I also have a pair of CATERPILLAR 1R-0714 oil filters which the NAPA 1798 is their equivalent filter;

Cat filters are made in a plant owned by both Cat and Donaldson. Cat fuel filters are far superior to any other in the marketplace. Usually the oil filters are better as well. However with Legacy engines such as the 3208 they may not have engineered an upgraded filter. Wix fuel filters often do not meet Cat specs as far as Micron rating. Cat uses a better method to rate their filters. Wix does not. Donaldson and Fleetguard may have an upgraded filter for the 3208. It will be far superior to Wix. If you poke around the Cat website there is lots of info. I know that Dodge Diesel owners buy some sort of kit to improve fuel filtering and it comes with a Cat filter.

I believe in CAT filters. I believe they are the best out there. Especially fuel filters.

I have used the 1798 filter on two oil changes now. Started with the recommended Cat filter. Each time, the front filter leaks around the seal. Rear one is fine. I checked with the former owner and he had the same problem. Both he and I have checked the block surface and it looks fine. I've had 4 filters on the front and all have leaked. Any thoughts, anyone?

I had 3208 NA and a Turbo. The oil filters were not interchangeable as far as the mount size/seal. I no longer have the specs, but they were different.
