I would just replace these two with a small Racor. Still use big filters in front.

Not sure what you mean. Is there another product I can just swap these straight out with?

American Diesel Corp

Telephoning them is apparently best but maybe an email as second.
There is a spin on replacement for them but I have not bookmarked it.

Another site with some info below although don't know if applicable but for interest:

Ford Lehman Marine Diesel engine stuff


Two T.F> threads about the fuel filter adapters:
CAV Filter Adapter

CAV adapter, lower price.

I used a Racor 500 with a 2 micron filter, mounted on a bulkhead with a long-ish hose. Those Lehman dual filter things are cumbersome, leak and you cannot tell when the filters are toast so you go through a lot of them. I remote mounted it because I did not know if the Racor was vibration tolerant. The Racor works fine and you can get filters anywhere.

Sadly Bob passed away last fall. His son, Brian, runs the company and knows almost as much about these engines as Bob did.

Sorry to hear that. Never knew the guy but have friends who had interactions with him. Supposedly, he could trouble shoot a Lehman over the phone better than most mechanics could sitting in the engine room.
