drain, clean out, reinstall, close up, cycle key 2 or 3 times looking for leaks each time to refill ..fire her up..if you dont have RR it may take a few mile ride before she will start smoothing out..

Dieselfiltersonline.com If you still have the original fuel lid look at the Racor brand. Racor supplies the Motorcraft line and is alot cheaper. I have been using them for 9 years now. Buy several if you can.

Some of our sponsors carry the Racor. Diesel Innovations has it on the site.
DieselORing.com is another.

I change mine every 10K. And why in the world would you not spend the extra $5-20 for a good one when injectors cost so damn much?????? Fuel filters are so damn important for our motors injectors health.

Well define "best"?

Baldwin, Fleetguard and MC/Racor are all floating around 10 microns absolute (98.6% efficient) with 93-96% efficient water strippers (doesn't break down free vs. emulsified) I run the donaldson that syn posted the link too. Like 17 bucks per plus shipping, they are 5 microns at 95% and like 6-7 microns absolute with about the same water stripping as the others mentioned. So I guess they are a little "better" but you can't go wrong with any of the big industrial brands IMHO.

For the of comparison the NAPA/Wix fuel filter is 14 microns nominal (50%) with unknown water stripping capabilities.

Wix 33818 & Napa 3818 Fuel Filter: FleetFilter Secure Online Store
