  • Filter info for newer SAE 300 Perkins(non HE)

    Hi all and a belated very Merry Christmas!!
    I am wondering if anyone has info on a different water/fuel separator filter on the newer dual control lincoln welders. I went to my local tractor dealer and they weren't able to cross reference it. My machine has the 4 cyl. Perkins diesel 404D-22 engine. The part# in the user manual lists it as a Lincoln #M20840-A. Really would like to find another more readily available filter from cummins, fleet guard, massey ferguson etc.

    Thanks Guys!

    Tried to cross it on the WIX site among others... NO DICE...

    Exact Match for Wix or Competitor Part Number - Search results for M20840A
    "This is a valid competitive part number and there is no replacement at this time. Filter data on our website is refreshed regularly and represents the same data available to our corporate offices."

      If you know a good partsman at NAPA (or most other parts stores probably) they can compare your filter dimensions with data in their paper filter catalog and possibly find a match.

      Hope this helps.

        As someone who works on engines i would be very hestiant to try to get around oem filters espically if it is still in warranty. Fuel filters are of particular concern because many aftermarket filters fail at stopping water and any h20 will ruin a common rail pump very quickly. Now im not sure if yours is common rail, but i urge u to run oem. Now that does not mean your stuck with lincolns market up. Take the engine serial number and call caterpillar they were the source for the engine and they will be able to provide filters at a marked savings. Only filter which is safe from the aftermarket is the air filter.
