Nice set up. I'm also looking into replacing the complete feed line too and is this the cheapest dollar for dollar and easiest set up? Did you mount all the filters, pump in the middle of the chassis frame? Does it matter where I mount the Walbro inline pump?

What about others using the Racor set up? I assume both style set up would be way better than the stock set up?

Yes, it is mounted on the driver's side inside frame rail in between the torsion bar Xmember and the carrier bearing xmember. ( I have a CCLB).

As far as the cheapest....this is the cheapest way I found to do what I wanted

Although I didn't price it, I would assume if you just ran rubber/viton fuel hose and used barb fittings it would be cheaper, or went with a factory replacement line it would be cheaper, but this is what I wanted. From my first post, you can see I had some big ticket items that may or may not be on someone else's list for this, but I wanted them on my truck. (metrum rod, FP gauge, etc)

You can mount the walbro anywhere you like inline, although it is a good idea to have some sort of filter before, even if it is the tank sock. I know someone else did something similar to this setup, but put his new primary filter before the LP, then the LP fed directly into the IP. To each his own.

The Walbro has a pretty fine screen in the bottom bowl to stop anything from getting in the pump itself

very cool project!

If you don't mind me asking where did you get the Wix filters and bases? I would like to do something similar.

Those items came from amazon, I did quite a bit of shopping for them and they had the best price at the time.

When I get home I'll post the part numbers for the bases.

Some part numbers I used

OK, here are some of the part numbers I used. I have to give credit to acesneights for leading me to some of these.

(1) Russell 640830 - M16 x 1.5 to -6 Flare - To adapt tank fitting to -6an

(3) 1/2"NPT to -6an adaptors - To go into the filter bases (in x2, out x1)

(1) Russell 670060 - 3/8"NPT x -6an w/ 1/8"npt female - for FP sender

(2) 1/4"NPt to -6an adaptors - To go into the Walbro FRB-5

(1) Russell 661580 1/2"npt x 3/8"npt reducer bushing - so I could use Russell pn 670060

(1) Walking J Designs FTB IP fitting - not sure what the size is that threads into the IP, but it adapts to -6an and is drilled for max flow

(1) Modified IP fitting with enlarged holes, custom made by me

(1) Wix 24770 filter base for the pre-LP filter

(1) Wix 33239 filter for the pre LP filter

(1) Wix 24309 filter base for the primary filter

(1) Wix 33418 filter for the primary filter. Edit: I have since changed this to Wix 33123 because it is ~2 inches shorter and won't hang down below my frame

(1) Walbro FRB-5

(~15 ft) PTFE Braided stainless steel line, -6an

(7) Stainless Steel line straight adaptors (hose ends)

(1) 135* stainless steel adaptor (hose end at IP) Edit: If I was to do this again I would use a 150* as it would be easier to route the line under the intake at this location.

(1) 16 gauge mild steel plate, cut and painted by me

I think that is all I used. All of these parts are readily available online or you can probably get them at your local parker store, if you have one near. I used multiple vendors, but Summit has the quickest shipping and, so i've heard, the best customer service. I haven't had to use it yet.

I'm the kind of person that likes to go somewhere to get my stuff when I can, you mentioned some of this at a parker store, which I do have nearby, would they have wix filter bases there or would they be racor?

Thanks for the numbers!!

I actually didn't get any of my parts at a parker store, but they have or can get pretty much any fitting and hose you may need. Not sure about wix stuff, you can probably check their web site to see what they carry.
