Cracked my fuel filter cap....

Well proof that "Tina" dont do nothin nice and easy, I cracked the fuel filter cap while performing the "blue spring upgrade". So looks like Im in the market now. So any suggestion? Diesel manors looks to be in the runnin so far-http://www.dieselmanor.com/dm_products/DM-BCF60PSD.asp

Would like to go with BPD but wow pricey. Thanks

Oriellys sells a stock replacement, and Vivian sells billet caps.

I called Orielly's they wanted $53 for a plastic cap...Looks like Diesel Manor is in the lead so far.
Now I gotta figure if Im gonna monitor pressure through the edge or a pillar mount. The money avalanche has begun...

also check your ford or international dealer. I was surprised when I bought a oil filter cap for mine from the dealership and it was only $20

You can get a new OEM one from Tousley Ford for $30

And if you use the correct socket the cap should not crack or get rounded.

The nut on my cap is rounded off so I'm going to have to break the cap to change the filter, mine should be here tomorrow...

Mine had the square drive, but the torque to break it loose cracked it. I found out when i fired her back up and she was drooling diesel outta the cracks..

Mine did the same thing when I stuck the 1/2" drive in it and turned. I now have the correct size socket and no more worries.
