The Driven Diesel Fuel Tank / Pre-Pump Kit (commonly referred to as the Hutch Mod) is the first step in the fuel system upgrade process. This kit includes all of the parts necessary to eliminate in the fuel circuit before the electric fuel pump (suction side) and add additional fuel filtration. Air in diesel fuel causes noisy operation and can damage the fuel injectors. This kit fits both the Super Duty Trucks and Excursions.IMPORTANT NOTES:
- Some CAB AND CHASSIS trucks may require more than the standard 15' of hose. If you are using this kit on a CC truck with a "behind the axle" fuel tank, please take a measurement from the fuel tank to the fuel pump (along the frame, the way the hose would route) and confirm whether the standard 15' hose length will work for you, or if you need the longer 25' length.
- This kit is only rated for B20 Bio-Diesel. This is primarily due to the B20 rating Baldwin places on their filters and not the provided hose. We are not aware of any appropriate pre-pump style filters that will work with higher concentrations of Bio-Diesel. If you are running Bio-Diesel, please be mindful of your filter service intervals and periodically check your hoses for signs of damage from the fuel.
- This kit is NOT required with installations utilizing an AirDog or FASS.
- E-SERIES VAN: This kit does NOT fit the E-Series Van due to the different configuration of the fuel tank. The van fuel tank has a baffled pan around the pickup assembly that interferes with the extended return, and the installation instructions were written for a Pickup/Excursion. If you wish to use this kit in your van, you will NOT be able to use the extended return tube, and your installation may differ somewhat from the instructions due to the location of the van fuel tank and differences in the van frame (the kit does fit).
As an upgrade, we recommend also adding the optional ball valves. They make servicing the filters a much cleaner experience! We recommend TWO of these valves (inlet and outlet) with the Pre-Pump kit.
