That is a AC filter. Originally original equip on Detroits. Throw it away and get a Racor. They are a pain to deal with. Always make a mess when changing.

You know, I'll get flack for this probably but I'd remove it.

My 78 has one filter in the engine compartment, it's easy to get to, easy to change, screw-on like an oil filter. No other filters or pumps.. stock.

That filter you have is nasty, under the bus, old, obsolete, and just another point of possible leaks and sucking air. I'd plumb around it and just have the engine filter OR of you don't have one add a more modern filter near your propane tank. I keep it K.I.S.S. and that system...ain't!

So I ordered the Racor 900 and I'll be installing it tomorrow.
However I ran into a problem when removing the old filter housing and fuel pumps. I'm going to have to replace the fuel pumps as well. dose anyone know what kind of pumps those are? or maybe if there are a replacement that will work?

Picture of the old pump will be needed before anyone could offer a suggestion for a replacement. 43 year old coach that didn't come with pumps other than what was on the power unit, would just be a guess.

Good Move.

Google Facet Fuel pump or lift pump on WOG and you'll find several treads discussing this. You only need 3-4psi really to get the fuel through the filter and up to the engine pump.

Here's some examples of the search - when you research pay attention to the inlet/outlet sizes and locations;
  • A common fuel pump used by BB is a Facet # 40109, NAPA # 6101033.
    It only develops about 2 to 4 psi, but is very helpful for the old 3208, & pushing fuel through the Racor filter.

    These seem to be common p/n's but are different threads?

    Facet 40109 - $45 - Solid State Cube - 12v, 4-7PSI, 32GPH, 3/8-18 INT Thread, 24” Lift min dry, check valve

    NAPA 6101033 - $72.00 - 3/8” Flair Ends, 4.5-9PSI, 15GPH

    Holly Red 12-801-1 - $113 - Max pressure 7psi, 71GPM@4PSI (regulator not required)

Fuel systems are perishable. Periodic renewal and upgrade is expected.
