Installation Procedure


NOTICE

Do not allow dirt to enter the fuel system. Thoroughly clean the area around a fuel system component that will be disconnected. Fit a suitable cover over disconnected fuel system component.



NOTICE

Keep all parts clean from contaminants.

Contaminants may cause rapid wear and shortened component life.



NOTICE

Care must be taken to ensure that fluids are contained during performance of inspection, maintenance, testing, adjusting, and repair of the product. Be prepared to collect the fluid with suitable containers before opening any compartment or disassembling any component containing fluids.

Refer to Special Publication, NENG2500, "Dealer Service Tool Catalog" for tools and supplies suitable to collect and contain fluids on Cat products.

Dispose of all fluids according to local regulations and mandates.

    Typical example

  1. Align the fuel filter base (3) with the mounting bracket. Install the bolts (8) and nuts (not shown). Tighten the nuts to a torque of 22 N·m (16.2 lb ft).

    Note: Some fuel filters are installed by the OEM and torques for the mounting fasteners may vary. Check with the OEM Installation Manual for the correct torque setting.

  2. If necessary, install the fuel filter element (4) to the fuel filter base (3). Refer to Operations and Maintenance Manual, "Fuel System Secondary Filter - Replace".

  3. If necessary, install new olives onto the fuel lines. Connect the fuel lines (1) and (2) to the fuel filter base (3). Tighten the nuts on the fuel lines (1) and (2) to a torque of 9 N·m (6.6 lb ft).

  4. If necessary, install new inner seals (7) to the fuel filter base (3).

    Install new washers (6) onto the plugs (5) and install the plugs (5) to the fuel filter base (3). Tighten the plugs (5) to a torque of 22.5 N·m (16.6 lb ft).

Note: Some engines may have a hand priming pump on the fuel filter base. Refer to the Disassembly and Assembly Module, "Fuel Filter Base - Assemble" topic for information on installing the hand priming pump.
