I have FE 300 with a DT 466 I think like a 2006 . I have an oil leak so I went under and found it .In front of the oil filter is a big piece that is cast into the engine . Looks like a big filter . Anyway I felt the top and there is a place for a wrench . What is this and is there any trick to changing it . I have no manuals here at work to tell me what to do . thanks

Sounds like the oil cooler but just a guess here.

Sounds like a centrifugal filter. If it is just remove the cap and pull the filter and o-ring out. Reverse procedure to install.

I was told they were put on to remove the carbon and soot from the oil....then IH decided it was not needed and removed them....don't have to service every oil change according to IH, but I normally do...
