fuel filter bowl??
hey again guy(and/or gals)
Yeah..it's me and my e550 beastie again. The ol gal is still acting up bad..like getting little fuel under load, only seems to be getting progressively worse quickly! Anywho..limped into the Love's truck stop last evening(just barely) and decided I'd check the fuel filter, since it would be the simplest and cheapest first fix. This morning I pulled it out..couldn't really tell by looking at it whether it was clogged or not, but I discovered, in the bottom of the bowl, an "extra" o-ring...like the one at the bottom of the filter, AND..well, a piece of bare copper wire..about 4" or so long..curved and very stiff..seems to be attached at one end through the back curved slot at the bottom of the bowl. Can anyone out there in Powerstroke Land tell me what this is and if its actually supposed to be there?? and if push comes to shove, how difficult is it to replace the bowl if need be? I REALLY NEED to get this beastie back up and running ASAP. Thanks. OH..By the way, I'm at the Love
