DieselSite Coolant Filter

I am installing a Dieselsite coolant filter and the ford dual alternator coolant hose. The filter is rubbing on the Rad. hose and the line off the filter head that goes to the degas tank is also rubbing on the new upper dual alt. radiator hose. Anyone else have this issue that has installed this coolant filter set-up? Any help would be great!!!

I made mine and it rubs. No issues yet.
I should probably get a sleeve to put over the upper hose.

I had the same problem. I just hacked the **** out of the stock battery tray and put the through-the-belt hose back on. I wouldn't have been able to get a filter wrench on the filter with the dual alt hose on and the stock air/batt box.

Well gah, ya didn't say that's why.
Usually when people say they need a wrench is cause the filter was too tight. You ask why it was tight. They say they wanted to make sure it didn't leak.
