# of fuel filters

Hello I have posted in the past about my 95 dolphin rv that wonít start. I was recently tracing the fuel line from the fuel filter to the fuel tank when I came across a steel plate covering the rubber lines to the steel lines. The question is is there a second fuel filter behind this plate? If not ,could this be a possible point of blockage of fuel to the engine? I have changed everything else associated with the fuel system and it still will not start. Iím thinking that the line is just blocked at this junction. Any advice will be appreciated.

I would almost venture a guess as to this being your problem area. Those rubber lines are the old ones that are affected by the 15% in gas. That softens then enough to block fuel flow. Could even be a filter there.

Ford or Chevy chassis?

According to the Chevrolet P30 Service Manual, there is a filter at the carb inlet (carbureted models) and another in the line along the right side frame rail. I don't know about the Ford chassis but suspect there is a filter somewhere along the fuel line. The Ford chassis of that era was also known to have fuel pump problems and Ford re-designed the pump for the 1996 model year. The pump is in the fuel tank.


In a 1995, I would be suspicious of any rubber fuel line - it's 25 years old!
