So I desided to cut open the filters to show you...Fleetguard FF5613 filter open and exposed...post-2-138698180208_thumb.jpgFleetguard FF5613 media or filter element...

Interesting... I hope you didn't use the same f/w sep again... its not really a very good filter. It's only rated at 50% free water sep at 20GPH, and 0% emulsified water sep.. The FF5613 is a good filter, but is 5um absolute not 3um.

FASS are even worse. The OEM FASS 150 f/w sep isn't even rated by Fleetguard as a F/W sep.. hard to stop water if thats not what it's designed for!Put a Baldwin BF1212 on there, the HF6604 is the best you can do on the final filtration. FASS and AD really screwed up when they picked their filters and thread/gasket sizes.

Is your airdog a 150/150? how do you like it. I converted my fass 95/150 to a 150/150 when the motor started going south. They look the same. How much noise does it make when you turn the key? My old fass started getting loud. Real loud! The new 150 pump they sent me is quiet.

Yea its a 150... Its a good pump been reliable... Makes very little noise at all... From what I learn a loud pump could be cause by fuel restriction... Or just a wore out pump motor.

what about a fass 95 series? what would i need to do to change the fuel filter and f/w seperator over to somethign that is more easily found and also rated to provide good protection to my truck, I finally swapped in some new injectors and i have a VP-44 on the way as well, ide hate to have non standard filters that are more or less crap.
