Since noone has replied this might? help. Had an SD33 MQ Patrol with a CAV filter many years back. Not as a replacement but in addition to the existing filter, installed by diesel mechanic. Very good investment for a diesel methinks - easy to see if the fuel is clean, no H2O etc. Simple to 'operate', just every now and then drain and clean bowl, replace filter as required, reprime pump.

I have one of these on my 4.2TD GU. Take off the original filter and added a "head unit" That allows the use of the CAV filter.

Bought the lot from 4WD Systems in Adelaide. Was about $90 at the time with two filters. Simple bolt in replacement and has glass bowl to see any crud or water in the bottom. Filters are now less than $10 to replace.

Hope that helps.
Cheers

G'day, just a quick question, does the original water alarm fit back to the new filter? Thanks in advance. John

I fitted one to my 2000 3l GU patrol, and no the water sensor does not work. The other issue was that its location, replacing the genuine filter, made it all but impossible to see any build up of crud or water!
