    Carrier 19DK external oil filter upgrade

    I'm going to change from the OEM type that's in the pump to an external cartridge type. I'm wondering if I need to do anything to the regulator. The filter will be downstream of the regulator. Does anyone have any Bulletins or upgrade directions?

    I put one of these York filters on a burnt up 19XL one time and didn't have any problems

    There was a service bulletin put out by Carrier to perform this upgrade. I have been retired for a few years and unfortunately I do not have access to it....so I have to rely on memory. The internal relief was modified to stay in the closed position to allow for an external regulator. A piece of 1/2" or 5/8" diameter copper, (you can confirm diameter when you have access to the regulator) was cut 1/2" long and inserted inside the existing regulator (the spring and the piston remain). This effectively sealed the regulator closed and allowed full pump pressure to the oil filter canisters. A new regulator was installed downstream of the filter canister and vented back into the oil sump. I used an oil regulator from a 19C chiller which allowed for oil pressure adjustment once all was up and running. Hope this info helps you.

    That’s what I remember as well.
