  • Donaldson 3 micron filter 99% efficiency filter

    After researching micron efficiency of NT Pajero diesel filter efficency and introducing the P903316 kit to this site I finally got around to fitting a P903316 filter kit on the weekend. Life has been busy.

    For more information : http://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum/...ad.php?t=34944

    This kit has a nominal efficiency of 3 microns at 99%efficiency, flow rate of 114LPH. Donaldson recommend fitting before factory original and to change every 12 months. See above thread for additional information.

    I've noticed a few references to 12mm barbs being required to fit this kit and wish to clarify that the 10 mm barbs supplied with the kit are suitable for NT pajero (with 10mm Fuel lines).

    Again I'll state that I have no connection with Donaldson and that there are other filter kits available.

    The Donaldson kit is a beauty and includes filter head, 2 filters, 2x10mm straight barbs, 1x right angle barb and drain bowl.

    see http://donaldsontoolbox.com.au/files...l_Fuel_Kit.pdf for additional information

    Additional components required include 500mm or so of 9.5mm fuel hose, home made bracket and a couple of hose clamps. The original inlet fuel hose is reused.

    I fitted this kit a few weeks ago and just drilled a new hole in the mounting bracket that came with it, this was so I could use the existing threaded holes in the NW Firewall next to the original air filter.
    My dual battery is mounted in the back, so I don't need to worry too much about space under the bonnet.

      HI

      Great to see the NW also has 10mm fuel lines!!!!

      I will also be fitting a second battery in the cargo area.

        Hi I'm chasing some advice on these filters? There's a new model the hi efficiency fuel filter which I think had a 3 micron filter is there anything else I need to understand before fitting one what about the fuel flow/hr
        And is there a difference between these and fuel manager branded filters? Thanks for any advice

          Strange you say the 10mm barbs will do on the NT.
          On my NT the metal line from the tank is definately bigger than that. I had some 10mm hose & it came nowhere near to fitting this pipe.
          I had to use 12mm this also meant changing at least the inlet barb on the Donaldson to 12mm
          Just wondering if Mitsubishi changed the pipe size mid NT series?
          Mine is a May 2010
          May be worth confirming the size before you start the job
          Cheers. Paul

            HI Paul,

            Interesting that fuel line size appears to change. Goodsy let me know that when he installed his kit he used 10 mm barbs on his NS.

            I've seen a few other references on this site that lines are 10mm for NT and NW.

            I take you point in checking fuel lines size before starting.

            Lets see what others say.

              HI Watto,

              I like the Donaldson kit as it is a little over $100 and includes2 filters. Racor have set the standard for CRD filtration in my opinion when they recommend 3 micron at 95%efficiency.

              The Donaldson P903316 kit exceeds this at 3 microns and 99% efficiency. The filtration material is also good at removing water from the fuel.

              Dirt and water are the killers of CRD.

              Being an economic rationalist I'd go for the Donaldson kit every time!!!

              Hill

              PS See Pauls comments above ie check barb size before ordering. 12mm barbs are available from Repco if your filter supplier is unable to supply.

                HI Watto

                The 114LPH filter kit will be fine for the PAJ.

                THere is also a 374LPH kit with the same filter material available that has been fitted by a member on this site. This filter is mounted from the top of the filter head.

                  I fitted a Donaldson P903074, cost was $113 +gst and $12 postage from filter discounters (great to deal with) + about $40 in fittings and some 1/2 fuel hose. So all up <$200 and that includes a spare filter in the kit too.

                  I went this way due to the 3 micron rating and large capacity = more crud holding and better flow @379 lt/hr

                  Will post some pics when I get a chance

                        donaldson 3 micron filter 99% efficiency filter

                        Hi, have fitted the Donaldson P551516 fuel filter to my NT diesel [had to get 12mm fittings. Filled the filter before screwing on--- a few pumps and all good. Seemed ok for first couple of runs, but now when starting cold have to crank for a couple of seconds and after a short run [ still cold] still wont start immediately. Have felt for diesel at all connections but all dry. Battery good and spins engine fast. No other work done on motor apart from the SPV-EGR mod done 1000km prior with no issues. Could it be sucking some air even tho there;s no fuel leak? Appreciate any suggestions. thanks, john

                          Hi John

                          Could be you have some air in there still. I'll be putting one of these filters in shortly and as well as filling the filter before installing it, I'll be pumping diesel through the fuel lines before connecting them - that way I hope to minimise the likelihood of leaving air in the system.

                          Cheers

                            Agree with above to check for an air leak. Also check bleed screw and filter gasket.

                            How you installed yours as primary or secondary filter (after original)?

                              I Installed my P903074 as a pre filter prior to the original due to the new filter having a much high flow rate of 379lt/hr and expected bigger contaminate holding capacity being about twice the length of the original MM filter.

                              Clean fuel and not getting stuck was my primary concern. If it was after the factory filter I expect that would clog much sooner being a much smaller size.

                              Happy to hear from other points of view on the pre vs post fitment though

                              cheers Mark
