Fuel Filter?????

Hey guys been gone a while since I did deletes. Truck runs awesome with no problems!!! Just replaced my CCV and addded the hose and filter from Glaicier. My question is what in the hell can I do to move/replace the stock fuel filter which is like being kicked in the nutts to change. I change mine every oil change so im getting pretty sore. The reaon I change mine so often is I had to replace injectors before on my 6.0 and that was like a kick in the butt. Thanks know ya'll can help.

Only way to move it is to go with an AirDon or FASS system. Changing ever oil change is over kill, every 10k would be fine. That is an expensive fuel filter to change that often.

The secondary 2um filter on my '07 has been on there for three years and over 30k miles. No pressure drop across it yet:

The longer you run them, the better they filter.

was it 2009 or 2010 that they changed the entire fuel filter setup to the top loading one similar to 2005 models. would this retrofit to a 2008 model. i asked cummins and got no answer. anybody have any ideas. those were a siomple change procedure.

got a response from cummins. simply state they do not make a retrofit adapter and cannot advise changing the filter system. not a lot of help.
