Angry Really Pissed 6.0 & 6.4 Fuel filter NOT the Same

ok so I just am finishing up my fuel filter change and the filter at the top in the engine compartment is not even close to being the same the 6.0 is tiny compared to the on on the 6.4L. I remember reading back in a post that someone said that the 6.4L and 6.0L fuel filters are the same thats to BS. I friken pissed that I didn't cross reference the filter before I went to install it. So its easter sunday and nothing is open not having a good day. So tomorrow off to the ford dealership to get a new fuel filter. I had an Amsoil fuel filter set for my 6.0L thats what I tried to install in the 6.4L. the bottom filter is the same but top is no where close.

onebadF150, Clarify something. I've read conflicting post regarding changing both fuel filters on the 6.4. Do you have to have special tools??? How do you purge the air out of the fuel system?
Thanks

The diesel supplement in your owners manual details the part number for replacement filters (4609), as well as the procedure to replace it.

There are no special tools required. You follow a key on key off procedure 6 times or so, to purge the air from the filter housing(s). The 6.4 has an air bleed in the filter housing and it will purge the air from the fuel lines as long as the proper procedure is followed. I highly recommend reading the diesel supplement, and or watching the included DVD.

the ford part # for both filters in 1 box that I purchased today for the 6.4L was

Part# 8c3z-9n184-a

but 2ksteeda is right you need to prime the system at least 5 times before you start the truck. I had a blond moment today a forgot to do that and the truck didn't want to start so I was like ***** called randy and he reminded me amount priming the system before starting no worrys after that.

I feel your pain. Had to help my father-in-law on his 6.4l, the Ford dealer sold him the right part number with the wrong filters in the package. Someone had either switched filters with a 6.0l set or the factory screwed up. Either way the 6.0l filters do not fit the 6.4l filters.

My guess is the newer injectors need better filtration.
