where is the cheapest place to get;

baldwin pf7977 someone said on this site they get them for $7.00?

the new cummins Venturi Combo Lube Filtration



***UPDATE***


Venturi Combo Lube Filter # is LF9028

Fleetguard stated that the filter will filter 30Microns @ 98.7% and 5 Microns @ 95%. Fleetguard also stated that the oil change interval is "5000 miles past manufactured recommended change, then send in oil sample and if the sample is good then you can go for another 5000 miles. The tech also said that its is a dual part filter and that while the full flow filters @ 30 microns, 12% of the oil is separated and filtered @ 5 microns. This sounds to like the Amsoil style setup but with just one screw on filter and a different change interval. A lot less work.

If I am correct this will extend oil change intervals and filter down to a whopping (30 microns then to ) 5 microns. This filter could give you and extra 10,000 miles between filter/oil changes (I change my filter @ 5000 and my oil @ 10,000miles). This would greatly reduce my costs on filters and oil, mainly oil. While still getting 5 micron filtering.

Baldwin BD7317 Dual-Flow Oil Filter Baldwin BD7317 Dual-Flow Oil Filter Venturi replacement/cross reference filter

http://www.baldwinfilter.com/literat...ts/form331.pdf

When I looked up the cross reference this what I found. Baldwin stated that thier filter the BD7317 was a dual pass venturi that is rated @ 20 microns full flow and 10% was filtered @ 5 microns . The tech could not give any more info than that (as far as change intervals). This filter is a direct replacement for the fleetguard LF9028 and is much cheaper.

After calling Baldwin back and talking to an engineer named "Randy" he stated that the filter has the same filter components as fleetguard and if Fleet guard LF9028 is an extended service filter then the Baldwin BD7317 would have the same service life if not better, it is just not printed/marketed as such by Baldwin. In my research I see that they also use the filter for hydraulic fluid filtering and maybe that has something to do with lack of "extended service interval" info.

thanks in advance
i once asked a pimp in DaNang that same question? he said you want #1 young virgin, gonna cost you bucu MPC GI. poor thing must have been all of 14 years old and had syphillis dripping from her eyes.
guy gets what he pays for I guess:thumbsup:

the shipping on filters will kill you and any cheap internet price.

call around to the authorized Cummins dealers in your area for PF7977 filters, all that work on the 5.9 ISB carry them at a good price and no shipping. I buy 6 at a time for a commercial account price break but they all sell retail across the counter.
develop a customer relation with your local Cummins dealer, they'll start recognizing you and start giving you a discount % price break like the old school hot rod parts stores used to.

Well, I hope the "rod" wasnt to painful and that the penicillin cleared everything up...:buttkick:

Some of us dont have "local" Cummins dealers nearby, so unless it's cost effective for me to roundtrip 150 miles to gladhand the "local" parts guy I guess I'll pay the shipping on the cheap internet prices.

I picked up 2 pf7977's yesterday for $9.00 a piece at fleetpride in Corpus Christi. When I asked them about the oil Venturi combo lube they looked at me like I was speaking in tongues.
