Fuel Filter

The other day my fuel filter cap raise up on oneside of the fuel bowl with the rubber seal hanging out on one side.I dumped about 10 dollars of diesel on the ground. Well put another filter and cap on the truck. Boom did it again. I did have the Pressure raised up with the fuel shim. Took it out today to do some test drives to see if it will happen again. What are some of your thoughts on the matter?

Has it done it since you went back to stock? You could of had the pressure too high.
