New to diesels ! What’s my best choice for filters?

I’ve done some research and there are multiple answers to this .i was thinking this for fuel filter? Will this fit in stock ? https://www.amazon.com/Caterpillar-1...gateway&sr=8-4

Below %10 is low, below %5 is lower, and below %0 is lowest.

What fuel filter do you run
Mine is different, I'm running 3 filters and a JK lift pump.

But in the stock location, one of these are the top 3;
Baldwin BF46062
acDelco TP3018
Parker-Racor PFF50216

As for the DIC % (suggestion) or at what point, it is possible to put together a compund test gauge with an adapter to fit the bleed port on the fuel filter head. ('bout $25)
Clean filter baseline will show 2"Hg.
4-5"Hg is a restriction and needs to be changed out.

This^ will get the greatest lifespan use.

Or you can just follow the %, unless you feel a drop in performance or any type of fuel pressure codes that pop up.

There is only 1 thing wrong with that cat filter. It has no water separator, so if you buy the adapter and use that filter you loose water separating capabilities. Most lift pumps have a water separator and a filter on them, if you have a lift pump than you can use the cat filter if you like.

There are filters that fit the adapter, I'd have to dig but I can find you the part number for a Donaldson filter with a built in water separator that fits the adapter. But wouldn't it just be easier to use a better filter that dont need a adapter? Hookem listed 3 that will fit right on your filter head with no adapter. Personally I run the parker racor on mine.

If you think you want to get a adapter Joe had a used one for sale in the classifieds on this site.
