Finally got my fuel filter bracket made. Tried to make hard lines for it but didn't like them. Had braided SS lines made and they still didn't turn out like wanted but its functional. Hopefully after I get off work in the morning I'll finish getting everything installed.

How are you going to be mounting it?

The fit and finish look great.

Had it powdercoated along with a bunch of horsestall materials. My buddy cut it out on his waterjet. Its mounted to the bottom of the frame just ahead of the fuel tank. Used the three holes on the bottom flange in the second picture to mount it.

OK. My brain was not working and it kept looking like you would have to install it upside down.:doh: That would not have worked for water sep or changing filters. LOL

What are the specs on the 2 filters?
I was looking at a racor twin mount but was thinking
It was over kill unless I went something like 30, then 10
They make a 2 micron but i'd stick it after the pump loser to the cab

Finished it up and went and filled the tank. Truck runs 100% better. Before when I turned the ignition on the fuel pressure gauge would slam 80psi then drop to 65. Now it steadily rises to 65. I knew I had air in fuel problems. Still seems low on power. Might still have an air leak or need new injectors.

When I get on it hard the fuel pressure gauge starts bouncing and it bucks and jerks.

Have you done any tank pick up mods?

When you had it spiking 80 and then coming down to 65 what was the setup? Did you have a pre / post pump filter setup or a fuel bowl or ???

Did you put any check valves on the setup?

Is this the same Stock SD fuel pump that you have been running?

I dont post much, but that is a very nice and compact filtration setup. Dennis told me once that the 7633 filter has a hard time with fuel being pushed through it, I wonder if that factory fuel pump is struggling to push through? Very nice setup though, Im going to redo my setup and do the exact same thing if the factory pump can push fuel through the 7633.

Yes the ITP prepump stuff.

No fuel bowl. The ITP prepump setup.

No check valves.

Replaced the orginal pump maybe two months ago with a new one and picked up 2 mpg.


Had an hour drive to jobsite today pulling trailer, maybe 7k. Still sucking air in from somewhere when its pulling hard. Alot better than it was but still needs some work. I tightened the fittings on front of the fuel rails. I'm wondering if the ones on the rear need to be tightened also.

But EGTs are down, engine is quieter, more power, and I can tell the mileage is up.

Also replaced all the fuel lines with braided SS.
