Default Gardner fuel filter

I cannot find stocks of the Gardner secondary fuel filter anywhere in OZ. All of a sudden they have been declared obsolete. Two suppliers listed them, but returned my money after I placed an order.
They are Baldwin PF601, with equivalents Framm C11931PL, Ryco R2056P, Fleetguard FF4011 and probably numerous others.
This filter is used on many models of Gardner diesel engines. They are available in Europe and UK, but the postage is murderous!
Any suggestions? Maybe I should wait for someone I know visiting UK and get them to buy me a few.
Ian

Hello Ian
I've had luck with Mr Filters on some unusual filters. Google will find them.

Cheers Scott

Hi Ian, my preferred supplier of filters has been RedPoint at Kempsey. They do sell Baldwin filters and other makes as well. Both Gordon and Brenden have always found a filter for some of my odd requests. Worth a try. they have a website so an email will make contact.

Mr Filters, Truckline and Redpoint and another in WA all declared the item obsolete. Two of them initially accepted my order, then refunded my money. However, I had not thought of Mainline who are Gardner specialists. They had it in stock and a couple are on their way.
Thanks for everyone's help.
I had recently obtained the primary fuel and oil filters from Redpoint with excellent service.

I've been having a very 'healthy' discussion on engine oil filters for our David Brown Cropmaster. I have found that a filter from a Detroit diesel engine and made by FRAMM fits perfectly but does require some extra seals to seal off the bottom of the filter.
Well according to those ex retired serviceman these do not do the job at all and that only original parts from the UK at a very high premium price works.
Sorry guys but these ones sourced locally do a great job and do seal properly and the oil pressure is fine even on the return side from the filter canister which diverts ant excess oil. Some guys in NZ are using a cork gasket as the extra seal and I have been using a neoprene one all with great results for a few years now.

It is funny how most suppliers will say"no, it's obsolete" and then one says "how many do you want". I get this happen a lot with my customers and when I say how many do you want they say I was told you can't get them any more. It is just a case of buying them in from a supplier.

With Gardner 6LX and 6LXB engines I think it is time I stocked up on spare filters, especially the primary fuel filter, as the old truck has a lot of rubbish in the fuel tank that gets stirred up when I fill at a hi-flow bowser. You can soon tell when the filter is getting clogged - the truck simply won't get up and go.
