'Morning All
What's the sequence for changing the fuel filter canister on a 1hz- as fitted in a 75 series. It is the standard single filter setup.
I understand the system (or filter) has to be bled??

G'day Signman. I've never actually had to bleed mine, although you should. Just give it a few turn overs afterwards and it starts. But it's no drama to loosen the little bleeder and pump it a few times (tightening it afterwards of course!).

G'day Footy,
Where's the little bleeder?? Is that the 'water' drain tap under the base?

Undo the water sensor cable, take the filter off and empty in an environmentally friendly way, undo the sensor at the bottom, replace O ring on the sensor, screw the sensor no the new filter tight, put a film of oil on the rubber seal, put the filter on firm not over tight, take off the hose that goes to the fuel pump, using the plunger on top of the filter assembly, pump the fuel through when it comes out the pipe reconnect the hose to the fuel pump give one or two more pumps till the plunger is firm, and the job is done.

Cheers Steve.

I always thought these systems were "self-bleeding" i.e. what I do is screw new filter canister in, then press a few times on the hand pump on top of the filter housing until it goes hard, then simply start the engine. Works for me! Actually I enjoy it, my first diesel needed to be bled in 4 places and then you picked your choice of either: a, loosening a high pressure pipe at the injector and turning the engine over (quickly tighten when all air is out and engine looks like starting), or, b, get a mate to tow you a few times aroud the block.

They are self bleeding. also if you have trouble undoing the filter then undo the housing it sits on (only 2 bolts) and invert it this will give youmuch better access toit for removal.
Also te 79s have a cartridge style pre filter - check it doesnt have one as well

G'day Davoe
I don't think it has a 'pre-filter' - I guess that's to filter out the crocodiles & railway sleepers..
If it does have one- where would it be located??
Cheers

was looking at a 75 the other day and that didnt have one. In a 79 its not far from the main one and looks a bit simular, basically the fuel line comes to the pre filter then onto the main so you cant miss it.
From memory the water in fuel indicator is in the pre filer in a 79 as well instead of the main filter
