Oil filter heads up and a CAUTION

I've been using the Fram CH9549 oil filters (which were repackaged Racor filters) for 2 or 3 years now. Went to Chinamart to pick up a filter, snatched the box off the shelf, paid for it, and out the door. I thought....I better double check to make sure it's the correct filter. Low and behold......South Korean made who knows WTF kind of will fit filter was in the box. It had a white fuzzy seal on the end instead of the the yellow Racor felt seal and none of the Pat. Pending numbers on the end, so unless someone pulled a quickie on Chinamart and switched and returned an A/M filter for a Fram then maybe Fram has switched again.

Hmmm. Mine from Chinamart CH9549 was the original and I just bought it over last weekend. Hopefully, they aren't changing to something else and I just ended up with the Racor because it was still in distribution... Thanks for the heads up, Tim. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

PS. Oh, but I did develop a slight oil leak from the oil filter cover, despite replacing the o-ring. Maybe my filter was the original, but I got the South Korean o-ring!

The Motorcraft filter is made by Racor, and the Fram CH9549 is also the same Racor filter (just in a different box).


And if you keep an eye on the Pep-Boys sales ads then you can get them for (2 for $7) several times a year!!!

If its actually a fram filter then its garbage but someone stumbled across it and found that the 6.0 filter is all the same as stated above.

You can get the fuel filters from an IH/Navistar dealer for $29-$40 dollars. If you don't know the part# (I don't have it offhand) ask for a fuel filter for a VT275. There will be 2 filters and 2 sets of o-rings in the IH box.
