It oriented in such a way that it is the low point in the line, and there is a single low point in the entire thing?

That's the "not exactly" part...the coil is generally horizontal, but it is at the low point between the exhaust manifold and the gauge.

Try thinning it down to one loop, oriented vertically, and put an inch of water in the bottom.

Just out of curiosity in colder climates, such as Wisconsin or Minnesota, would that water freeze?
Could it do any damage to the tubing?
How long would it take to return to liquid once the cabin was warmed up?
Could you use something liquid other than water with a better freeze point?

Yes, it'll freeze.

It has not done any damage to the tubing I've used (vinyl, plastic, etc)

It takes ~15 minutes after you start getting heat depending on how cold it is

The water is from the exhaust gas - it's not put in there intentionally.

I tried to order some filters from BD today and they had to search for the part number as #135 did not come up.

The filter is referred to as a "scrubber" and the part number he came up with was 1200210.

Total cost was just over $15 for 2 filters plus shipping.

I also received my Hewitt gauge today and I did not get a invoice with a breakdown of prices but the total was $135 for the gauge, stainless EMP install kit, and shipping.

I will post pics this evening of the stainless EMP install kit.

The kit is not a solid stainless tube / pipe, but rather a 15" braided stainless hose with 1/4" npt threads on one end and swaglock fitting on the other end.

I knew I should have asked them myself.

Glad you got to the bottom of it I was wondering about that 3 digit part # as most BD part #'s were 7 digits.

I wouldn't be surprised if the one you receive is different than the one I have as mine was used in one of their kits from 10 years ago.

Let us know if its different.

Here are pictures of the braided stainless Exhaust pressure install kit:
The part number is 721-300-015. The tech support guy said they use these all the time to connect to exhaust manifolds on diesels.
The ends of the hose are AN fittings with adapters to 1/4" NPT and 1/8" push to connect or push in fitting.
If anyone knows the correct term for those push on fittings I would like to know.

Cool stuff - Thanks for posting the info on their exhaust connection, good to know.

While the Hewitt industries EMP install hose is a quality part, I don't recommend it for the TDI's (at least not for the ALH).

I tried to install it today and it is about 6 or 7 inches too long, and not long enough to make a loop back to the firewall. The hose is also very stiff and does not like to do any bending.

I tried to find 1/8" stainless steel tubing but could not find any local.

On my way home I had a bright idea so I stopped at an AutoZone and picked up a 3/16" inverted flare steel brake line and 2 fittings to adapt from the inverted flare fitting to 1/8" NPT thread.

All together the brake line and 2 fittings were less than $11, I also needed a 1/4" to 1/8" NPT bushing and a 90 degree 1/4" NPT street elbow.

Everything went together very easily and I used a rubber cushioned metal clamp to hold the line using the same bolt that holds down the turbo oil feed line to the exhaust manifold.

Here are some pics of the install:

I received a "snubber" from BD and it's a fitting used for dampening the exhaust pulses to the gauge.

The filter I was after has been obsolete for years now.They don't use a filter anymore.

The BD tech guy said people have made their own using 3/8" NPT fittings and a small tampon.I can't remember all the details but I think you'll get the idea.The benefit is that you can change the "element" once a year (for example) at a low cost.

If someone makes one please post a picture up here.
