Do you really think anyone would pay the Ford Parts Counter price for this fuel filter when a top quality WIX filter is available at any O-Reilly's or CarQuest store?
The parts are available under any junkyard Marquis or Vic and the filters at the parts stores. Just do it!!

Yeah ... that one looks like it might be OK.
Jegs
I suppose that it might be a good idea to order and carry a couple of spare elements.

That was what I liked about the one that I had been talking about ... elements are cheap and easy to find.

Thanks!

What???
Next thing you'll be telling us is that you've never seen vacuum wipers either! LOL (Just teasin')
-----------------------

Lots of older vehicles used to use a sediment bowl and / or a cartridge style filters for both motor oil and gasoline.

Lot of Fords used a fuel pump mounted cartridge elements (just like the ones pictured in my original post) on passenger cars up until the early to mid 60's. Ford continued to use them on the light trucks for about another decade, and on the MD / HD series trucks with gasoline engines until the late 70's

GM used them on their MD / HD trucks as well ... but they were commonly remote mounted on the frame. (See post #11)

Go here (Wix Filters), and then click on "All Applications ". You'll discover that the "big 3" as well as many other mfr's used this same filter.
---------------------------
As I've already said ... I like the idea of having a sediment bowl / filter between the tank and my electric fuel pump. That sediment bowl also acts as a water trap.

I just sold a $600.00 marine carb the other day to a guy that had experienced the effects of freeze up ... a cracked front float bowl.
I shouldn't have that concern with mine ... as It is destined to become a winter "garage queen" if and when I ever get it finished.

Well, if it makes you feel better ... throw away the crappy FRAM paper element and replace it with a WIX 33900R.

I'm not a huge Fram fan either, but Wix doesn't make a complete assembly.
It does seem to be a fairly popular design, because Summit's #G1503 and Jeg's #555-15172 both appear to be identical.

the fram HPG-1 was OEM for some diesel engines b4 it was turned into an aftermarket fuel filter. I have 1 I bought for my Falcon, but being that's gone now, I'll use it on my rat rod
