General Ike Posted January 8, 2017 Share Posted January 8, 2017 So we got the general Ike fired up today with absolutely no issues whatsoever until I pulled out onto the road. Started smelling diesel fuel pulled over and found that what appears to be the fuel filter attached to the firewall just behind the turbo charger on the 6V 53, was Leaking excessive amounts of fuel from where the filter meets the filter housing. I'm assuming that this is because the gasket is shot from sitting. Is this a simple unscrew the old filter and put a new filter on? Will the system lose prime when I go to do this? I assume that I should fill the new fuel filter with diesel fuel prior to installingSent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Quote Ed Smith1957 B85F 1242 "The General Ike" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
