What Size sockets are needed?
Where did you buy yours and how much?
Did you get 6 point or 12 point?
36 mm, I have a 6 point. You can buy them anywere, nothing special.
Been to 2 different Advance Auto Parts, 1 O'rielly's, and 1 Sears. Bought a Craftsman 12 point just in case but so far no 6 point low profile. So far seems like a big special deal to find a 6 point low profile socket.
Have 2 others Napa and Carquest I'll try next or try to run down the K&D truck.
I don't think it matters if it's a 12 or 6, shallow or deep.
I got mine here:
Ford Diesel 6.0 L 6.0L SuperDuty Oil Fuel Filter Socket: eBay Motors (item 360277245135 end time Jul-30-10 18:56:52 PDT)
Works perfectly, has to be shallow to fit the fuel filter and clearance available on Rach's Excursion.
Hope it helps.
an oil filter wrench works great on the fuel filter
Lisle tools. I have the 14650 set that has three low pro sockets. Should be able to get them through napa or other parts stores or ebay.
Got my Lisle socket on Amazon.
