6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

I was told and sent an e-mail back sometime ago adressing and issue with NAPA Fuel filters not having the water bloc. Does anyone knowing anything about this or know where on the internet I can find info on that? Ford Dealer here said that if it did not have the water bloc (The cover over the outer part of the filter) it would most likely cause concern if there were ever a repair issue,

Thanks

Re: 6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

binkleyk,

Welcome aboard.

Its been pretty well hashed around here that the "best" fuel filter is a MC w/ the water block. Look in the box, and if it doesn't have a sheath over the pleats, I'd pass. The dealer is correct - it could cause a concern, and possibly a denial of warranty, but that would most likly happen anyway if it looks "fuel related".

Its also a good idea to add your truck w/ any & all mods to your signature, so that when you ask questions, we have a base idea of what you're dealing with. Then as specific questions come up, we can narrow it down. Also, location is good as some problems can be climate / altitude related.

Re: 6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

Try going to the local International Dealer to get them. I don't have the part number handy right now, but I would bet they have sold some of them to Powerstroke owners already.
The filter they use has the water membrane, and usually costs around $30.00 out the door. Good people to get to know.

Re: 6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

Here is the International part number. It is the filter kit for the VT275 engine. These filters are also used for the 6.0 Power Stroke engine. This kit contains both the frame filter and the engine filter. The frame filter does have the water separator that the NAPA filters and some WIX filters do not have.

International: 18471-70C92 (dual fuel element service kit for VT275)

Re: 6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

I just replaced my filters with Napa golds a week ago and i noticed when installing that there was no outer layer on the HFCM filter. its been buging me ever since. so today i went to international and got replacement filters for peace of mind. IH filters were cheaper also so that was nice.

Re: 6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

NAPA lost my trust too. The oil and fuel filters are different now that NAPA is manufacturer them vice buying and repackaging Racor.

Go to Diesel Filters Online for some of the best online prices. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: 6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

The NAPA Gold filters I used had the water bloc sheathing on them. Have they changed the filters? I think the filters were made by Wix...

Re: 6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

Yes. NAPA changed the filters. The water separation membrane is no longer part of the filter, plus they are way overpriced. I paid $83 several weeks ago, opened the box and noticed the difference. I returned the filters and ordered Racor for $53 (S/H, tax included).

I checked two local Ford dealers. The MSRP on the Mortorcraft filter is $70.92. One dealership selling at MSRP. The second for $89.

Re: 6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

Well I made the post in the first place, becasue I was told that the NAPA filters did not have the water bloc, I began to have a problem with water in the fuel light, and there was infact water, I changed the filters, I then found out that the NAPA filters were not correct becasue they did not have the water bloc, I changed mine right away, I am glad that I did becasue I found that these filter were not doing a good job in removing water, also FORD Dealer told me that if there were ever an issue the filters would be an issue. I contacted NAPA and they seem to know nothing about it, however I had got an e-mail sometime ago detailing with the problem and that NAPA had agreed to change filters, and yes it was WIC, I know that the filters are not correct, I however am looking for the information that should be somewhere on the internet that talks to this issue with the NAPA filters.

I know that I was at the local NAPA Store and they still have old ones in stock and they do have the replacement filters with the bloc and they are the RACOR filters. However they do not know anything about this, we had one of each filter on the counter and the manager said that it was just becasue they had change the manufacture, the FBI would call this a CLUE?

Re: 6.0 NAPA Fuel Filters

Ok, so u know which one to use now.

Your Q. should be in archives here. Sorry, no link. I do recall sometime ago this was discussed in great detail w/links about "aqua block" & why important ff has it. Google search might show?

FWIW..Others also replied they used ff without the block with no problems. My only experience is with m/c & itec ff. Also draining HFCM regularly is a good practice.
