I know you can see fuel in the filter but what you can't see is what is on the other side of that paper filter. I could be wrong about this, was part of a problem I had BUT my wrong only would cost a few bucks with no shipping and maybe 5 minutes time to try.
It is not only the filter but I am changing almost the entire fuel system with the exception of the carbs. As per the carbs I followed Norms procedure and cleaned all the jets and other components. I am pretty sure the carbs is cleaner than my underwear though,,,heheheheh...lol. I just want to cheer up...and think positive..Thanks man.
