DieselSite Coolant Filter

Found this by accident when changing filter. Coolant filter supply hose rubbing against the intercooler charge pipe. You can see in the pic the shinny spot on the charge pipe with some black rubber material from the hose around it. Wire tied the hose up for now, 2nd pic. It started making a pretty good hole in just a few thousand miles, glad I caught it before it became an issue.

I had the same problem - but things are even tighter as I have the dual alternators. Removed the inlet valve, and installed two street 90s into the filter head to turn the inlet line up (toward the sky) and then over (toward the vacuum pump). Also makes changing the coolant filters easier

we need someone to post up 6.0 common wear spots for a sticky... Oops better check if there is one <gulp>

I found the vent hose from the (i think) EGR cooler rubbing aginst the intercooler boot clamp screw



Again tied it up untill I had time to rotate the clamp out of the way. The previous owner must have set this trap.

Funny you mention this rub location. Noticed it on mine last weekend and covered the hose with a piece of 3/4" x 20" long black corrugated electrical loom. All better now
