fuel filter question

Maybe this is a dumb question, but how do I know which fuel filter to buy. I've read that it could be a cap/filter combo or the two piece type. I don't want to find out I got the wrong one. Sorry, i told you it was a dumb question.

Do you still have the factory cap? If not or your unsure get one with an integrated cap like a baldwin PF7698, fleetguard FF5418 or Wix 33818. Any of those will work fine.

thats what I had to do, take the cap off and see if the filter comes off, if it doesn't then you need the one with the cap

My avatar is my goal for the 7.3

Thanks for the info. I'll get the one piece and if I have the other style I'll just hang onto my cap for the future.

I've always been using an aFe D2 filter with the cap with no issues until recent. Looks like they have changed their design, or at least changed their supplier (their label covers a motorcraft number) and I leak fuel out the bowl now. A little disappointed to say the least....

I may have to switch over to WIX

Just get the filter with the new cap attached. It doesn't hurt to have a new cap.
