Aftermarket oil filter housing?
I just performed a partial oil change on the new F-350. When I took the oil filter housing off, and pulled the old oil filter, I noticed it did not have the 4 plastic tabs at the top that the Motorcraft replacement I bought had. The Motorcraft filter would not fit into the plastic/housing or cap. The cap had a Carquest part # which makes me think it was aftermarket. The filter just had rubber round seats top and bottom. I put the old filter and cap back on for the time being and filled it with Rotella T-6.
What kind of oil filter housing do I need? Did they come with two different ones or do I need to get the proper Ford cap back on? I would prefer to run the Motorcraft parts, so can I just the cap at the parts counter, or is it special?
Still learning diesels, all help appreciated
