This is why it's recommended to run Motorcraft filters.

To flush your system correctly, it is an all day event.

Bryan, I'm just curious as to your reasons for having a negative opinion about Bill Huit. I've been on this forum for several months and have read many of your posts. Obviously, you have an extensive knowledge base and your contribution to this forum is invaluable. However, I've also reviewed Bill Huit's videos, and for the most part he seems knowledgeable and his recommendations are consistent with the info I read on this forum (with the exception of his recommendation to use Ford Gold--that seems like a red flag to me).

Although you make not care for his personality, is there a problem with the info he provides? My knowledge base is pretty limited--I know just enough to be really dangerous under the hood of my truck. So, I need to be able to gauge when I'm getting good info and when I'm not.

ive watched almost all of his Videos, even his comparison between the 7.3, 6.0 and 6.4. everything i learned from him, i also read on this forum. i like his tear down videos of catastrophic failures of 6.0's. it really gave me alot of info of what not to do, and what to look for. his video on "buying a used 6.0" was great.

i would suggest Ford filters or equivalent, only problem is, i dont, i use our Fleetguard filters from work. i figure if International uses them on a Semi, they are good, plus the fuel filters look just like the ford fuel filters i removed. im also using a Fleetguard Stratapore spin on instead of the drop in ford oil filter. almost 3k on this oil change, and the oil looks like i just changed it in yesterday.
