glowing exhaust

this is an 86 dodge ram W-250 with a 5.9L. i let it run before and it ran good. no misses or anything. i just changed the fuel filter. didnt look like the one that came off the truck, but 2 auto parts stores had the same one for the same truck. anyway, i replaced the filter, started it up, and let it run for about 6 minutes, seen some smoke and started looking aroubd, and looked at the exhaust manifolds and pipes and they were all glowing red hit, both sides of the engine straight down to the muffler..... what do you guys think would cause this all of a sudden after the filter has been changed?????

I don't see changing the fuel filter as the problem, but lean more to something happening to the timing instead. Could be a computer problem...Sorry i'm not up on the new stuff.

Exhaust Red hot

I had a friend who had a similar problem. His ended up being a clogged catalytic converter. Caused the exhaust to stop up and heat up.

glowing exhaust

you might have left a vacuum line off when you installed the filter.

there is no catalytic converter. theres just straight pipes coming half way back and into a new muffler, which was also glowing.

all the vaccum lines are hooked up and where they should be. the only other thing i did besides the filter was i hooked the air cleaner all up, with the vaccum lines and everything in place, and the breather filter. would that have anything to do with it? this one has me stumped. its almost like its running lean, but i cant adjust the carb.
