Attn Stage 6 Fuel Hat Owners!!!

It seems we've had a few failures pop up in the last week or two. Some hoses on the feed side have cracked and a few feed lines have popped off causing the trucks to shut down and lose fuel pressure. If it happened to you, please post up what happened. Also let us know if your fuel lines have swelled at all.

We have written a letter today to Gates explaining about their fuel lines cracking. They're the only ones we know of that make submersible fuel lines. We are exploring other options and we will be beefing up my fuel system this weekend and will see how mine is holding up since I have about 30K on my setup.

One or two here and there is no biggie but now a few more have popped up and we ain't diggin' that. We've always stood behind out products and will continue to do so. Most have been reattaching the fuel lines and have been good since, but it still shouldn't have happened. We thank you guys for your support and we'd appreciate any and all feedback you guys can give us. Thanks.....

Harrison

does deadmanhose make something? I recall this problem popping up with earlier different source fuel hats, including one I had, because of the type and size clamps being used. If you're using normal worm clamps, that could be the issue. If using "fuel line" clamps (which have a similar but "different" method of compressing the fuel line against the nipple, with rounded edges and no sharp edge contact, then maybe just a bad run of gates hoses? good luck with fix and a big hats off (pun intended) to this vendor for not burying the cat turd. Good show.

Thanks for the headsup Harrison. Just another reason to have a fuel pressure gauge. I'll let you know if I see a fuel pressure issue. But so far its been fine and I know if I do have the issue you will take care of me.

Mine was the common hose that split coming out of the "T"connector. It was about two inches long and the reinforcing mesh was separated as well. The other hoses and the clamps which were the non- worm type were fine. The day I did the r&r I was rushing bc of having to wrestle with a full gas tank and had to buy new hose while the Jeep was on the rack. I had to hurry bc another job was coming into the shop and I didn't want to hold it up. So I didn't even get pictures. I thought about it the next day, but when I stopped by the owner said he already threw everything away. Wish I had saved the hose bc it was a pretty big split. BTW FWIW I think following up on this issue is a great thing and shows real concern for you customers. Technically it's a hose problem and a lot of vendors wouldn't care and would just point fingers or try to sweep the problem under the rug. Thanks again for the follow up and thanks for all the help with the initial install Harry. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
