7.3 Fuel Filter Change question
I just rebuilt my 1999 F250SD fuel bowl with the kit from DieselOrings.com (awesome $ saver and stopped all the leaks like a champ!). Also obviously changed the fuel filter as part of that process. I have the separate cap and filter set up, not the one piece cap and filter. Got my filter from the dealership as it was cheaper than my local parts store, so it's Motorcraft.
My question is, how hard should I push down to seat the filter in the fuel bowl? I pushed till it wouldn't move any further (very snug), but I'm concerned because the one piece cap/filters I've seen on youtube wouldn't seem to be snug on the check valve tower at all.
Just hoping this isn't going to cause me any trouble. The truck seems to be running great!
