Racor Fuel System Upgrade Part 2/3

This is part 2 of the 3 part presentation on upgrading the Racor Winn fuel system to the new 790R30 filter system. This section deal with the Golden-Rod filter addition that is before the Racor filter. I added a T connection to the Racor Filter output line to add a vacuum gauge. An alternative would be to use the opposite/redundant output port on the Racor Filter and plumb that for the gauge. Racor makes remote sensors for checking the state of the filter but they are almost as expensive as the filter unit so I used a gauge. At the end of the narrative there is a 6 min video showing the filter in static and with the engine running with an explanation of the operation.

I can truly say that this is the first upgrade, and
One of the best and most helpful after I purchased this Monaco signature 10 years ago from the Original owner N.W. of Atlanta.

The original had a clear plastic bowl with a screen for larger particles and it had a small crack, leak.

I hate Leaks

Put new fuel filters on, push the purge button.

Ussually 60 seconds at most.

The engine starts right off and off we go.

I would not have a Diesel without.

We see so many posts concerning getting the air out of a fuel system and what stresses & duress and time is lost.
