Please start by selecting your Vehicle above. If you know our part number click here.
The Driven Diesel Fuel Tank / Pre-Pump Kit (commonly referred to as the "Hutch Mod") is the first step in the fuel system upgrade process. This kit includes all of the parts necessary to eliminate "air leaks" in the fuel circuit before the electric fuel pump (suction side) and add additional fuel filtration. Air in diesel fuel causes noisy operation and can damage the fuel injectors. This kit fits both the Super Duty Trucks and Excursions.

This kit includes:
• Extended Fuel Tank Pickup Tube *
• Extended Fuel Tank Return Tube *
• 15' New Gates 3/8" Fuel Line From Tank to Pump
• Optional 25' of Hose Total (see note below)
• High Quality Spin-On Filter Head
• Baldwin Fuel Filter / Water Separator **
• Driven Diesel Heavy Duty S.S. Custom Filter Mount **
• Complete Hardware Package including All Fittings, Nuts, Bolts and Washers
• Installation Instructions

NOTE: Some CAB AND CHASSIS trucks may require more than our standard 15' of hose. If you are using this kit on a C&C truck with a "behind the axle" fuel tank, please take a measurement from the fuel tank to the fuel pump (along the frame, the way the hose would route) and confirm whether the standard 15' hose length will work for you, or if you need the longer 25' length.

This kit is only rated for B20 Bio-Diesel. This is primarily due to the B20 rating Baldwin places on their filters and not the hose we've chosen to use. We are not aware of any appropriate pre-pump style filters that will work with higher concentrations of Bio-Diesel. If you are running Bio-Diesel, please be mindful of your filter service intervals and periodically check your hoses for signs of damage from the fuel.

NOTE: We DO NOT OFFER this kit without the filter due to lack of interest from customers and the high importance of a quality pre-pump filter.

This kit is NOT required with installations utilizing an AirDog or FASS.

This kit does NOT fit the E-Series Van due to the different configuration of the fuel tank. Please do NOT attempt to order this kit for use in an E-Series Van. We do NOT make a kit for the E-Series Vans.

Check out the cool ball valves in the "Related Products" section below, they make servicing the filters a much cleaner experience! We recommend TWO of these valves (inlet and outlet) with the Pre-Pump kit.

Did alot of research before buying. This kit is priced right. Give yourself a couple hours to do this. I did cut the stock return line. Fitted it with a worm clamp so I won't have to use fuel line removal tools in the future. After I installed everything followed the directions and no leaks! This kit has lowered the trucks noise alot, made the truck run smoother, and getting on the freeway is no problem. Fuel flow feels great, no restriction. A little bit about the truck: 6637 intake, ebpv delete, RR billet wheel, FRx, HPx, strictly pre filter, 233,000 original injectors no tuning. All in all this kit is a no brainer. Better filtration can only help you in the long run. Now you can dump your baldwin fuel filter into a clear container to check out if you are getting any water in your diesel. Thank You Strictly

Just installed it on my 1999 7.3 CCSB. It was straight forward putting this in, but I do recommend getting the fuel line tools prior to the installation. On the CCSB, it was easier to drop the tank. Do ALL of the fuel tank connections prior to remounting the tank.

Could have done a bit cheaper if I had gathered all the parts on my own but my time is worth money too. Everything is in the kit and installation is easy. One thing not in the kit is a fuel tank O-Ring, no big deal since I had several laying around. I highly recommend this kit for any 7.3 PSD.

this kit is put together very well. and i had great customer supt. when placing my order. there could be more detail when talking about removing the stock pump suction line. something better than... remove. :-/ it would also be a bonus to include an attention getter for the stock fuel tank vent lines. they are always going to be old and the rear one is a pita to re-connect due to it being so short. other than that, its an overall good kit. thanks S.D.

6. Paul on 11/18/2013, said:

I did not give this 5 stars because the website (and installation instructions) claim the filter head unit is "MADE IN USA!" and when I received the kit, the box with the filter head had "MADE IN CHINA" printed on the label. Also the thread sealant supplied was very runny and not enough to seal all 4 NPT ports on the filter head. Luckily I had thread sealant on hand. Other than those two issues the kit installed nicely.

No guessing required. No multiple trips to the store. The only thing I had to provide was Teflon tape. I will recommend this kit to anyone with fuel pickup issues or even anyone who wants to avoid them.

Great kit with easily read instructions that makes install a breeze. This is a must have for 7.3's to avoid all the issues with the factory mixing chamber. Thanks!

The kit was very well put together, and the instructions were great. My only comment would be if you are one of the few like me with a regular cab 4x4, there is not much space between the tank and transfer case to mount the filter. Mine ended up sitting at a slight angle because of the shape of the frame in that area. It is however very well protected here, and still accessible for service. Overall I am very happy with the kit and the fit and finish.

Nice kit, everything you need is there, and if you are decent mechanically the instructions are very thorough. For me the biggest gains were at the top end where you are really sucking down the fuel. After doing this and an Adrenaline HPOP it is like a whole new truck (had regulated return already, another "must have").
