Fuel Filter Bleeder Replacement

Duramax Fuel Filter Bleeder Valve

Anybody used or installed one of these? Guys in the shop are tired of getting diesel all over them when changing the fuel filters on our trucks. Plus the fact is greases everything up if you don't wipe everything down.

Open to suggestions.

Never heard of them, but looks like it would work pretty good. Personally, I don't prime till fuel squirts out. I stop as soon as it starts to bubble, then tighten the bleeder and pump it till it is hard. Done!

I use the drain on the wif sensor and drain the filter before I remove it. I can't stand getting fuel on my hands so a fuel filter access door installed in the inner fenderwell to RR the fuel filter and when filling it back up pump until fuel comes out the bleed screw close it and pump a few more times then wipe the fuel that came out of the bleed screw and its a done deal with no mess at all. For this reason we also designed a drain screw in the bottom of our Billet Wif Delete Plug.

Fuel Filter Access Doors are found on the bottom of page 1 and top of page 2 depending on the year truck you have.
