I change it with oil changes most definitely!if you put any kind of cleaner in the tank or additive that has a cleaner, it picks up all the junk in the bottom of the tank and sends it to the fuel system. alge is rare out there, specially newer diesel fuels. shits gotta sit stagnate for a few years before you gotta worry. even still, on a 7.3 it will most likely run fine lol.
just keep a spare filter with you and change it once an oil change. fuel filters on diesels are like spark plugs on 2 strokes. running bad? change the filter. poor fuel mileage? change the filter. wont shift? change the fuel filter. flat tire? change the fuel filter. as dumb as "wont shift, change the fuel filter" sounds, its actually a real deal and seen this happen quite a bit with guys that never change the damn filter/s.
Only reason I like it is because I am old and that is what was cool "back in the day" (When this truck was new). I also know it is his truck and he should run what he likes and not what I like.I somewhat agree. Everyone is going that route these days, and they all look the same
Good eye! I had loosened it up to get to bolt on the original cover ! It’s all right now !Truck looks good but the 3rd picture down on your diff cover sequence on the front the u bolts is loose. Maybe you were working on those too just noticed. I have a 2wd 97 460 gasser and love it! But really wish it was crew cab 7.3!!
