very cool engines! where did you make these?Got new rad mounted along with intercooler. Upper and lower are still not ideal, couldn’t find right bends and sizes. Ended up with a 90deg elbow on lower and just a coupler and reducer on the upper. The non removable sections were done with gates power grip clamps.

Never fuel up at a station that is getting a fuel delivery when you pull in... the tanks on those trucks are used for a lot of different things and they flush them with water... no kidding.. and when they dump they rile up all the sediment at the station tank too boot...Yeah, kind of hard for a plastic tank to rust. LOL. Sure sounds like you got contaminated fuel. Believe I'd send that station a bill. Years ago a friend and I were traveling west on vacation. I was driving my Ford diesel and he a Chevy gas. We both fueled up at the same time but at two different stations. I went to the truck stop and he to the cheaper gas station across the street. About a mile or so down the road his shut down in the middle of the interstate. I took him to a place to get it towed and they found he had gotten about a half a tank of muddy water. Delayed us about 2 hours getting him towed and the mess cleaned out of his tank and a new fuel filter. I always learned on diesel to buy where the pump a lot of it.
I do NOT use this type of glass filter any more - Had one crack from cap to cap. Maybe try a semi-transparent plastic filter - It should darken as it begins to fill up with trash?
