Napa filters are on now and so covered in filth I can't read the numbers with out degreasing (that's another day). I don't have my new manual yet but it's in the mail. Starting the service today before I leave tomorrow night on a short weekend trip. Any help would be great.
I need fleetguard numbers for:
Allison MD3060 high capacity filter numbers(not fleetguard)
Air dryer Filter
*oil, i'll be refilling with the standard Delo 400 chevron.
*Allison tranny i'll be using the Transynd.
*Coolant, I have no idea. (this subject hurts my head, haha)I'd like to use the long lasting red coolant with as little maintenance needed if possible. I'd rather not test and refill certain chemicals. Just change when the manual calls out for it. Waist of money, probably, just the kind of guy I am for piece of mind.
This would be a great sticky to all ISC forum members as well. I see one up already for the ISL. Thanks in advance guys. I love the knowledge shared here.
I believe your engine is actually a C8.3 not ISC. ISC has electronic engine control for fuel system.
The Fleetguard lube filter is the LF9009.
The standard fuel filter is the FF5052
The Fuel Water Separator is FS1251
Stay away from their plastic fuel filters! (FF42000)
If you want a no fuss coolant, use Old World Final Charge and WF2123 water filter. This is a zero unit filter with no chemical. It is good for up to three years of installed time. Mileage wise, it is good for up to 150,000 miles but not over 3 years.
If you go to Final Charge, you will need to drain your old coolant and water flush to purge all old coolant. This will leave some water in the engine. If you do not know your total system capacity, find out from the coach builder. If you find that the system holds 16 gallons (just an example), you will need 8 gallons of Final Charge Concentrate. Pout that in and fill the rest of the system with water. If you like, use distilled or other demineralized water. Some will tell you that you need to flush with distilled water......BALONEY! More internet myths propagated.
Your air filter is likely a Farr Ecolite. Fleetguard, Baldwin, Donaldson have replacements that are actually made by Farr with their name on the box but not likely on the label. The Ecolite is a disposable housing air filter. You can find posts that I have made on this substandard air filter. Your options for other filters are very limited unless you are up for installing a better air cleaner that has a permanent housing with replaceable elements.
Most any HD truck parts distributor can supply an air system dryer filter cartridge.
