Post subject: How many fuel filters on a 03 E350 7.3 Power Stroke Diesel?
I have a 2003 Ford Econoline E350 Super Duty 7.3 Power Stroke Diesel and I want to replace the fuel filter or "fuel filters". I keep hearing conflicting opinions on how many fuel filters there are...even from the Ford dealer parts department themselves. I would like to speak to someone in the service department at the dealer but you know how that goes......Anybody have a concrete answer on how many fuel filters? 1 or 2? and is it or are they easy to change myself?
In the very near future I will be adding spin on CAT filters and an extra lift pump to both of my 7.3's. I have already got rid of the in tank screens on the ambulance conversion as one dose of crappy fuel will cripple the vehicle and it is not a trail repair situation. Hopefully I will remember to take some photos and make put up a thread for later reference.
In fuel tank mixing chamber screens.
Fuel pickup modification showing the pickup umbrella but not the actual screen.
After pulling the mixing screens I put this temporary filter in before the lift pump. $6 at NAPA and I can change it in about 2 minutes with the wingnut style hose clamps.
