    FLU-419 fuel question - part above filter housing

    I still have a problem to debug with the rear switches. The idle up switch, front bucket control switch (from the backhoe seat), and the accessory hose switch all seem to not work. The rear work lights and tail lights function, however.

    FLU-419 fuel question - part above filter housing

    To update on how my FLU is doing now, may be of use to other people: 1. Mine had the bad transmission shift bushing, that seems to be really common. Replaced that, and my shifting issues went away. Had to make a special tool to compress the shifter spring cap to re-install, that was the hardest...

    FLU-419 fuel question - part above filter housing

    Yep, everyone's project goals are different. I certainly can respect the pure utilitarian, "it just needs to work" thing. For me, this FLU is more than a piece of equipment, I will use it as such, sometimes, but at other times, I'm doing to do weird art stuff with it. These are already strange...

    FLU-419 fuel question - part above filter housing

    Ooh yeah, I think I'll ditch the blackout lighting as well, I have no use for this.

It will be getting a non-military paint job, custom LED lighting, etc.

It's all the add-ons and things that could potentially cause issues (like fuel system leaks originating from this...

    FLU-419 fuel question - part above filter housing

    Ahh, so it measures the pressure difference between before the filters, and after? I'm guessing this gives some sort of indication if the fuel filters are clogged and need replacement, the pressure drop would be larger. Does it flash a light on the dash or something? The fact that it can be...

    FLU-419 fuel question - part above filter housing

    Hi, I'm new here and this is my first post. I bought a FLU419 a few weeks ago, and it has been quite an adventure in learning about these and fixing the issues I've found with it so far. I'm an aerospace guy so it's in my wheel house. I think I got lucky, it has the "Overhauled at RRAD" plates...
