Merchant 2001-2010 Chev/GMC Fuel Filter Head Spacer – 10006


Product Highlights:

Our custom Fuel Filter Head Spacer allows for more room to service your GM Duramax fuel filter, and is easy to install!


It’s a tight fit to squeeze a filter wrench around the fuel filter with the newer longer filters. GM designed a step in the bottom of the can to help with the problem, but it’s still very tight, especially with the wires routed close to it. 

After being frustrated with this, We developed a rather simple solution to the problem, a 3/8″ thick aluminum spacer to move the filter head away from the valve cover. This is enough room to make getting a filter wrench in there a lot easier, but not enough that it makes it tough to get the filter out of the engine bay. We include two bolts that are longer to support use of the spacer. Install is very easy. Simply take out the two bolts that hold the filter head to the support bracket and install spacer and longer bolts. No fuel lines or wires need to be moved or extended.
