So I had a long paragraph typed out explaining my situtaion and then I accidentally clicked out of my browser while trying to upload a photo
... So I will just skip the majority of my story and go to the point.
I have a 1991 b700 6.6 diesel.
I removed my old FFWS (fuel filter water separator) since it was about 16 years old and 50,000 miles old. I looked up a cross-reference number to get a wix filter and came up with wix 33211. I ordered the wix filter from rockauto.com (on a whole-seller closeout) and got a fram ps7169.
There is about a 1.5-2 inch height difference between the ford filter and the fram filter. The filter on the left is the ford (factory part) and the filter on the right is the fram.
Since WIX Filters - Products Catalog Home
stated that the ford filter and the wix filter were interchangeable
WIX Filters - Products Catalog Home
also stated that the fram and wix filter are interchangeable does that mean the fram filter will work for me, even though there is a size difference???
I am assuming that it will work, however I want to be more sure since you know what they say about assuming.
