With the release of the 6.7 Powerstroke, an entire new fuel system was developed for the new Powerstroke engine that was modeled similarly to the competition. This high pressure, common rail fuel system was relatively similar in nature, but still had very obvious distinguishing factors, but unfortunately, has been proven to share some of the misfortunes as the competition, as well. This high pressure system is extremely susceptible to damage with anything less than perfect fuel quality, which rarely exists outside of a laboratory test environment, but fortunately, there is a fix, proper filtration! This kit from DieselSite will deliver not only proper filtration, but also water separation as excessive water in the system will destroy any mechanical part it touches. Safeguard your investment with this simple to install kit.
FAST INSTALL AND UNINSTALL! NO CUTTING OF LINES - OEM STYLE QUICK CONNECTS. THIS SYSTEM INSTALLS OR UNINSTALLS IN UNDER 15 MINUTES. SYSTEM INCLUDES 2 SPARE FILTERS.
The Ford 6.7L engine was outfitted with a completely new type of common rail system from the lift pump, high pressure fuel pump, injectors and fuel filters. What has been discovered is that the fuel system components are very sensitive to water and debris, much more so than previous fuel system designs.
The Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) available to us has always had a propensity to absorb water. While it has always been a good idea for the longevity of diesel injection parts to remove water in the fuel system, negligence can lead to catastrophic failure. The OEM filter simply doesn't remove water or particles in a sufficient enough quantity to completely protect the system. The other thing is that once the "water in fuel" light (WIF) comes on, there is already water passing and damage has already occurred. The way the Ford warranty system works is if there is ANY sign of surface rust on the flow control valve, the system is no longer under warranty. There is no further inspection that will be done, and the dealers are told to not spend any more time on the truck, except to give the customer an estimate for a complete fuel system replacement. This is a cost of $12,000- $18,000 depending on whether you brought it to them when you could still drive it, or the fuel pump went south and damaged even more components.
QUICK CONNECT FITTINGS: The factory fuel lines are connected with "quick connect" style fittings. None of these components, ends, or sections of the fuel line are sold separately by Ford. Instead, you must buy the entire frame rail if you needed one piece. To remedy this, DieselSite made quick connects so the system could be installed without cutting or modifying the factory rail at all.
NO DRILL BRACKET INSTALLATION: The bracket is pre-drilled to line up with existing nuts and bolts on the frame. If you have a stock fuel tank, the install will take you less than 15 minutes. If you have a Titan Fuel Tank, or any other larger aftermarket tank, you'll have to lower the tank a bit to gain access. If you simply remove the straps and lower the front of the tank closer to the ground, you'll gain plenty of access without actually having to disconnect any of the tank connections.
HOW THE FILTER WORKS: There is a separator cone in the bowl of the filter that removes water and all large particles. Then the fuel travels into the upper section through a 2 micron particle separator. At this point, you have very clean, water-free fuel traveling through your system. With a quick peek under the truck you can view the bowl for water and dirt. The water is removed by opening the petcock. The system utilizes a proven Dahl filter after testing several other brands and confirming Dahl was the best choice.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Where is the new filter located in the OEM system?
A: It is installed in series BEFORE the primary filter. Every component in the OEM system is protected from this new filter.
Q: Is there any issue with restriction of flow to the fuel pump?
A: No, the filter's flow capacity far exceeds the flow capacity of the fuel pump. The filter minder is a suction gauge that indicates the suction pressure through the filters.
Q: Do you recommend routing the lines under or over the frame?
A: That is all about personal choice.
