As a Diesel 'newbie' and not even a Shade Tree Mechanic it would be VERY helpful for me to be able to read what others have posted based on their experiences.

Try using the SEARCH function that is available to you.Many of these topics have been discussed many many times.Tons of reading archives.Serpentine belt r&r and the taillight issues for example there showed be lots of info in archives and not all that long back.

I just tried to search "fuel filter" and the search feature seems to be down. I would like a step by step on how to change the fuel filter. Someone mentioned horsehauler has a write up but once again the search seems to be down.

I did mine the first time by looking at youtube. That being said I did a search here trying to find this topic and came up with nothing. I know searchs are best kept simple, I keep telling people that on our hunting and fishing site. But for some reason here I just have a terrible time with the search. What am I doing wrong.

specifically included will be information for wiring the optix units. I will also cover the installation of the earlier Diprocol units before the Optix series.

My brake pedal is very soft. It goes down almost to the floor before I get any stopping power. It then takes several seconds to return. I have changed the master cylinder. It didnt help, Changed again just incase. Still no help. Is my next step the hydro booster? Please help. Thanks
