Hydro Hot Fuel Filter

I have an HHE-200-09E Hydro Hot. The unit takes a Garber Type "R"
spin on 10 micron fuel filter. I have been trying to find one locally with no luck. Does anyone have a source for these filters. or is there a cross reference to another brand

Thanks
Dick

I got one from the Aqua Hot site, very easy to put on. Actual part number is FLE 120-100.

NAPA 3109 (~$9) Use them all the time.... I've got over 4,000 hours using the NAPA filters (which is made by WIX). Use the number above or have NAPA cross part number "R" just for fun, it works!

Roger Berke has excellent prices on filters and complete annual service kits (if you are replacing the filter it is a good idea to replace the nozzle as well).

BTW If you go to a oil heat place they have the Garbers in spades, it's the standard oil furnace filter used in stix-n-brix.

Yes, that's where I ended up. I was trying to get one locally so I could take care of it today

Thanks for the reply

Somehow I just knew that someone had this other than Garber. The correct part number is NAPA 3109??

Thanks

Garber R = NAPA 3109 - just changed mine last week.

It's a good thing to smear a tad of grease on the filter gasket before install - helps next time to remove. The filter also comes with a flat O-ring that goes around the nipple on the holder after you take it off... Grease it too to help it slide on easier. Screw on filter and a quarter turn past snug and you are done. You may need to have hose pinchers on the fuel lines - I've never done it without so not sure if you might get some siphon flow or not (Roger Berke might know the answer for your particular rig). I don't get a drop of spill but always have a pile of rags underneath just in case - I don't like the lingering smell of diesel!

Good luck!

I was able to cancel my order with Aqua Hot. I went to Napa and bought 2 of the 3109's for the price of one from AH. They are the identical diesel fuel filter right down to the 10 Microns. Now if I could only find some fuel filters for my Cat 400 I would be a happy man. Do you think NAPA might carry those?

Thanks for the heads up

Dick

Should have asked while you were there...

In the mean time go to NAPA AUTO PARTS and in the upper right part search box enter your kitty cat filter number (or any other filter/part number) check the "interchange" box just above it and see what you get. You can practice with Garber by typing "R" in the box and check interchange... NAPA 3109 pops right up.... Again, NAPA filters are made by WIX - pretty much a good as it gets....

Happy interchanging....
