I don't know if Bob wants to get into this but it might be really informative if at least a few of the best filters could be retested to see how much of a measured amount of water and dirt they would remove. That is a big step up in testing but it would be nice.

Has it been confirmed yet the Racor/AcDelco has changed because I have not seen or heard of anyone getting one yet ?

BF1212
4 Micron nominal; 20 micron absolute
Contaminant holding capacity - 35.90 grams
Burst Pressure - 150 PSID

BF1258
3 Micron nominal; 9 micron absolute
Contaminant holding capacity - 22.1 grams
Burst Pressure - 200 PSID
Includes Anti-Drainback Pipe
So, improved particulate removal, but at a cost of 62% less capacity.
Using the 1258 vs the 1212, with the BF7633 as a secondary, would the 1258 end of life come before the 7633 is fully used?

The AC Delco i got from amazon last week appeared to be the complete filter with two part filtration. It will be in the mail to bob today for further dissection.

Did it happen to have a mfg date stamped on it ? I know it was mentioned earlier that I think anything made after June 2019 would be the new style.

The 3018 I have on hand was manufactured 5/21/19... so close lol. It has both elements though, like the old design.

Pretty sure it did, its boxed up now to ship to bob so i cant check. Im sure he will highlight it if there is one.

edit: i know there was a date printed on the plastic shrink wrap, im just not sure if that is a build date, or some other date.

The date for mine is on the bottom, near the WIF sensor hole.

Inasmuch as I have never found any water in my 1258, I opt for the improved filtration. I may live to regret that though if I get a bad load of fuel.

I called Baldwin and asked one of their engineers what happens to any water if the bottom (water catch basin) portion of the filter gets full of water. He stated that any water in the fuel once the level reaches the pleated filter will then pass through

Both BF1258/BF1212 filter water the same. I think the capacity of the 1212 would pair better with the BF7633 as a secondary filter.
