Small inline fuel filter

Just added a Raptor 150 lift pump to the truck and need to know what type of small inline fuel filter I can use between the tank and the Raptor. I have a Baldwin screw on filter in between the Raptor and hp fuel pump. Just wanted to give the Raptor a little bit of protection. Any suggestions?

I have a Wix 33033 inline filter here at the house, but didn't know if that was gonna be the correct route to take.

That isn't a filter I would use. I would use a wire mesh filter for that application. Wix has them too.

I got mine at napa, it is bk7309562. 3/8 inch see through with a replaceable mesh screen. It's nice to be able to see the screen for replacement purposes. Around 14 dollars.

Here is a pic of it installed: http://s481.photobucket.com/albums/r...t=IM004929.jpg

Thanks for the info. Got one ordered from Napa. The guy at the Napa store said they used to stock them, but he said that no one has bought any in about 3 years or so.

That looks like a decent filter for lawnmower.

Something similar to this is what I would use.

Part Detail

Your lawn mower analogy is kind of weird. Obviously this is not the primary filter. Do you think that filter is going to reduce the life of the pump?

What I think is, that filter is a POS for any application except perhaps a lawn mower. Those things once littered the counter and end caps in every auto parts store on the planet.

Have you done the in tank mods, or does the raptor pump go inside the tank? What made you decide on using the Raptor pump? What kind of PSI and GPM is it rated at? Diesel rated? How does it compare cost wise with the more popular options?

If you have not done the in tank mods, then you've already got 2 cylinder shaped screens in the mixing chamber that will protect your new pump (unless the pump is going in the tank.) I use a filter from Baldwin that looks like a cross of the 2 pictured above. It's clear plastic with a visible screen on the inside. I spent a good deal of time on the phone talking to one of the engineers at Baldwin when I settled on that filter. Mine is rated at 100 micron, which is what Baldwin recommended for a pre-pump application. They had other 100 micron filters, but I liked the clear outer shell so I could see what kind of shape it's in.

I see that 444-4d is using a 120 micron filter, which oddly enough looks just like the one on my riding lawnmower I don't know the micron rating for the one tbpower is using. Just make sure your filter is diesel rated and not made of galvanized steel.

I'm not using that filter or any other inline filter. That was the first picture I found to depict a wire mesh inline filter. There are many choices.

Yes, I did the intank mods this past weekend. I got the kit from ITP. The only reason I went for the Raptor pump is because a friend of mine had it on his truck for a couple of weeks and gave me a smokin good deal on it. Otherwise, I would have went with a Carter lift pump. The Raptor new is around $ 400.00 and I just couldn't swing that on this go round. I know that it puts out 150 GPH, but don't know what the PSI is set at right now, but it is adjustable. Since doing the tank mod it has made the engine quieter and I love how the tank fills up.

Fixing to go outside and throw on the Napa bk7309562 in line filter and I should be in business.

Do you have that Baldwin # by chance?

This is the one Chris was talking about: Baldwin # BF7725 Primary Fuel Filter | Specialty metric screws for your motorcycle as well as Fuel, Lube, and Air filters for your car or truck.

He said it is a little smaller than 3/8 inch but did not have a problem with it leaking. He also gave me this link: Worldwide Retail Locator
