Thought I would share this tid bit of info to help save all of us some money...

Note: Alliant Power products are OEM quality and can be found at many Diesel Supply Stores. I purchased mine form Turbo & Diesel Injection in Indianapolis.

The filters that were removed from my F-350 were from Ford. The Alliant Power filters and the Ford filters are 100% identical.

Alliant Power Filter
P/N: PF F4604 (replaces OEM part number FD4604)
Construction: paper pleated material fins with spun fiberglass overlay
Cost: Around $40 for the pair (primary and secondary)


Napa Pro-Select (Napa Brands)
P/N: SFI23899 (Supposedly "OEM" quality)
Construction: Pleated paper fin
Cost: $53


Napa Gold Filer (WiX)
P/N: FIL3899
Construction: Pleated paper fin
Cost:$85.00 for the pair (primary and secondary)

from EVERYTHING that I have read related to fuel filter motorcraft is the one and only way to go.

I believe Alliant Power is the same quality as Motorcraft.

Hence, I give you the Motorcraft picture:

My last Motorcraft fuel filters were $39.99 with free USPS Priority mail. I bought 4 sets ;) but the guy I bought mine from still has 1 set left (the ebay ad) for the same price if anyone's interested :shrug: I just cannot justify buying more than 4, lol. I won't pay more than $40 for a set no matter what thanks to Ebay- you can buy anything on Ebay, lol!

First post so hey.

I just bought Napa filters and for whatever reason they look exactly like the alliant ones pictured. Maybe it's different here in Canada but they definitely don't look like the ones you have pictured from Napa.

See the membrane on the larger Alliant and Motorcraft filter? It is very important for filtering, and I would stay away from any filter that does not have it (i.e. Napa).

Yep, the one from Napa that I picked up looks EXACTLY like the one with the membrane.

Something to remember though, a Motorcraft filter is just a high priced Racor filter. The filters are identical and Racor is the maker of the Motorcraft filters and yet once that Racor filter goes into that red and black box it's worth so much more, lol :doh: the fuel filter also has the membrane since it's the same filter, lol.
Racor oil filter:

FYI the Racor filter most likely is the same as the Alliant power, as my Alliant power filters came in a white Racor box.

possibly- I don't know. I do know that powerstrokeshop was having a filter sale for "white box" filters that they used when doing changes :shrug: but fwiw I still use Motorccraft filters because autozone has their oil filters for around $18 and I buy their fuel filters on ebay. I'd just rather use Motorcraft filters since any amount saved isn't worth the warranty hassles. also not all white boxed filters are Racor. I've seen many on ebay that try to package their filters in boxes that will pass for racor or even the same color as a motorcraft box so that you'd think it was one if you weren't paying attention. this just isn't somewhere I'd want to go cheap- buy motorcraft so you know you're getting the good filters!
