I am seriously thinking about installing a pre-filter system consisting of an electric fuel pump and filter/water separator on my AC7000 maroon belly (Ser#45**) tractor in the fuel line from the tank that goes to the box filter. I need a better way of controlling water contamination than with the box filter as this tractor sits a lot and is subjected to condensation.
System would be as follows:
1- Electric fuel pump - 34-gph, 7-10 psi (in front of --)
2- Racor filter/separator - 15-gph/5-lph, (output connected to the existing box filter)
3- All plumbing associated with the above would be 1/4" (existing line from the tank to pump would not be changed)
My questions are; 1- is this reasonable? 2- will it work okay? 3- any interference with the engine injection system? 4- any other problem(s)?
I am open to suggestions or comments.
Thank you, Farmer AK
