Has anyone changed the fuel filter on an LBZ yet? I was looking at one on a Dealer lot, & it looks like the AC lines have been relocated, & I'm not sure you can actually change the ff the way that Eric describes in the above link. Anyone know for sure?
i remove my liner everytime i do it. the little clips have held up, but i ruined the bigger fastener the first time i took it out. did an aluminum rivet-nut to the metal flange it was on and have a 1/4' bolt and large washer on it now.
I took the air intake tube off and that really helps and there is only two screws that hold it on. This gives you alot more room to work. Use the strap wrench that helps! Took about 15-20 min. Longer if first time but its getting easier!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a pack handy, but only in case one rolls under the truck and I can't find it or if one gets trashed taking it out.
Yes, the filter easily comes out through the lines from the top... I just like to recommend removing the liner at least once while the truck is fairly new, if only to become more familiar with how things go togther and come apart.
You'll also "discover" your block heater when you pull the liner
Its all personal preference. I myself pull the liner, I find it easy to do and it makes it easier to get to the filter and see what I'm doing. I'm not in any hurry so its all about what works best for you.......Eric (in my sig) sell the liner clips by the bag if you go that route. I've reused most times but once in a while you replace one.....Bill
I don't like spilling but some of the guys who don't pull the liner put a bag around the filter while they take it out the top....I havn't tried it but sounds like a good idea
