I want to install a coolant filter after seeing all of the junk that was caught on my Dad's 02 PSD. However, I am not sure about the plumbing. It needs to be setup as a bypass system. I am thinking about tapping into the heater hoses with tees for supply and return. The PSD kit gets coolant from a port in the water pump, and returns it to the coolant overflow bottle. Theirs is a little different that ours, in that there is coolant flow through the overflow at all times. Does anyone have any ideas? Some of the B Series engines used for industrial purposes have coolant filters, correct? Maybe there is already a factory kit out there.
coolant will most likely follow the path of least resistance and plumbing it bypass from the heater core will most likely not net you much. I would venture to say it needs to be plumbed full flow from the heater core in order to get anything through it.
Ok, let's say I do plumb it as full flow. If the filter gets plugged and slows or stops flow through the heater core what would the side effects be? No heat? Overheated engine? Nothing? Mild inconvenience?
Probably worst symptom would be no heat in the cab. most likely will not overheat the engine. Put it in the return line from the heater core. While you are at it, plumb some valves into the heater core lines so you can shut it off and have colder AC in the summer. just make sure you bypass it so it will flow through your filter.
Can it be done with the head on? I think not. Full flow is not necessary, but I do not think there is a way to do a bypass. Most of the crud will get filtered out in short order, but the sand just under the surface of the iron, "burn-in", can leach out of the block throughout the life of the engine. Filtering this constant precipitate out of the coolant is the long term benefit of this filter.
