Air filter number?

Local part store can not look up the filter numbers for us as their system does not list the F53, motorhomes, or anything other than regular cars and pickups.

Any of you know the filter number for air, crank case vent and gas?

1998 Windsport. F53 460 V8

You have a 1997 F53 and that is more than likely why it did not come up.
Ford did not make a 1998 F53.

That's the Ford number I thought your MH would take too. As for fuel I think it is FG872 and the crank is FA1603. I'm glad you did not ask about the removal of your air filter because that's a whole different task, next to being a 2-4 hour project it is a PITA. I'm still trying to gather enough courage to tackle this project on mine, I started it once and gave up.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Thanks got the air and crank case filters changed. Took about 1.5 hours.

Oil change, ez-breezy

Now if I can just figure out how to change out the gas filter. After 45 minutes of rolling around under the camper I came to the conclusion it is just too hot to be out there today. 95f..

To change the fuel filter spray WD-40 into it at both ends.
Then twist the fuel filter to the brake lines to brake the "O" rings loose.
Then insert the fuel line removal tool all the way in and push the fuel line more into the fuel filter and the tool will go in a little bit more.
Then while holding the tool all the way in pull the fuel line out of the fuel filter.
Repeat the above for the other end.

To put it on just push the fuel lines into the fuel filter and you will hear a snap sound.

Fuel line removal tool?

Oops. I don't think I have one. Please tell me this is not a Ford dealer item.

Do not try to remove it with out the tool as you will destroy the locking device.
No it is not a Ford tool.
You can buy them at any auto part store.
Just do not buy the scissor type as the lip is not deep enough.

I like the ones like the one in the photos below:



But have used these also:

Bill, thanks for your insight on the tool selection! I've read where there appears to be a few different selections of this fuel line removal tool. I certainly do not know which one is any better than the other. I think my son has the white ones you show but unfortunately he is up in Williston, ND working so looks like I get an opportunity to go to the parts store.

Virago-Rider, doesn't appear you wasted much time getting to and replace your air and pvc filters. You have given me positive note.

On the air filter, I removed the 5 hoses.. 2 large in the rear, 2 small on one side, 1 small below the two large.
Removed the "elephant trunk" mount thingy on the front. Remove the two mounting bracket bolts. Then wiggle the air box out rearward.

I just cleaned and recharged the banks air filter on my 99 V10. Not to much of a problem to get the old filter out but getting the band that holds the two sections together was a PITA.

It is difficult to get the band to fit properly on the back side of the air filter housing. Finally was able to get it back together.
