Default Wix 33566 Fuel Filter

What are these extra fittings on this filter?

To make it fit more applications, just take them off for a 240, some cars need the adapters.

In other words, there is no way to know unless you asked WIX directly. They did that to make ONE filter fit MULTIPLE Cars cheaply. I haven't heard anything but good things about WIX filters though.

I don't know what you mean by "extra" fittings. In the picture there is one at each end of the filter. That is the number of fittings that are used to connect it to the car.

Use only OEM Volvo or Bosch fuel filters. The cheapo ones will not filter well enough & you'll end up with clogged injectors. Not worth the $ you save, if any. You have been warned. Now go buy an OEM Volvo filter.

And FWIW, use only a Volvo or Mann oil & air filters too.

I'm attempting on a 1975 244-with OEM original fuel tank-to eradicate that fuel filter on engine's firewall, and replace it with this below in the trunk,

JEGS 15178 Fuel Filter/Water Separator

Of course, I want to rip out Volvo's OEM supply fuel line, and replace it...which means I need the right fittings to tie into that CIS supply line.

Hence, the fitting question...

Wix builds excellent filters, using only Bosch and Mann is only blind brand loyalty. I personally used Wix filters for 20 years, installed them on thousands of vehicles and have not had a single issue with their product. The last shop I managed only stoked Wix, we ran them on everything from large industrial engines to high dollar performance cars.

If you have issue identifying the fittings a local hydraulic shop will be able to help.

This post and your first post appear contradictory... But in the interest of clarity, let me try again...

The pic you posted from WIX appears to have an -extra- fitting that the OE filter does not. This is why you asked the question to begin with, right? Those -extra- fittings are used to connect a filter with a different fitment to fit your car. WIX would only do this if the flow was the same. IOW, you have nothing to worry about.

I too have used WIX for 20 years with no issues. They are nothing like say a Fram, or Purolator. They are made from the OE specs, and from what I understand they quite often source OE filters with no markings and market them as their own.

If I keep OEM filter on engine firewall, they have a nice 3/8" male barb with M14 1.5 male, which would insert on inlet side of filter.

Item Number: 68HB-6-MI14

They do have a Pipe to Metric Adaptor, which could be connected to outlet hose connection, if I choose to remove filter:

1/4-18 (pipe male) to M12 X 1.5 (female)

Item Number: 222P-4-MI12


I may do an article in article composition section on this general topic...listing all different thread types, and short-cuts to modify.

So i have this filter and installing it on a 77 245. The original filter has the crimp housing end on the left or outlet side. The new wix shows the flow arrow and stamped out on the left also but the crimp is on the right side. This is from veiwing from the front of the car and its the filter above the brake booster. Do i leave it or swap it around and say they marked it wrong?
Arent the fuel filters meant to flow outside to inside? Or does that even matter?

Volvo updated the different early fuel filters to the same filter that fits the later cars. It may require some different fittings to make it work. As you can see from this chart the crimp is on the inlet side on the early filters.

Hmm i may have an early wix filter 33566 from rock auto. Crimp is on inlet side. The old volvo one from the car has crimp on outlet side. The fittings work fine, its just odd the crimp is on the opposite side based on how the filter is laid out inside.

Default Bosch fuel filter question

So I ordered a Bosch 71039 fuel filter for my 1985 245 B21FT and received a Bosch 71005 fuel filter. It appears the 71005 is the high filtration version of the 71039 and is more commonly used in Saab applications. Has anyone used the 71005 instead of the 71039? Did it cause any issues, lower PSI?
