Adding goldenrod type fuel filter???

Pic 1 What type of fuel fitting this is on a 2004 windsor?

Pic 2 Can I remove my OEM fitting and move it to the goldenrod before my OEM seperator, and plumb them together this way?

I thought goldenrod filters were for stationary tanks not vehicles?

First pic looks like a Ford type fuel filter connection. It's a quick disconnect type I believe. Many people have added a golden rod. I did and mounted it next to my AirDog fuel pump above my fuel tank.

They are available in 3/4" and 1" NPT threads the other support should be fine but there are a hard to locate support for the housing as well. I would suggest their bowl wrench as well as spare bowl gasket these are added in some spare filter listings. An entire spare unit is pretty cheap.

I can't say much about the fitting other than that is not factory, someone modded something along the line. That is a fairly generic filter head however.

I have also added a Goldenrod housing on my Diplomat, but rather than using the Goldenrod filter as shown, I selected a "screen" element filter to act as my pre-filter for everything approaching my FASS pump. I didn't want to restrict the flow too much, but did want to trap anything large enough to be easily visible that might be coming out of my tank. I'm STILL dealing with large quantities of some kind of flaky brown stuff (not rust) coming from the tank. I catch around a couple tablespoons of the stuff for every 100 gallons consumed.

As for using the goldenrod on a stationary system versus an RV.... Not much difference in the application, it is a housing and a filter, processing what passes through it. It doesn't care whether it is moving or not.

I re-read your question. Can't remember name of the fittings on OEM filter but there's a way to release them. Then remove the hopefully metal fitting that screws into housing to identify the threads. When I added my Racor priming pump filter housing I took it to truck parts supply that can make hoses. They set me up with the proper fittings . You may need ones to adapt to NPT if OEM filter is not NPT. Sorry I don't know what threads are in your old filter housing. I would rather take on the job on if standard hydraulic fittings were used for fuel rather than those quick connects pressed into fuel lines. Not something you want to start tearing into 24hrs before leaving for a trip if you don't have the parts you need in hand.
