Re: FL oil filter

Just make sure that it is a lf691 and not a 691a; a lot of filters on ebay say they cross, but don't quite work.

Re: FL oil filter

He's OK, He bought the 691's. I had been watching the same auction but forgot about it when it was time to bid.

Re: FL oil filter

Ok; I just remember searching for these on ebay once and seeing some Baldwins that claimed cross to the 691 but don't for our trucks. I believe the 691 is a caterpillar filter and the 691 is only a small version of the 691a. I believe that the 691a would thread onto the boss, but there is just not enough room for it, nor is there enough room for the filter.

Re: FL oil filter

Right. The 691A has a larger diameter and wont fit next to our oil pans.

Yes! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/warmsmile.gif[/img] Now you just need a new filter wrench to fit them.

[/ QUOTE ]

I never use a filter wrench even on heavy truck engines. Never found it to be necessary. I just put them on by hand and take them off with a large pair of regular Channellocks.

Some mechanics use these (grip only on the top of the filter) but like I said I never found it necessary.

Channellocks work great in most applications. But in this case because the filter is nestled up between the oil pan,the crossmember, the frame rail and driveshaft the only good angle to get at it is thru the wheelwell. I find it's much easier to change it out from below, with the wrench, while on the creeper.

I've tried the screwdriver a few times and sometimes it works but if the filter is really stuck you are sometimes left with a mess of shredded metal instead and then a real problem on your hands

Donaldson’s are good quality.

I use the Motorcraft FL-1995s too. Been doing this since I bought the truck new in 1996. They seem to do very well.
