Sorry to bring up an old thread.....I just did this modification to truck yesterday. Though I would start here with question......Can you help with detail on which electrical lines you hooked up for heater and water indicator? Thanks in advance.Duramax Fuel Filter installed and up running. Line size @ filter is closer to 1/2 inch but fresh 3/8" line will stretch into place over the Duramax inlet & outlet. I do have the fuel heater wired up using new DIY weather pack connectors. I have not wired up the water separator yet as I wish to modify the Duramax design to retain the CUCV 3rd wire / bulb check function.
How’s this setup holding up for you? I think I like this one best.Duramax Fuel Filter installed and up running. Line size @ filter is closer to 1/2 inch but fresh 3/8" line will stretch into place over the Duramax inlet & outlet. I do have the fuel heater wired up using new DIY weather pack connectors.

I was able to get to mine with a long screwdriver from between two of the intake runners on the side. Bring a flashlight!When I connected to the stock 1/4" fuel line running from the filter to the injection pump, that fuel line was extremely hard to cut......hard as a rock.....is it possible to replace that 1/4" line from filter to injection pump without removing the intake manifold?
Gimpyrobb had like 40 billion 3546 filters for the FM100 bases. I have a dozen or so and nothing to put them on. I had the FM100 base in my ambulance but sold it. I have extra bases but I can't find them, Still need to do the base swap in my SECM.I went with the FM100 NAPA 4913 kit. Because I like to be prepared I thought I'd pick up a filter to put on the shelf. While looking up the replacement I found out that the 533913 that came in the NAPA 4913 kit is a 150 micron filter.
I did find that the correct number should be a NAPA 3546 or STANADYNE 31873 = NAPA 600086. Just thought I'd put this out there. If you did the FM100 you might want to double check your filter. Thanks to m1010plowboy and Mainsail, they have the correct 5micron filter I was able to get the numbers off their pictures.
Luckily I haven't put too many miles on my truck, but injectors and pump might be in my future.
