What was the net? Defective Baldwin.

I get the Motorcraft filter kit for my PSD.

I ran Baldwin in my PSD with zero issues, but it is a cartridge filter and one can easily examine it before use.

I did NOT read the whole thread - was that Baldwin a counterfeit?

Seems the Baldwin was genuine. How disappointing.

I cannot comment on the filter in the link, but generally Baldwin/Hastings makes good products. However, any company can have failures; happens to the best of them.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

Use a OE Racor/Delco fuel filter in Duramax applications!!!

Racor owns Baldwin/Hastings. In the 2013 to 2018 Ram world, Racor makes the rear water separator, changes the paint color and puts on the Baldwin, Hastings, Mopar and apparently Fleetguard name on it.

Parker which owns Racor bought Clarcor Corp. which owned Baldwin/Hastings. The plastic housing Baldwin filters for the Duramax are completely different from the Metal can Parker/Racor fuel filters which came from the factory. Baldwin also made a Metal can filter that was Taiwan made IIRC, Haven't seen one in a while.
I believe the Racor & it's painted Delco clone are the only Metal Can Duramax filter manufactured in the USA.

We will slowly see vertical integration of these two filter arms I'm sure.....Whatever is cheaper to make as well.
I for one don't like mergers like this as product quality almost always suffers.

That's too bad about that quality difference but at least it was figured out so one can pick the better filter.
