fuel filter is in the canister on top of the motor behind the "Powerstroke" plastic thing. I've found in my searching that the baldwin filter has a 7 micron filtration rate, which seems to be the best out there. The baldwin number is PF7698

ok so the way it sounds i should go into napa and ask for "napa gold oil and fuel filter" here is only one fuel filter then correct? any other filters on these things that i can change? sorry if i sound like a tard here but i just got the truck and i want everything to be right on it. this truck has to last me a long long time. i dont have the 5th wheel or the trailer brakes/lights set up yet but im gonna get on that too. It has a bit of a lift and 35's but she will be hauling gooseneck trailer with roundbales all summer long so im just tryin to have it as ready as possible. Thanks again for everyones help!

The NAPA air filter is the 6637 filter. It's big but it will fit. I farm myself and the filter cleans good and has enough intake to handle the constsant lugging.
