on a 6.0 your best bet is to stick with motorcraft brand filters for oil and fuel..

Are you talking about a 6.0L? I wasn't ware of Baldwin (probably the best filter maker on the planet) making anything other that a steel canister spin on filter? If they are making our pleated filters, I will buy them.

Yea 6.0s need the Motorcraft. NEED. The trucks were designed to use only the MC ones. Now for 7.3s Baldwins are great.

The 6.0s have some bypass valve or something in the oil and fuel filter socket that only close or work right with the MC brand. That's what I read.

Yeah, I called my local Parts For Trucks, and gave them the International number, and they crossed it to a Baldwin # P7235. I was just wondering if anyone tried these, Baldwin filters have a really good reputation in the Diesel world, but alot of people say not to use anything other than Racor (Motorcraft/International) filters in the 6.0L.

Use what ever oil filter you want it's your motor. The other day I was changing the oil. I had a Wix filter and a Motocraft one. I took both of them out of the box and compared them side by side. Lets just say the Wix one stayed on the shelf . Also tried the Baldwin fuel filters and did not like the way the one on the engine mounted fuel filter sat inside the housing. Again those went back in the box and Motocraft back in. But hey it's a free country use what works for ya!
