system - Ford Powerstroke Diesel ForumI could be wrong, but I don't think anyone has ever installed a 6.0 fuel bowl on a 7.3, seeing how the 6.0 fuel bowl and oil filter housing are one piece, and if you hacked it up, you would have no way to mount it
Very cool. Thats definitely the only setup I've seen like that. I like how you did it thoughYou are wrong.... My OBS fuel system - Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum

If you're asking does a 7.3 fuel filter fit a 6.0, the answer is noDamn, really? does the fuel bowl filter work in a 7.3 superduty?
Yup that is a p•ss off for sure, as I run a Donaldson spin on pre filter that is a water separator too the stock 6.0 has always been clean and no water in the 6.0 housing. The other thing I did when designing mine was to have the same sized filters, pre and post (pump) so that in a pinch I could spin on the cat as a pre filter. The cat filter I use is very common.The only badside that I've found is that the 6.0 filters are sold in a pair. You can't get the pre-filter that is installed in the HFCM separately from the filter that is in the fuel bowl.
No, he's asking if the secondary 6.0 filter that you get in a pair with the pre-filter will fit the 7.3 SD fuel bowl. The answer is still no, however.If you're asking does a 7.3 fuel filter fit a 6.0, the answer is no
