Question Dieselsite Coolant Filtration Kit Question.

Hi All,

I am looking for 2 inline shut off valves that I can put into the hose to make it easier when I remove the dirty one to put in a fresh one.

Has anyone done that and could you direct me on a part nuber or link that will work.

Thanks All

You can get them right from the Dieselsite website when you place your order. $17.96 for the pair. I have them on my system.

Go to your local hardware store. Show them a picture of the one you want and they should have one.

We use chrome and they are 3/8ths ball valves that you should be able to get anywhere.
3/8ths pipe thread x 3/8ths NPT.

Good luck!

I didn't have the valve's on mine and I didn't loose that much coolant when changing out the filter. But the local hardware store should have them

I have an old Dieselsite kit, if the current one is still mounting above the radiator then you are above the fill line so the bulk of the loss is from what is already in the filter.

I used a ground down carriage head bolt and a few nuts wedged together.
