Faced with utter stupidity, in shit-u-ations like this, remember that marketing wanks think selling Juice Bags with a DRM license is a good idea.


Was a kinder simpler time when men were men and sheep were scared manufactured would kiss you before they you nowadays you can't even get a piece of gear with an inline fuel filter. Of course, all the fuel filters are in the tank because of high pressure injection lines. However, if you got a 5 16 rubber hose going from the pump to the fuel rail chances, are it's not high enough pressure that you can't filter it right there in the line? It's so bad? The fuel filter isn't even mentioned on the service manual. It's a non-user serviceable part.

Anybody what's been on a farm knows, there's generally a thief. Tank nasty old farmer's trick is to keep a thief's tank a fuel around you put all the dirty dregs in an easily accessible tank. Somebody comes in the middle of the night to steal a dram of your finest gets a nasty surprise. I amalgamate my thief tank in my regular tank.

Just don't let it get so low that i get sediment in my tank, but if i do in my equipment no big deal because all my equipment has easily serviceable in-line fuel filters right wrong. Go some ignorant engineer doesn't always ask from his elbow, backed by a smarmy salesman, puts the filter in the gas tank and then puts a gland on there, which you got ta beat on like a monkey at the zoo and she still won't come got the 18 Inch pipe wrench got the old slag hammer that was my nickname in university. Got the punch, got the jesus curses and still she will not come. Maybe it's left hand thread nah.

It ain't left hand thread it's just on there forever, but partner have i got a trick for you as witness by the apprentice marks. I give her a tentative tabby tap tap. What we're going to do is use the only bloody thing with alice. Krapko makes any good at all rock hoes.

You get these without the branding they're, just not as cool. I wrap that around like yeah. I think you're rolling what i'm smoking you cinch up on the old lob star here, hmm and then. Ah, she ain't gon na.

Go if somebody else was doing the job. I'd suggest peeing on it, but since i got ta touch, it always grips better. That way, we're gon na need a little tappy tap tap action. These guys get enough jerk materials.

If they see my face, it'll be like the ark of the covenant, if you've ever done any evil in your life, you're dead, you, dear john, you just put some gloves on here - don't want to fade out my tattoos sick, tads bruh. Let me tell you nobody with you when you got sharpie tattoos on your arm by your daughter. Nobody, you, when you put tactical gloves on you, wan na make something of it first day with my new cameraman he's, nicknamed the manual he's nicknamed dewclaw. For a reason.

Do you want to take that who's off there, the noozle for the who's who's with those? Don't you need some sort of special thing. I don't know right into the tank, not to worry it's proprietary. Oh, it's not even a filter. It's a screen! You dirty cold.

It's a towel neck, it's a mystery wrapped in an enigma. That's one of those things make you wish that a robot would take your job. Look at this piece of you see. It's got like a float in there right with a big arm.


That's oh for sakes! So we got to take the float off in order to get it out of the tank, so that means that they would have had to assemble that, oh, maybe there's just enough room without all this valence on there just to wedge it in kind of sidewards managed To get her out swab the deck there in the bottom, with a little homemade tampon, not tea bag, some schmoo in there, but the filter. Is it good? Is it bad who knows schrodinger's filter, we won't know until we see a new filter to compare it. So, unfortunately, out here on the outer rim, it takes me a few months to get it covered. There's the high pressure pump same as every other pump, for some reason requires the filter on the inside of the tank.

This deserves a hearty laugh. It up you. In addition to a you, goofs no reason for that at all: none give your head a shake dirty bastards, oh right, the real reason is money: let's get this back in see how long she'll run and we know how to do it now. We know the filters are coming and so forth.

So uh yeah we broke the prime directive. If it ain't broke, don't fix it until it is.

    Fuel pump "modules" that include the sock (coarse filter) and fuel filter (medium) pump itself & sending unit (gauge) are an all in 1 solution. The real trick is making sure you can get the lines off by sweet talking the clips that are frozen in with very fine sediment most of the time. Have an extra set of clips handy (using the one of several special tools) helps keeping you from having a line blow off if you reuse or monkey it up trying to plumbers wrench the mess.

    Same thing with those plastic diesel filters if you try to squeeze the whole plastic cap like that then you're just making the work harder for yourself.

    Lol. How can you cry? They at least gave you an access panel.
    My 03 Dakota has the regulator built in as well.
    You have to drop the tank with the truck very high off the ground.
    The crossmember has to be removed first…. that’s hardened riveted to the frame.
    The fuel hoses are special heat shrunk plastic that takes the hand of god to install on the metal lines.
    It took a week to make it actually serviceable. Need to diagnose / change a part is a simple affair now. I can even pump fuel from one vehicle to another or drain the tank so I don’t have to carry a large gas can anymore for daily purposes.
    Access panel was added on re assembly
    The engineers are now working overtime to fuq us.
    BUT you will see signs where the engineers try to help us where they must of had pity and it was all they could do, but at least it helps make it possible and slightly less painful.
    It’s rare though.
    Ask me how hard it was making a pre 04 Dakota with factory fuel injection and ecu fully programmable with full access.
    Never-mind, don’t.

    That screen isn't the filter you're thinking of. That just protects the pump from ingesting any sediment in the tank. There still is an inline filter somewhere between the gas tank and the fuel injectors. Don't use Fram filters.

    The problem with stuff now is the failure points aren't as obvious anymore (because there's more). If my '74 Lemans didn't start there were three things to check and I could do them all on the side of the road with crap I had in the trunk. Now if your transport goes down you have to contact the mothership not only to find out what's broke but if you have permission to fix it.

    So clearly you don't own a GMC or you would have already seen this exact same anal probing "pump in the tank with a sock on it" crap. The only difference is GMC didn't have the decency to put a hole in the floor of their Yukon to access the pump. you gotta drop the damn tank to get at the pump.

    The Prime Directive. Prohibiting the United States and its allies from interfering with the internal and natural development of alien civilizations.
    The Prime Directive applies particularly to civilizations which are below a certain threshold of technological, scientific and cultural development.
    Today's example on August 19, 2021 is AFGHANISTAN. The Graveyard of Empires.
    It only took us 20 years to figure it out. Give us a break.

    John Deer engine department: the fuel system will be destroyed by a 1/4 of a micron partical, we need super filers.
    The CEO, just put a sock on the pump,theywill have to by a new machine in 3 years

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony van Hamond says:

    WTF that looks like a normal pickup mesh/sock thingy so you suck more of the shit out of your tank. are you sure there isn't a real inline filter somewhere else? Forgive my ignorance on farming equipment but this looks really dumb.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Miles Gerschefske says:

    Okay the prescreen filters I kind of understand, they put the pump in the fuel to help with cooling, ideally to keep junk out of the pump it needs to be before the pump, so therefore the whole job needs to be in the tank. Atleast you've got an access whole how many pickup truck beds have been at the wrong end of the sazall because the consumer dont want to take an extra hour to drop the tank

    Old lazy mechanic’s trick for a plugged fuel sock. Remove gas cap so’s not to split the tank, then shoot however much air pressure your compressor will suffer into the fuel line. It will ether blow the sock off the pump or cause a rapid disassembly of the pump. If it the pump comes apart, it was defective 🤫

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryan Condrey says:

    I've been toying with the idea of a gasoline polishing system to run in parallel to the existing fuel system with easy to replace filters. Would run on an older lower pressure fuel pump and every thing assembled with hose clamps. Heck even install several filters in parallel with each other to catch more contaminants. Tee suction side of fuel system return line from injection rail (lower pressure) to feed pump and dump into fuel filler hose when polished.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew AWF says:

    Most of the sock filters have the same size ring for the bottom of the pump. Swapping it out for a larger size sock can preserve your tats and sanity longer from contamination. Just be sure the sock filter has clearance between the float and the bottom of the tank if it has a recess it fits into like a sump.

    The worst pump filter assembly design I encountered was a late 90s Ram 1/2 ton that the filter is the whole bottom of the pump. Basically looked like a mounted 4 inch round air filter added after a long night drinking shots of whiskey and race gas.

    Add a remote filter housing bolted to a solid point and route new sections of hard line to it if you plan on keeping the equipment.

    New stuff is nothing but engineered to make it past the warranty and cost minimal during to fill the coffers. Engineers designing vehicles and equipment should have to work on their designs before it is released to the public. Problems with being a contortionist and the sailor's vocabulary are kept to a minimum. 😁

    Im surprised you did not mention the access cover is not even where the jeslus cap is..you have to struggle around that lip.
    I cant tell you how often i have cursed the engineers in a volley of angry expletives emanating out of some recess of a vehicle.
