Go to an international dealer and get them. I don't remember the part # but they're about 35 for the set with the aquabloc membrane on the primary.

Glad you found the link to be some use...Its not too hard of a job to change the fuel filters, but its nice to have some instruction on the first go-round.

Thanks, RET I'm still 10k away, but I am glad to have read this. The frame-mounted filter sure is buried in tight I checked it out a couple of weeks ago when I put in my cat delete pipe. A whopper like me with huge hands is going to have a tough go, but it seems pretty straightforward.

Thanks

Yup the front drive shaft on the 4x4 makes it a bit of a PITA to get at.

I used a combo of an oil filter wrench and channel locks, (But I'm 5-7 and 145 lbs.....I could just about crawl up in there and use my teeth if I had to :-)

I would suggest investing in a socket or box end wrench that fits the nut head on the top of the filter cap.

Nothing makes it easy like having the right tool for the job.
