How important is it to keep the Ford F350 fuel bowl after the greasecar kit has been isntalled. I understand that it has the fuel heater for the winter months. But leaving in central Texas I don't find that to be a need. It does how ever have a large drop in canaster filter that increases fuel filter. Allowing you to go longer with out fuel filter changes.
I'm asking because I've been chasing down a air leak coming from the diesel fuel bowl area for two days. I've used the electric lift pump to pull fuel right from the feel supply hose and no air. So then I by passed the diesel fuel bown and pulled the fuel through I still didn't get any air. So then I attached the diesel fuel back up and I got air. So then I removed the diesel fuel bowl and capped off one end and pulled it down to 10 and it slowly leaked air out of the bowl.
So I took everything off the bowl and placed everything back on and put a healthy amount of silcon on everything, even the drain port in the back. And after allowing it to dry for 24 hours still have a leaky diesel fuel bowl. I thin went out and replaced the diesel fuel filter and oiled up both of the rubber o-rings that came with it. Still have a small air leak.
In short I'm SURE, its coming from the diesel fuel bowl and I'm thinking of just placing it with a high perfomance fuel filter that I have that filters down to 2 micron filter with a water sep on it.
What are you all's thoughts on the matter.
Sorry for the long post.
