Workhorse chassis fuel filter

Purchased a new to me 2005 Fleetwood Southwind 37C with 8.1 GM gas engine. It has 43k miles on it and the original owner ( my good friend)Ē thought the fuel filter was in fuel tank, no need to change itĒ. Well I knew he was very wrong and when I got underneath the MH for the first time I took a photo of it and sent it to him. Anyway my question is this- does anyone know where I can get the replacement adapter/filter ASAP? Apparently a hard item to come by. I ordered one from Amazon and it says it may be available mid May/July and another supplier showed it as available until I ordered it and then was told possibly July availability. According to Workhorse manual it is only overdue by 13k miles but I just want to change it immediately. I have sprayed the 3 port filter connections with penetrating oil several times to make life easier. Thanks for any help!

If you can't find a filter for the 2006 there is a way to make one...

2004 and up Workhorse used a filter assembly that was expensive and sometimes hard to get. I came up with a way to use the 2003 workhorse filter by cutting off the later filter and welding a AN fitting in it's place so you can screw on the early filter which is $12.00 at walmart. .



I made a few of these and also sent the AN fittings to other members so they could weld their own..

If you are interested send me a email so I can explain and show pictures if necessary..

Some years later another member actually took my design and made a 3 port stainless fitting that worked well. Workhorse changed their design to a similar 3 port fitting and used the 2003 style filter..

Sorry this is so long and hard to understand.

One on eBay and the guy wants $120......OUCH

Found one at a commercial truck supply for $6.52 + 9.99 shipping for Filter/fitting which has not arrived yet. When and if the part shows up I'll post the vender since it would not be surprising if they have not been in stock for some time and they did not delete the catalogue listing . In searching, the part# shows and when you go to the site it's out of stock like Brazels site. Not even sure anyone is still producing these?

Would rather not fab one unless I have to......fingers crossed

Send a message via AIM to Oemtech
Glen Norman and I took Jack's design and had a "fuel block" made after testing the DIY version. We sold the fuel block for a while until Workhose stole the Copyrighted Design I sent them. I opted not to sue as they had deep pockets. I only found out that they were coming out with the kit by accident. I happen to have the ear of an Engineer at Champion Labs. I called him one day to ask a tech question and he informed me that they were making the adapter and assembling the kit. He even sent me the proto-type engineering drawing. When I confronted Workhorse they claimed public domain. Here is a link to the filter adapter.

Thank You

Thanks for all responses, ultra RV is the ticket. Item has already shipped. I will update if anything unusual occurs when the filter arrives. Very new to this site so much information to absorb!

After reviewing the links to vendors with the fuel filter, it appears they are out of stock. Could anyone help me locate a fuel filter for a 2005 Workhorse w20 chassis with an 8.1 Vortec. The MH is a 2005 Damon Challenger 348w.

Apparently you did not notice the "OUT OF STOCK" at the top of their picture of the adapter/filter combo.

Call Precision Sales and Service on Monday. 205-591-2266 MAYBE they have one.

I'm assuming you already checked E-Bay, rock auto, etc.
