back your shit up!!
Yes always back it up!!

I'm a network admin and you would not believe how much important data people think is just safe sitting on a drive. Cloud storage or a file server makes this a much simpler task

Glad you got 80 gb back, that's alot of data

I bought this adaptor and I am happy with it. Couldn't beat the price and how easy it was to install. Took literally 10 min.

So I just have to ask. Why is it that the other filter adapters require taking the filter head apart and this one doesn't? What is better / worse about this one compared to the others? Obviously a simple spin-on is preferred, but are we giving up any functionality, flow, etc.?

The theory is that it flows more fuel. Im dont think anybody has actually tested both adapters to see if there is a flow drop or not. I do know that i have seen 700hp twin turbo trucks who still run the factory filter. so the check ball cant be that restrictive.

YES YOU DO NEED TO TAKE THE CHECK BALL AND SPRING OUT!!!!!! Mine ran fine for a couple days, then last night wouldn't start. So in freezing temperatures with a flashlight between my teeth, I took the check ball and spring out and it fired right up.

I called Alligator specifically to ask if you need to take the check ball and spring out and was told no, just spin on the filter and run it. It wasn't hard to do, but I would have rather done it in 65 degree weather in the daylight when I originally installed it.

Alligator will be getting a call today about this. I am pissed.

HUGE thanks to Dane at Mad Jack (where I got the Donaldson filters from) for taking my call and going out of his way to help me out!

First time Duramax owner....Happy as the proverbial pig in the poo. Nephew and I both bought 06 LB7's. Diesel filtration however is not a new thing to either of us. Commercial boat captains learn about fuel and water rather quickly.

In my life no truer words ever spoken: "If a diesel engine won't run....it's fuel".

From the Big EMD's down to smoky old Detroit 2 strokes... clean fuel is imperative. That is why most marine applications filter primary to 30 microns and secondary to 2 microns.
Keeping that in mind I ask: What is the factory filter micron rating? 10? If it is, then wouldn't replacing it with a 2 cause it to stop up too soon? I would like to have 30 microns on the suction side and 2 on the pressure side.

Lastly: Napa filters are wix filters.... and they are good.
