Oil Filter Size

Hi,

Finally decided to put a bypass style oil filtration on my PS. Looking through the options the way I am going is Cummins Filtration (FleetGuard) Venturi spin on filter. They have the bypass and full flow elements in one. Oil filtration system that doesn't need external lines or additional filter mounting. The one for the 7.3 is LF9027. Now there is another p/n for a CAT application that fits but is 3 inches longer than a stock filter. Does anyone think this would hang down too far on a 2WD F350? I would prefer to run the larger filter. It is p/n LF9691. Any thoughts on the clearance issue? Any one have pics of the oil filter location under their truck? Mine is 90 miles away in storage for the winter...

Re: Oil Filter Size

LF9027 is the FleetGuard part number for the 7.3 filter. LF9691 is the number for the longer CAT.

Re: Oil Filter Size

Hey Cory,
I am running the Cat version LF9691 and shouldn't be a concern for you. Have not done any oil analysis but sotp it runs smoother at and beyond interval change compared to the stock fleetgard.

Re: Oil Filter Size

JCart,

Thanks much for the reply. I figured since all my air and fuel filtration is upto spec I should see what I can do for my oil system and this seemed like a no brainer but the extra length concerned me from a ground clearance perspectivem. Beside just found out today I can't get my hands on the 9027 for a while...

Re: Oil Filter Size



I had to order a case of 6 from IH and it took 6 months to get them not sure why they are running a short supply perhaps tight inventories because of global down turn? iirc the filter FL9691 is 1/2" wider then stocker and fits even or slightly below the oil pan on my sig truck. Can take a pix if you want just give a shout.

Re: Oil Filter Size

JCart,

You can get them through Cummins distributor or dealer a piece at a time. With my employee discount through Cummins I can get them but I still don't want to pay for case! Lol. Are you running an extended drain interval? I always change around 3000 to 4000 miles. It will make the changes more expensive but I feel it will be worth it.

Re: Oil Filter Size

has anyone tried the napa/wix version of these filters? there is a 1792XE and 1792XD. the XD is the equivalent of the LF9691 with a built in by pass filter. the XE is a full flow filter but with a 5 micron rating.
