Conversion Makes Swapping Fuel Filters Easier
“Replacing the fuel filter on most Deere engines introduces air into the fuel system since the filter is installed dry,” says Dave Christianson, DKC Solutions. “You have to bleed the fuel system to prevent a stall. Our conversion system lets you fill the filter with diesel fuel, spin it on, fire up the tractor and go.”
DKC Solutions was founded in 2021 to make the use of spin-on filters a reality on Deere diesels. The prototype was machined out of a block of aluminum and designed to mount to the engine block where the original filter was mounted. It was connected to the fuel lines and evaluated for possible improvements.
“We decided to cast the adaptor from one piece, to make it look like it came with the tractor from the factory,” says Christianson. “We used 6160 aluminum, so it can handle the heat and vibration it gets and work dependably, as expected.”
Christianson says the $240 kit comes with everything needed, including a premium filter that holds more fuel than conventional filters.
