I just received my new purge valve assembly today. I'll hack apart the old one for the next time this needs to be replaced
This is exactly what I am doing! My new one should be here tomorrow and the old one will get the @SSgtjrobertson treatment for the next time...and so on...I just received my new purge valve assembly today. I'll hack apart the old one for the next time this needs to be replaced
If you insert an @ in front of the user name it will "tag" him and he will get an alert. May not get his attention otherwise.Hiya SSgtjrobertson. I noticed that every site if find that sells the same model fuel filter you have (the Earl's #731155) does not show the 10 microns printed between the IN & OUT port identifiers... Made me a bit wary of the China knock-offs, even though the product is made in China anyways 🏌️♂️
Anyways, what I was hoping to find out is what the nominal flow-rate is for that valve in our cars. That particular filter shows: * Filter flows 125 gph at 4.1 psi (free flow) and 88 gph at 61.4 psi * Since you bought that one, I'm sure it's fine. I'm just curious to a fault sometimes 🤦♂️
They also have 100 micron filtering available for the same price and a similar flow rate... Any reason why I would pick one over the other? If not I can head over to Summit Racing and get one tomorrow, since I'm just getting this assembly/project parted together to do it soon.
BTW, thank you for all of this research, time, & effort you put in to helping us all out with this issue! Documenting everything with clear explanations all along the way like a boss! 🏆
The listed flow rates are for liquid fuel. The fuel vapors from the tank will not be effected in the same way. The reason I went with the Earl's filter over the factory filter was due to a few key points.Good call @ddfred . I'll edit the post It's nothing that needs rushing anyways. I know quite a few members here work ridiculous hours (I'm one of them, haha). Not expecting immediate replies, but just one of those questions I can't answer without all the tech documents (which either I can't access or just won't pay $150 for, ).
