Nuts

Okay,this might sound crazy but here it goes. On the bottom of my two secondary fuel filters there's a plastic nut for bleeding any junk out of the metal bowel. Well as luck would have it I broke one,cheap plastic. My problem is trying to find a replacement. Any ideas ?

For about 50 bucks you can get an adapter for spin on filters.

That's true, I tossed mine and replaced it with a Racor 500, clear bowl you can see when there is crud, don't have to toss good filters because of a schedule, parts/elements anywhere.

What is the thread pitch? Should be easy to replace.

Haven't seen crud for four years, since the beginning.

I had water and crud until I began using Soltron seven years ago.

Soltron - The enzyme fuel treatment for diesel and petrol engines

Thereafter 3 close-date spin on canister filter changes I could find no more water or crud... for all the years onward.

Replaced the secondary filters on the engine with a Racor 500 setup. Glad I did.

Replace on-engine filters annually, including the "catch water" filter. Done regardless. Want the engine to start easily and run smoothly.

If it's what I'm thinking, you can buy the little white nuts from anyone who stocks parts for the Lehman. Try American Diesel.
