I have air leaks
on my Ford Lehman
120 so I am pulling everything apart and re-doing it. On paper it's fairly normal: Tank-algae X-Carter electric
pump-valve-Racor 900-valve-lift pump-CAV filters-injector pump. The hoses were run very poorly startin well above the tank drooping well below it with poor spliced hoses for the return lines etc.
in the Racor
looks great but when I pulled the CAV filters off there was water
and some trash. I am not sure how it got past the Racor
? is the 900 just to big? I read somewhere the turbine effect will not work with this low a circulation 1.7 gph
I am thinking about removing the Algea X and the 2 valves(filter is 3-4' above the tank) I am thinking of ways to make the system simpler KISS, So I have a few questions:
Why wouldn't a 2 micron Racor 900 work without the CAV filters?eliminating them all together.
Why not eliminate the mechanical lift
pump? when the diaphragm
fails won't the electric pump
fill the oil
pan up with diesel
when you're trying to get home? A spare electric pump
would be easy to carry and replace.
What about replacing the CAV filters with one Raco 200R or similar filter?
I would like to simplify the whole thing of course I can just put it back the way it was. I hope I found the air leak, a oring was missing from the bolt that goes through the CAV filter.
Proposed setup Tank-Racor 900-electric pump-injector pump
or as above except with a Racor 200R after the electric
