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.

Overall a good package
I would give this 5 stars but my issue was with the fuel line they give you and the way they want you to hook it up to the fuel pickup. Sliding the hose over the pickup tube was difficult to say the least. I tried boiling the hose and soaking it in fuel. Still couldn’t get it more than 1/4 inch over the ridge that the factory fitting hook in to. Kit should come with a factory quick connect to make this easier. Other than that it’s a a decent setup. My stock pickup filter screens were pretty bad. Truck was running around 62psi fuel pressure at idle before. Still running he same amount after install.

Very satisfied with quality, instructions, and ease of doing business. Smooth transaction.
Hutch Mod kit fit my 2002 7.3 Excursion perfect. Having piece of mind that in tank screens are no longer an issue and ability to change filter simply from under my 4 post lift rather than dropping the fuel tank is well worth time and money. Recommend to anyone trying keep the 7.3 alive forever.

'Working perfectly!
Beside reading the attached literature, I also watched a few Youtubes, which helped. I chose to go after the tank without dropping the tank, by lifting the bed. That has its challenges too. I did the harpooning too. Today I returned from a multi-hundred mile camping trip up a high mountain and had all the power we needed to tow the trailer up those switchbacks. 'Had spare fuel in fuel cans just in case something went wrong, but didn't need that fuel. The Hutch Mod is better than factory original, in my opinion. Two tools I did not have before starting this were the fuel line disconnect tool, and the PVC cutter to harpoon the filler and vent tubes.

Yes, I would buy this again as all the parts are there ready
Great directions. I used you tube videos for tips and tricks to remove fuel tank etc. Common problem issues have been getting the tank ring back on and getting the tank hold down straps back on. I had no problems getting the big black ring onto tank when I was putting things back together. I marked on the tank scratch marks before taking off the ring to let me know the fully tight end point when putting the ring back on. Also I marked exactly where the ring came off...i.e. at what point the threads disengaged so I would know where to start the threads when putting the tank ring back on. Also, I heated the ring with a heat gun to expand it before putting it on the tank. If you do these things and put downward pressure on the ring as you put it back on you should have an easy time of it. The hold down straps went on easy enough. Just dont tighten any of them until all are threaded in partially. Pushing the fuel line onto the tank fitting was tough even after heating it with hot water. I felt like I was destroying the fuel line trying to get it onto the tank nipple. Perhaps next time I would lubricate the nipple first with diesel fuel or gasoline or grease. The fuel line went on easily to the fuel pump nipple since it is a smaller diameter fitting. I filled the fuel filter with fuel before screwing it as per directions. This helps speed up the flushing of air out of the lines. After nearly 200,000 miles on my truck the fuel filters in the tank were surprisingly clean. Almost like new. The plastic pick up was virtually like new. Not brittle or damaged etc.

Thanks for your review and purchase with Diesel Power Products! Great information about the installation, thank you! Happy to hear it went well and it is working for you. Consider yourself lucky that the in-tank screens were not clogged. As I am sure you saw in plenty of YouTube videos, as the tank de-laminates it will cause those to clog, even on trucks with much less miles than yours. Added filtration is always a plus as 7.3 injectors are not cheap.

Hello, I want to know if that Driven Diesel Fuel Tank / Pre Pump Kit can be installed in my 2001 Ford F350 Super Duty, 81"" bed, 7.3 L Powerstroke Engine. I have the fuel tank out of the truck and I'm thinking to replace the system inside the tank (the one which has two small screen filter inside the fuel tank in the same fuel sender unit) for this one. Can I install your kit using the Fuel Sender cap the truck comes with? Thanks & regards?

There should be no fitment issues on your Cab Chassis style truck. However some do require more than the 15' of hose included in the kit. Be sure to select the extra 10' of hose to make sure you have enough.

Is this available with ONLY the in tank parts? I can't find that. I don't need the hose and filter parts. That is not really part of the Hutch mod. See Diesel Tech Ron's hutch mod videos.?

We do not offer it separately no.

I recently installed the Hutch mod, the gas filter did not go on smoothly. It seems a little like the threads on the filter or mount were slightly different, With little choice I tighten in on but not like any oil filter I have ever changed. The rest of the mod was fantastic with everything there and everything fitting perfectly with good instructions and pics. thanks Don?

What is your question?

Will I need to drop the tank in order to install the lines to the pre-filter? I run regular diesel and not biodiesel.?

Yes, the tank will need to be lowered on the truck.

Most ""hutch modification"" info I have seen online includes replacing the stock black plastic fuel pick up screen foot. It seems to me that this is not a good idea because eventually this will again get old and brittle and break off again leaving you running out of fuel again before the fuel tank is empty. I have not seen your instructions so do not know if you recommend replacing the black stock pock up screen or not. Do you recommend it? If not, how far from the bottom of the fuel tank does your pick up tube come ??

In accordance with the instructions, we recommend replacing the stock plastic black pick up foot. Driven Diesel mentions this in Step #12 and in Figure #8. As for it becoming old and brittle over time, that is just the nature of the beast. Parts wear out over time, rubber becomes brittle. Not sure if it will work, but here is a link to the instructions, hopefully that answers your question. -BL https://www.strictlydiesel.com/images/PDFSpecs/Driven%20Diesel_DD-73FS-TKF-v3.pdf

I have a 2000 crew cab short bed truck. Do I need the extra hose or will it fit with the included one??

Should fit just fine, usually the only time the extra hose is needed is if it is going on a Cab and Chassis truck like a tow truck. DppSands

Would I need extra length fuel hose on my 2000 crew cab dually??

Wouldn't be a bad idea to get it just in case. Usually only needed on the longer wheel base trucks like a tow truck. But a little extra wouldn't be a bad thing. DppSands

Is this a direct replacement fit, or will the pickup tubing need to be modified so it doesn't hit the bottom of the tank??

This is not necessarily a direct replacement. You do need to modify the pick up tube. -MC
