I thought we're talking about Dalby Moto in Australia.

Awesome!
Can you post pics of filters used for 10k miles or more with the purge unit?
How often do you flush out the tanks from dirt?
What mileage have you done with the purge unit installed?

I can't find the pix of the filters.... I'll have to take pix again next time I pull the pump out.

There is one more picture that I am trying to hunt down to post here. It is the picture of the removal of the built in valve that needs to be removed out of the fuel pump.

I don't flush the tanks. There is no visible dirt. Of course it's there in the fuel but the point of the purge unit it to blow it back in the fuel so that it is not accumulate onto the filter's surface. A little "dirt" on a filter doesn't hurt. It's the accumulation of it that does and cripples the flow. Over time, it will surely show in the tank and I will flush them like I did when my fuel filters got clogged before I had the purge unit.

I have over 15,000 miles with the purge unit. I pulled the fuel pump 5k miles ago (again) and they looks like they were when I installed them (other than the slight fuel tint that they got)

hope that helps

It fell apart when I removed it, with little disentigrated pieces of plastic all over



Yes, it still ran when I parked it

Mine looked like that at 12k mikes! I'd say you did well in getting that kind of easy miles out them

Hey Apple Jam,
That filter looks like it was cooked rather than just being dirty. Have you added a fuel injector cleaner to your fuel since you had that filter in? If you have then that is good information to know. I'm always pretty leery about those injector cleaning products.
Thanks KJ

No, no additives. Just too much time. I agree, it does look and feel "cooked".
The plastic under the metal caps that fell right off is all brittle and falls apart easily.

I've got the pump back on the Safari Tank, will burp coolant and then.....
...Keep your fingers crossed that Punkin starts up nice.
I did so much at once, that I'm kind skeered

Mine looked like that at 4000. I was shocked.

Yeah, all those miles were easy miles, yeah



So, when I go to start this up, with no fuel primed in the pump, how long does it normally take to start?
Not there yet, just eating lunch and wondering.....
