 Fuel Filter

I am getting ready to the recommended 100 hr work on my B7500 and noticed that I will need to clean the fuel filter element. The manual says that I should bleed the fuel system after, but it's not real clear on how to do this. The directions are to fill the fuel tank, start the engine, run it for 30 seconds, and then stop the engine. That's it. Is that really all there is too it? Seems like my manual is missing a step or two. Also, what would y'all recommend cleaning the fuel filter with? Thanks.
-Mark

Mark, on a lot of earlier models (like my B7100) there really was another step (bleed at the injector pump), but on a lot of the later models, there really isn't. What you just described is all that was necessary on my B2710. And the manual is undoubtedly right about the cleaning procedure, but for what those filter elements cost, I never "cleaned" one; I just replaced them with a new one.

My 7500 manual says to clean the insde of the fuel bowl with clean kerosene and to wash the filter element itself also with clean kerosene. Don't see why clean diesel wouldn't work too. Good Luck.

You don't have to bleed the fuel system if you remember to fill the filter bowl all the way to the top with diesel before you screw it back on. The reason to bleed the system is to get the air out that you let in when you screwed the filter bowl back on empty. Why waste your time? Just fill the bowl with diesel and screw it back on, and there's no air to bleed in the first place!!
