Re: Project Shamu Build

No coolant filter. But I do want one.

You thinking it has some clogged up passageways and a coolant filter will fix this high heat problem? Or that a filter could cause problems in some way?

Re: Project Shamu Build

It’s a 7.3... doesn’t need one. 6.0 yes I recommend it (I do have one on the 6.0).

I have one for the 7.3 sitting some where. If you need it you can have it - just text me lol.

Re: Project Shamu Build

Eh, I don't think its a bad idea to put one on, so long as its a bypass filter. Maybe I'll hit you up. Thanks bud.

Re: Project Shamu Build

Side note... Pitman Arm, rev 2. I went down to 3/16" mild steel, so I can tig weld it without there being a massive gap to fill, I added a center rib that you can't see in the shot, and also added a jog in the center to add for clearance of the drag link when turning (mine barely touches at full lock). Its also a little longer than my old one, and much longer than the stock one. I should be able to get over 43* of steering, one way, with this pitman arm. Even though the stock axle shafts are only good to about 33-35*, with some minor trimming I can get 38* and be steering wayyy better than the 30* or less than I have now.

Now I just need to find the time. Can't wait.

All Diesel engines should have a coolant filter . Wether or not they “need one” is opinion . A filter system is a perfect way to add SCA into the system . My thought was if there was indeed trash in the system the filter will certainly let you know .
You can install the filter in a bypass way by teeing into the heater hoses , that way if the filter should plug up there is still coolant flow .
I had a truck that plugged two filters in a short amount of time with trash . We flushed the system before we installed the filter . Surprising what is in these engines .

Re: Project Shamu Build

Agree with @longjonsilver


Mine was a Christmas gift but have been pleased.

It comes with a Baldwin 5134 filter but I use a Napa 4070.

Agreed with you three. That's a mighty clean looking under hood there buddy, props to you. Have you had any trouble with that short hose between the filter/ radiator? From the picture that looks like a good place for it to pull off during a frame twister type situation, but it's a picture, so can't tell.

I don't dog the Blue Bomber much, so frame twisting is rare. But I have not had one issue with the set up. I also check all my hoses and connections religiously. I try to keep engine as clean as possible so no leaks do sneak up on me.

I am getting ready to change my water pump, coolant and the filter so will try to remember to take some pictures of filter and may try to cut it open for us to see.

I bounced around doing my own set up as @masakimm did, but a gift is a gift. I mentioned one time I would like to have one as they are clean looking and functional, it was my only gift that Christmas from my family.
