Writeup: 4.0 Coolant Filter Install addendum

Now, I know that dieselenthusiast has put one of these together, but I wanted to add to his brilliant idea. After all, it was his writeup that helped me do mine. His original link is here- http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1085546&highlight=coolant+filter+ install

What I found lacking in the previous writeup is a SOLID, no BS parts list (complete with part numbers and costs) and pictures of the assembly prior to install. In my trips to the local stores (NAPA and Ace Hardware) this is the list of parts you will need to put together a coolant filter setup from dieselenthusiast:

1. NAPA/Wix coolant filter spin-on conversion kit (P/N 4019) $55.69
- This kit comes complete with the filter base, 3 mounting bolts, 3 washers, 3 lock washers, 3 nuts, 2 3/8'' steel elbows (only one of which will be used) and a tube of loc-tite
2. NAPA Gold coolant filter (P/N 4071) $17.99
3. (1) 3/8'' hex nipple (Lasco P/N 17-8631 112D) $3.29
4. (1) 3/8'' MIP x 3/8'' MIP brass elbow (Lasco P/N 17-8831 116D) $9.79
5. (1) 3/8'' MIP x 5/8'' brass barb air fitting (Lasco P/N 17-7737 119DG) $5.79
6. (2) 3/8'' inline ball shutoff valves $8.99ea
7. Extra heater hose. The length of this will vary from owner to owner, depending on mounting location.
8. (2) Hose clamps $0.20

Total cost (without extra heater hose and tax)- $110.73

You'll note that the parts list numbers correspond to the red numbers in the pictures.










I hope this helps clear up any gaps in his writeup! Mods, feel free to merge this with the original if need-be.

Excellent write up, thank you. I plan on doing this.
You can get the filter adapter at www.fleetfilter.com for $28.94 and the filter
at the same place for $9.84.

Re: Writeup: 4.0 Coolant Filter Install addendum

Thanks. I just found a Donaldson head for $13.25. It says it fits all Donaldson filters,
and I don't know why it wouldn't work with Baldwin/Wix

Re: Writeup: 4.0 Coolant Filter Install addendum

That price is pretty stellar. Not sure how it'd fit where dieselenthusiast and myself have ours mounted though. The space in there is kind of limited.

It won't work. The filter would hit the sway bar. I'll use the wix mount.

Re: Writeup: 4.0 Coolant Filter Install addendum

Obviously the ball valves are to turn the assembly on and off when Changing the filter?

Yeah, that way you don't have coolant spilling everywhere.

Re: Writeup: 4.0 Coolant Filter Install addendum

Hose pinch clamps could be a good option so valves aren't required. I use them when changing tstats, or other cooling system related servicing. Thanks for the parts list,

Re: Writeup: 4.0 Coolant Filter Install addendum

Can we get some under hood pics of the routing of the (I'm assuming) heater core lines?
Please!
