cheapest place to buy fuel filter housing.

I found it once before, but I can't seem to locate the place that sells fuel filter housings, it was like $350 for a complete housing, does anyone know the website were this is???



Thanks, Cory

I'm not 100% sure, but I'm pretty confident that there's not any difference between the years (94-97) on the fuel canister.

I have a 95 & 97,.....and I've had the canisters off both of my trucks and from what I can remember they're identical.

I think your right, they look the same (from what I can tell in the pictures.)

I'm going to buy one, if I can't use it, I'll resell it.

Thanks for finding that! I search ebay every now and then for those, and all I ever find a 99+ ones.

whats the point of getting a new one other than leaks/damage? are they hard to clean or do they start to malfunction?

They corrode from the inside due to the water that sits in the bottom. The switchs and stuff can also go bad, but probably not that common.

Unless it has a hole in the bottom or its cracked they are completely rebuildable. There are two different ones. Function is identical I believe. A few things in different places. That one on ebay is the older one as stated. The fuel heater is also upgradeable to the Superduty heater.

I got the housing today. The pressure sensor (I think the sensor that turns the change fuel filter light on) is in a different place, the AN fitting are ananged different, and it has an extra bowl/screen housing???

But anyways the harness plugs right in, and it works perfect, so it will work on 96/97. When I took my old one out, a bunch of aluminum shavings came out.... nasty!
