Fin rot which is now leaking. I did not do my (as they say) due diligence when I bought this rig. Just went by what I knew from the forum. Had some surprises as a result. When I got it home I got in there and took...

Hadn't really thought about it, Bob. I was thinking about getting the CAC too ($1,352) but decided against it. From what I have read, they don't fail as a rule being aluminum with no rust issues. Anyhow, it does...

Are we normally adding fuel coolers now?

YES.  Particularly with the "insulated" location of the fuel tank, a fuel cooler if running in above 80 degree F conditions is a good idea.

Production started adding them sometime after ours.  99's?  M11's? 

I ate a m11 ECU on a hot high speed drive last  month in Utah after 3,000 hours

$6k later. 

I got a quote from the cooler people.  $300 range plus shipping.  Mounting kit from...

Make sure the CAC mounting tabs on the bottom are in good shape,had to have mine rewelded at Huffman Radiator in Sinton tx,would'nt hurt to price that radiator from them,may be a little cheaper.

So since I have a 1996 mechanical Bosch fuel pump, I don't need a fuel cooler?

I removed this assembly from mine when I put in a new Mishimoto fuel cooler, full time HD FASS UP95 lift pump, and re-plumbed the fuel cooler loop. I took it apart and the only component that isn't a fitting is a check valve of sorts. The rube...

It will be interesting to see if they used this assy. for the 99' ISM equipped coaches. I bet the ISM's don't have a lift pump that only runs to prime the injection pump and then becomes a passive pass through manifold along for the ride...
