I'm big on doing my own thing. I made my kit. Filter, head, and hose can be purchased (ordered) from Orileys, I'm sure there other places. Lowes for my fittings.
IIRC dieselsite.com had a nice kit.

any kind of elc coolant..i have caterpillar elc..fleetrite or rotella, etc works too. I got mine from a local dealer who mainly services diesels. If you go on dfuser.com and click on their coolant filter kit, they have a list of all the brands and part numbers to the proper filter that you need. They are all the same, just diff brands. I think dfuser and dieselsite make the best coolant filter. I have the dfuser one, I like it cause it came with 3 filters, but the bracket that holds the unit seems a little flemsy to me. FCDP also makes a nice kit.
