I just got the 4770 in with the 3426 and the filter is to big for the base, it looks like it is to big by agout 1/16 of an inch or so on the phone to fleet filter in the morning.Thanks everyone for a great thread. I'm getting ready to do this mod on my 84 M1009. Couple quick questions though:
1) I'm going with the WIX 24770 base but I'm not sure about which filter to use. I plan to run 60/40 Diesel/WMO starting soon. Can I still use the 3 micron 33005 (NAPA 3005) or will I have to step down to the 12 micron 33405 (DAPA 3405). Is there a reason no one has mentioned the 6 micron 33426 (NAPA 3426) that is similar diameter?
2) I've seen pictures of the bleeder valve on one of the output sides but I haven't seen any pictures of the setup for the marine squeeze bulb primer on the input side of this base. Anyone care to enlighten me?
When I did my spin on filter I used wix 24770 head and wix 33005 filter.The head has two input and two outlets,I added a fuel pressure gauge on input side and a fuel pressure gauge on output side,when I see outlet side start to drop Ill change filter.I also monitor input side as I run elect.lift pump with a pre filter so when input press. drops I know its time to change pre filter.How often y'all changing your fuel filters ??
did you check your glow plugs to make sure all are good.
I believe it is around 70 amps at 12V when all 8 plugs are functioning correctly. (not 100% sure on the amps)
