Beans Diesel/Bean Machine has stepped up the tank sump another notch. Made
from 6061 Billet aluminum, this guy is built like a tank and is super simple
to install. Just like their original and revolutionary design, install is as
easy as it gets, requiring a single 3" hole and a single bolt. This means
super easy and quick install time as well as minimal places to develop a leak.
All of their tank sumps come with a 3" hole saw, (so no extra trips to
the hardware store), as well as all stainless or aluminum hardware. The single
O-ring design creates the perfect seal insuring you have zero leaks. They manufacture
the only tank sump on the market that uses Oring Boss style fittings instead
of a pipe thread style fitting. This means less possibility for leaks and a
perfect seal. The fittings can be used with a quick disconnect fitting (found
on many aftermarket fuel systems) or 1/2" push-lock style fuel hose. That
means it is going to be plug and play for the largest percentage of aftermarket
fuel systems out there! Beans even includes a plug if you only need a single
outlet style sump.
Beans Diesel are not the only sump manufacture on the market, but if you do
purchase a Beans sump, you will be purchasing a 100% USA manufactured product
from the company that invented the single hole design sump!
If you are looking to install a FASS fuel system,
Air Dog fuel pump, or any other aftermarket fuel
system, you will find through your research that many past and present customers
are complaining of noise and quarter tank issues.
Let's cover the quarter tank issue first. These quarter tank problems are caused
by the draw straw often supplied with these kits. A draw straw is a tube that
is fed through the top of the fuel tank that attaches to the suction line going
to your aftermarket fuel system. The draw straw is located wherever you drill
the hole, but the only available spots to drill into your factory diesel fuel
tank are flexible spots. So as you drive, the fuel tank is flexing. When you
go around a sharp corner with a quarter tank of fuel, the draw straw can swing
away from where gravity takes the fuel. This causes the fuel system to suck
in air and acts like your truck is running out of fuel. The truck will die,
but once you pull over and the fuel settles, the truck will start again. It's
not only annoying, but also dangerous because your power steering stops working
when the engine shuts down, brakes also become sketchy. Noise is another common
complaint associated with aftermarket fuel systems.
What causes the fuel pump to make so much noise? Strain, the harder the pump
has to work, the more noise it is going to make. When the fuel system is trying
to suck fuel vertically through a draw straw it's going to cause that fuel pump
to work harder. Therefore, more noise is going to be the result. Some of these
aftermarket diesel lift pumps utilize the factory draw straw which is very small
in diameter. If the fuel system you have purchased is running 1/2" or 5/8"
and the factory draw straw is only 5/16" then you have a massive restriction
in the fuel flow. This is always going to cause the fuel pump to run harder
The Beans Diesel Bean Machine Fuel Sump is designed to fix all of these issues.
By pulling fuel from the bottom of the tank rather than the top, you are taking
a lot of strain off the fuel pump, allowing it to operate much quieter and you
will never have to worry about quarter tank issues again! Another added bonus
to the Beans Diesel Bean Machine fuel sump, is the simple fact that you no longer
need to drop the fuel tank to install your aftermarket fuel system. You simply
drill a hole in the bottom of the tank, clean out any shavings and install the
sump. Minimal tools are required and it shaves about 3 hours off your install
If you have read on the forums that these sumps can get knocked off or pulled
from the tank, we assure you, no parts manufactured by Beans Diesel Bean Machine
are released without rigorous testing first. We sent a handful of these sumps
to customers all over the country in different climates to make sure our installation
was simple and to ensure our product can stand up to their rugged life styles.
If the hard working loggers in the Rocky Mountains of the Northwest can hammer
up and down gruesome dirt roads day in and day out with our sumps installed,
then we are pretty sure you aren't going to knock our sump off driving to and
from work each day. Desert racing you say, we've put our sumps through that
too. Imagine a 7,000 pound diesel truck sailing off the top of a sand dune and
crashing down in the rocks and sage brush cruising at a cool 90 miles per hour.
We have seen these fuel sumps so destroyed they are barely recognizable....
still no leaks. Don't be fooled by keyboard ninjas. We assure you our diesel
fuel sump is up to the task. Whatever you can throw at it, it will do the job
it was intended as long as you follow our step by step instructions and take
care when centering the hole in the preformed hub in the bottom of your tank.
These sumps were designed for plastic tanks.
