What kind of fuel filter does a C-15 use?
We found out the hard way, the C-15 engine has to use CAT fuel filters. The other filters starve the engine. I know it sounds bizarre, but, thats what we had to do to get rid of a horrible vibration. It only took eight times and Lemon Law to get the problem fixed. Good Luck
