FYI - on step 10 Biohazard's comment on the Racor was that they don't recommend Teflon tape because it could leave particles in the line

Well I tried it without tape and had drips

However Greasy Bob recommended I look for hydraulic sealant and I found this

Permatex Hydraulic Sealant

Item # Container Size
54540 36 ml bottle

one of the claims is seals without particles that could contaminate systems.

shops around here didn't stock it and wanted $40 to order it - but Amazon had it for $20 free shipping

I think I used about 6-8 drops...... works great.

Well - I need to retract that endorsement - works great for warm weather - but when it got cold I was tracking down an intermittent air leak - finally cleaned off all the sealant and put on Teflon tape - it's working better now - but it got warm about the same time - need to see how it starts after the next cold front.

Nice find. I used teflon tape, but next time I have to service it, I'll remove it and use this stuff.

For anyone who searches P0108 and gets this thread....

I tried one 2200 ohm, 1/2 watt resistor and the light persisted. However when I installed 2 of them in parallel the light went out. Maybe the resistance the computer looking for is 1100, not sure, but one didn't work and two seems to have. YMMV.

Ok, bringing the topic back from the dead....again. I installed the Racor today with the WIF and the Omega thermocouple. However, I immediately got the CEL and it persists. Does the thermocouple have polarity? I could not see a specific +/- on the heater sensor wiring so I just hooked it up. It should be an easy fix, but I have soldered the connectors to a weatherproof connector already and swapping the polarity requires removing the connector, switching, and resoldering.

Also, do the WIF sensor and heater have a polarity as well? I've searched all around and found nothing to indicate this is so.

Thanks

I just installed mine too. None have polarity. What code are you getting?

I haven't had a chance to pull the code yet. I'll check it out tomorrow. Perhaps I just have a bad connection. Thanks!

Yep, it was a bad connection, the code is now gone. Thanks!

Just wondering if the filter is holding up to the 10,000 mile suggested life? Hopefully the filters can be had for less than the $20 plus shipping that I see? Thanks for any reports

I've run the last 2 Racor R25S (2 micron filter) 24k miles without issue. I do have a Carter in-tank lift pump.

Wow, Many thanks for the report! With that much life secondary filtration isn't worth clogging up the engine bay :rockon: And then there's no need to carry two different emergency filters as well in case of bad fuel, or if you accidentally put bio diesel in on a California road trip like I did once. I was so tired that the yellow handle didn't wake me up :dizzy: surprised I didn't get arrested for all the diesel I leaked on the ground at the gas station when I changed the filter after the jeep started bucking

Thanks for the info!
Note: Thread mounting size for this filter is 1"-14, so it will not screw onto an OEM filter head. (OEM filter head threads are: 16 X1.5 MM)
I noticed on their website, they DO recommend using a Clear Bowl (PN - RK 22350-02) in conjunction with this filter which is certainly a good idea for visual water separation!

What is the WIF sensor thread size on the bottom of this filter, they do not list them, are they ½" x 20 like most Racor filters?
Mopar OEM WIF sensor threads are: M12 x 1.5

They are different but the Racor sensor will function on the factory wiring. I swapped the connector and it’s totally plug n play

I concur, I am running a Racor 1/2"x20 WIF sensor PN RK 30964 on my Donaldson Primary filter clear water bowl. :wink:
I simply cut the wires going the OEM WIF sensor and replaced it with the Racor sensor.
