Fuel filter replacement/upgrade?

I'm sure this has been covered many times before but I couldn't narrow anything down on the site search. Is there a decent screw on replacement for the cartridge stanadyne 80 filter assembly? I'm tired of spending almost 23$ for a Wix filter online or in town if I can find one. Would like an always in stock wix over the counter spin on if possible. And of course without losing things like the water separation and sensor. Any help or link to thread would be appreciated.

Wix makes a conversion for just this, 2 options for filters, the one 33123 is the same as the primary on the 6.2L Diesel before the box filter was used. The base is at the bottom.
WIX Filters - Fuel Water Separators

You loose the water in fuel sensor and the heater however. You can find in line fuel heaters, as they did in the earlier applications.

You also loose secondary filtration unless you add another base and filter. OEM was 12 and 6 microns.

You most likely wont find a decent diesel fuel filter "always in stock" at parts stores for less than $23. If you want to keep the water sensor and heater functions you will probably have to by a aftermarket base, filter, and bowl. This wont be cheap either. If you purchase the spin on filters and bases for 82 / 83 trucks you could buy an inline heater but no possible way to wire in a water sensor because 82 / 83 had the sensor in the fuel tank not to mention the 82 /83 primary filter base is a odd thread pitch (1-12) and wont accept any filter with bowl that I could easily find. The part numbers for those early filters are wix 33123 for primary and 33124 for secondary. These two filter bought at a parts store will run you $40 to $50 and ill tell you the house brand ones are garbage you must buy the wix brand or Napa which is the wix filter. In short dont do that. If you dont GaF about the water sensor or heater then i suggest this base
WIX Filters Remote Oil Filter Mounts 24770 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing
Its 1-14 Thread will accept a variety of filters, is well built and can be tapped for bleed valve if desired. The filters that Hog pictures are good filters and will fit the base I list or other fleetgaurd 1-14 bases. Only downside is the set will run you $60 easy. Check the links Freddy posted if you want to keep the water sensor and heater functions the Racor units are quality and you can purchase a heated bowl along with waters sensor that can easily be wired into your factory wiring. You can buy a Parker Racor unit with heater and sensor but it wont be cheap $250 minimum and cartridges will run you $30 - $35 and I keep spares on hand. May need to look at some wiring diagrams to figure out the sensor wiring or contact glagulator if youre serious im betting he can help you with that. Someone electric may know but it may be possible to wire in a 6.5 FFM which will run you $120 for a complete unit with heater and sensor and I hear they come with a new filter just have to fashion a bracket.
