a bad day

Well I had my fpr shimmed and for the second time it blew the fuel filter o ring out in the middle of town. so i get a ride and get a new filter and finally make it home and decide to take the shim out I was in a hurry and about half ticked off and twisted the housing ended up costing me $35 plus new fue filter. has anybody else had problems with the o ring?

which oring? The drain valve oring? That sounds odd. What psi did you have it shimmed to. I've had mine as high as 85psi for a couple of months with no problems.

That's weird, ton of guys run +70PSI without any issues of the filter cap o-ring being blow out?

Are you still running the factory fuel filter housing cap? If so, maybe it's flexed/warped/deformed plastic, after all the times it's been screwed and unscrewed? I use Baldwins filters, it has the filter attached to a new cap, I'm not sure if it's any better or worse, but the guys at the local big rig shop recommended it when I just went in to look around.

Plus on the bright side, if you get the fuel filter and o-ring from Ford it costs just as much and maybe more as Baldwins filter.

Dave works next door to an independent truck parts store. They handle everything you could need for a heavy duty truck including tools and shop supplies.

Baldwin makes good filters, but I have always been afraid of their 7.3 fuel filters. When the Superduty first came out, a friend of mine had nothing but trouble with the lid on the Baldwin filters. He blew out 3 filters on a trip to Florida with a bone stock truck. He ended up buying a Ford filter and cap to get him home. I don't remember the details, but Baldwin acknowledged that they had a problem and it has since been corrected.
