Finally got some shop time today. Here is the E Fuel with bracket and pretty Alum Fittings. Tried to make it as small as possible and a very simple bracket to mount both Pump and Filter and Regulator. More photos here. https://www.facebook.com/groups/496753857038776/ Dave

Well 2 days driving on the OBS Efuel kit. Starts better....runs smoother especially at low RPM's chugging around town. Looks like it may be a go...I will work on pricing and within a week you OBS guys can use a V4 with my Efuel kit!!!! Thank You Ski Sky Jason for prodding me to do this. Dave

Thanks Dan. I will ask for your help when I am ready. The reason I have kept this here and Grease Addicts is that it is a small group. I now need to price all the parts...get 20 or so of everything in stock....put a few together...put the photos in an instruction format....then let it rip.

Releasing the product to a large crowd would just get me orders that I could not fill right away.....and I want the first sales to be shipped same day and impress the customer.

I am measuring hoses today for the SS hoses routed the way I want them. Checking on the cost of the crimping equipment so I can make my own hoses during the R and D phases of things.

I will keep all you guys updated on what we are doing..

Thanks,Dave

I do have 2 filters...look at the clear filter before the SD pump. It is a wix 33972.
50 microns. Clear housing. If it gets water and dirt then I would put on a better prefilter. Working on cost now.

Looking at Baldwin BF1212 prefilter. Passes over 200gpm so it will not be a strain on the pump on the intake side.

This will be a Efuel kit that is quality but affordable so I will start with the wix 33972 and offer the Baldwin as an option..

Keep it up with the input..that is why I am posting this stuff...for your better ideas.

Thanks,
Dave

Here is what my friends at Strictly Diesel say about the BF1212

So...there is nothing wrong with the BF1212 in reality, you just prefer a filter with a smaller micron rating. I would caution you about running tighter filters PRE-PUMP. The tighter the filter, the more restriction it shows the pump. Suction side restriction is a very fast way to kill an inline wet motor electric fuel pump. In addition, just because you have a 10 micron (or even a 2 micron) filter before your pump doesn't mean you won't have to change the factory filter element. You will increase the service interval, but I would still recommend checking and replacing the stock element because the filter element material (even if not clogged) will start to break down over time.

Of course, there is the chance you are using this filter POST-PUMP. In that case, you should know that both the Baldwin and the Fleetguard (Cummins) filter you refer to are designed as SUCTION SIDE WATER SEPARATORS. They will handle the pressure and will filter OK on the pressure side, but the water separator efficiency is seriously compromised if not under suction.

Lastly, on that BF1212...
86.82% efficient at 4 micron
99.% efficient at 20 micron
1psid @ 210gph

This is a great filter for Pre-Pump applications because of the high flow rate, small pressure drop, good filtration and good water removal. We've been using them in our pre-pump kit for years with fantastic success.
