Not that it is very difficult to install in any way but I thought that I would do a quick write up anyway so here we go.
One Sinister or Dieselsite 6.4 Coolant Filter kit.
A drill and a set of drill bits
A 1 1/2" hole bit
A box cutter
A couple of vice grips
A 9/16th wrench
A 8mm socket and 1/4" ratchet
A tap set
Some extra coolant
Step one: Remove air filter intake wires.
Step two: Remove filter cover.
Step three: Remove filter box. After you undo the clamp it will pop right out.
I cheated here. I clamped off the lines instead of draining coolant.
Install the large "T" in the lower heater hose and tighten.
Next do the same with hose on top of the radiator.
Use the remaining "T" at this location.
Now here I deviated away from the instructions again. The instructions call for the bracket to be mounted on the frame rail at the transmission cross-member.
I decided to mount the filter base in the front wheel well. I did this by drilling and tapping the frame in front of the coil spring hoop.
This is what I came up with.
If anyone is worried about the front tire hitting anything, dont worry at full lock the tire is a solid 5 inches away from the filter. I have no clue if this would remain true for F-350 dually's or non dually trucks.
