Default Relocating The FC Spin On Fuel Filter

MY THANKS GO TO MIKE HOHNSTEIN FOR THIS MODIFICATION. THE SPIN ON FUEL FILTER ON AN FC MODEL ‘BIRD IS LOCATED INSIDE OF THE ENGINE DOGHOUSE COVER AT THE REAR OF THE ENGINE AS SEEN ABOVE AND IT CAN BE VERY MESSY TO CHANGE. SO I MOVED IT TO PROPANE COMPARTMENT NEXT TO THE WATER SEPARATOR FUEL FILTER, CLOSE TO THE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP THAT IS INSTALLED RIGHT BEFORE THE WATER SEPARATOR FILTER. DIRECTLY ABOVE THE WATER SEPARATOR FILTER IS A SWITCH THAT CAN ACTIVATE THE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP THAT AIDS IN FILLING BOTH FILTERS, SO THE PRIMER PUMP IS NO LONGER NEEDED AND IS HIDDEN BEHIND THE WATER SEPARATOR. THE DRAIN ON THE INJECTOR PUMP IS STILL UTILIZED WHEN PRIMING THE FILTERS AND PURGING AIR FROM THE SYSTEM, BUT THERE IS NO MORE DIRTY FILTERS BEING CARRIED FROM INSIDE OF THE ‘BIRD AND SPINNING THE NEW FILTER ON IS A LOT EASIER. THE CATERPILLAR GLASS WATER SEPARATOR FILTER WAS ELIMINATED AS IT ISN’T NEEDED WITH THE LARGE DAHL/BALDWIN FILTER.
(Sorry about the all Caps, this is a copy of the text from the photo web site and it is easier than retyping all of it again)
