- select any tank as the "current" fuel source
- transfer fuel from any one tank to another
- polish fuel between tanks as well as within one tank
- easy to understand and operate
- selectable backup filter
- easy access for filter changes and system bleeding
These are compact machined anodized aluminum manifolds (the black boxes in the picture). They feature a number of 3/8" NPT ports and holes for bulkhead mounting. Just thread in your valves and fittings, block any unused ports with a plug, and you have saved yourself having to deal with numerous elbow and tee fittings. Also, the reduction in the number of pipe joints means less chance of fuel leakage. So, with these devices in mind, the design of the layout on the bulkhead can be done.
Red are supply hoses, Blue are return hoses
The trick here is to layout things neatly and logically, eliminating fuel line crossings as much as possible. This drawing is somewhat to scale. The manifolds and valves are scaled to real relative sizes. The drawing looks sort of complicated, but operation of the system will be pretty easy. Simply select your source and destination tanks via the valves on the manifolds, and the FilterBOSS will do the rest!
This is still in-work and, of course, subject to change till everything is installed.
