Default Re: in line fuel filter leak

While it will still filter, if you've installed it backwards you won't be able to see the build up of dirt & contaminants as they'll be on the inside of the filter element, defeating the point of having a clear fuel filter.

in, from tank

out, to carb

If it's a disposable cheapo like the above & it leaks and/or you've installed it backwards, don't fix it by flipping it around as it'll discharge all the collected gunk into the carb - just;
