Hi Everyone,

I wanted to put out a request to anyone that's able to browse at the local yards in your area to seek out a fuel/water separator base for the 4.3L Diesel (Danielle) engine, 1984 model. I know this particular engine will be tough to find but based on some recent pics posted before, a few of these cars still exist. I am looking for the filter base that has the water in fuel sensor probe and related module along with it. Apparently the WIF light in my dash doesn't work since the wiring for it was cut and the probe and module is missing from my filter. This is one very important function to keep water out of the fuel system.

If you need a reference see the Danielle project thread on page 10, post #137 midway down the pics and David has a view of what it looks like. Should anyone happen to find one or know where to locate one let me know!

Thanks :)

In rural area I'm in, the only salvage dealer crushes...the demo boys look for junk vehicles for metal recycling....I do know of V8 diesel in a full sized RWD, but I have no idea if its part would apply.

I don't know if this is a replacement: Baldwin #BF806 (http://catalog.baldwinfilter.com/DisplayPartInfoNew.asp?partnumber=BF806&acoverage=all&istart=20&vehicleref=4)

Btw, is yours/David voices missing in this thread: Oldsmobile Diesels (1978-85) - How Many of You Still Own One Today? (http://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/f77/oldsmobile-diesels-1978-85-how-many-you-still-own-one-today-115831/)

That is the filter, but what we need is the actual water sensor probe.

I haven't participated in that thread. Thanks for posting it.

A GM dealer, if they are subscribed to GM's parts lookup, can search out part numbers.

Otherwise, try JunkYard Dogs
