HELP WITH OIL FILTER

I just bought an 05 6.0L. Tonight I started changing the oil, but when I took the filter out I think someone had a WIX filter in it. I purchased the fl2016 motorcraft filter and it looks different than the WIX. The wix filter had a plactic peice setting on top of the filter, but it looks like the motorcraft filter has this built on. I wanted to know if I'm supose to use this peice or discard it. Does anyone have a diagram of how this goes together? I'm dead in the water until I find out how this goes together.

Thanks,

Jim

That's what get most in trouble! If you keep that plastic piece which usually stays in the top of the filter cap,,,,,,it will cause your filter to crush or filter cap to crack. Stick to Motorcraft!!

Thanks for the help guys. I left it out and it seem to go together good. I'll only use motorcraft products. That's all I ever used on my 7.3. I guess I don't have an excuss to stay at home tomorrow since I got back together tonight.

Thanks again for the quick response,
Jim
