I’m performing a 6BT 12v swap on a 98 Chevy K2500 currently running a 5.7 vortec engine and have a few questions about converting the fuel system.
- The in-line gas fuel filter. Remove it and replace it with a short length of hose or line?
- Both the current, gas, in-tank pump and the Cummins lift pump on the 6BT are brand new. Are both viable options for supplying fuel to the 6BT? Should I pick one over the other? Could I simply run both and have the electric pump feed the mechanical, Cummins pump?
- Regardless of which pump(s) is used, I’ve read that the pickup line, filter sock, etc. inside the tank need to be modified for diesel usage. Can someone please provide details on how?
