Alligator Cat Adapter

Does anyone have this adapter do have to take out the ball valve or do you just screw the adapter on with the filter. Don't know much about it and seen it on the alligator site for $85.00 and could you use a Donaldson filter with the water seperator on it in stead of the cat filter thanks for the info.

You dont have to take the check ball and spring out but they recommened you do for bettet flow, and yes you can use the donaldson filter instead of the cat filter

I don't that brand adaptor, removing the ball and spring was easy! Get the gasket kit to rebuild the head. Whatever adaptor you choose the better filtration is worth it!

Agreed I have the underground diesel adapter with the 1 micron filter and its definitely worth it. Payed its self off the first filter change. Now if only the oil centifuge will pay its self off already

Its just a centrifuge run off oil pressure and filters out particles as small as 1/10 of a micron. And yes you still use your standard oil filter. Its just a secondary filter. Running mobil delvac full synthetic with a donaldson spin on filter and the centrifuge I run 15k before changing oil and filter and thats only for peace of mind. The oil still looks slighty clear when drain it.
