i need the part number for this fuel filter. Have watched several videos and spent a couple of hours online, but could not find this exact one.

I have posted six photographs with measurements of the fuel filter out of my truck. This filter has a grommet on the top and bottom. Two of the photographs look similar, but one is the top and one the bottom. (I can provide more photographs if requested, maybe bottom of cap and inside of fuel housing)

any detail explanation of filter variations woul also be appreciated .

Does it fit into the stock filter housing in the valley or is it bolted on somewhere else?

Stock filter housing. The fourth and six photograph show measurements of the stock filter housing cap.

For a stock filter I just use a Racor PFF4595, but I haven't seen a cap like the one in your pictures.

Here is what the top of the cap looks like. From eBay, I did not want to go out to the warehouse and take a picture of mine)

That looks like a cap for a 99+ year of truck.

Do you have a electric fuel pump?

No, mechanical pump.

I replaced the pump and removed, cleaned and reinstalled the fuel housing at the same time, years back.

At that time I found a replacement filter cartridge that worked with the newer cap. I assume the old filter probably had a part number stamped on it.
There were some numbers stamped on the current filter cartridge, but no obvious part number.

IfI buy a fuel filter that includes the installed cap will that work?

for example, the one in the photograph below? Or, are there variations of this cartridge/cap combo, depending upon year of the 7.3?

I have no idea on the filters that have a cap attached to them. All I have ever ran is the Racor filter.

I have heard of owners running the Baldwin filter with the cap

I bought a pf7678 from evil bay.

I will try and remember to report to this thread if it worked.

very odd that the 1999 cap and that particular cartridge was used. The best I could tell, the grommets on each end of the cartridge were a tight seal.

You should be able to pick up a Baldwin filter at the parts store

The stock filter for 94-97 7.3L's is the Motorcraft FD4595 (I just looked one up on Amazon and it says Country of Origin: China. :(. Dorman 904-208 is the stock style (separate) filter cap.

The filter for the 99-03 7.3L's is the Motorcraft FD4596. The difference is the 99+ filter has a skirt with an o-ring seal to the inside of the filter housing. Dorman 904-203 is the replacement cap for 99+

that looks like a wix, it comes with its own cap. I do not recommend them, especially from oreillys. get a filter that will work with the OEM cap. I used to own a NAPA store, NAPA filters are WIX and we sold motorcraft due to issues with these and the 6.0 filters
