Cool Random Diesel Ramblings-Post Them Here!

Use this thread to post what you did to your diesel today, or just let us know about something you saw!

I transferred a couple posts from the "What did you do to your truck today?" thread to get us started. I did not want to occupy that thread with our conversations about fuel filters

I'm interested in this if you are...
Do any of these systems negate the factory fuel filter? That thing fucking sucks to change. I would love to install one of these and only have to change a spin on under the truck
FASS makes a factory filter delete:

I hadn't gotten far enough in planning to think about getting rid of it...I would assume once the lift pump filters are in place, the factory one would last quite a while between changes

That is fine, I just want to stop removing that fender insert. I didn't clean it up before removing it, and actually tore a piece of it. Hate that filter!

Never pulled the liner off... Neither had any of the people I've paid to do it, lol. Unless the new style is different.

Awesome. I think I will do it. Dennis makes a point, and if the Cat filter can be removed easily, that works too

It must be. The 15-16 vids I see, some of the guys are removing the wheel, too. You would have to remove to much at the top to get it up out of there.

You're "supposed to" remove the liner on mine, too... It's tight, but going from right underneath works... One guy changed it from up top... Just the air intake tube got removed... But he was sitting up there when he did it, lol

From under the engine? Maybe if it was on ramps, I will check that out.
