Was it hard to take apart the unit with the one wire? Mine is leaking also.
Will an o-ring fit from a standard o-ring kit or will I need a special one.
After you remove the filter how do you take apart the part with the wire?

My truck 90 F350 7.3 auto I bought new. I Still drive everyday.

Thanks. loadmaster3
