|matt167||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|

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.

If those are anything like their crappy *** oil filters no thanks.

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.

wow i have never seen such a fuel pump ever
when did gm ever use these?
i have a hrd time believing that
unless it was way back in the 30s or 40s or something?
that style pump is 55-up though
never seen a removable element fuel filter either ever..

These are manufactured in my neck of the woods.

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.

|joe k||Jegs has a canister type fuel filter with replaceable elements the part # is 555-15170|

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!!

This is what I recall seeing:

|pasadenahotrod||Ford used a frame mounted filter assembly which used a spin-on throwaway filter. My 84 Grand Marquis with a 5.0 had one mounted just in front of the right rear tire inside the frame rail. It also has a nice moulded plastic shield around it for protection. Look under any Grand Marquis or Crown Vic and your search will be over.|

Oh well, back to the old drawing board.
or scrap yard

You wanted the actual cannister to be like the cannister on the fuel pump mount filter. If the canister is the same size, you can still get them decorated as they were in the sixties. There was also once a special filter wrench to remove the cannister without damaging it.
Let me know how you do.
