HFCM fuel filter takes a 36mm or a 1 3/8" socket. I use a 36mm socket.
Hope this helps.

Or you can get the nifty close clearance, aluminum, 3/8" drive socket from Lisle Tool specifically designed for filter changes on 6.0 Powerstrokegs.

I don't think they are exactly the same, but they are close enough that everyone uses the same socket. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

While we are on the subject though, what is the correct torque value for the filter caps?

The Lisle socket is advertised as fitting both sizes.

oil filter cap= 18 lbs./ft
frame mounted fuel filter= 19 lbs./ft
secondary fuel filter (under hood)= 8 lbs./ft

Just screw until seated all the way. I have heard many state that the plastic caps will hit their "torque value" before they are seated all the way.

Just screw down and tighten until flush and it will not turn any more. No need to use a "breaker bar" or "lean into it"... just make it tight and visually look to see that it seated all the way down.
