Default Re: Fuel Filter parts number

I used to get a lot of what looked like black paint particles and rust in the carb bowl and it would accumulate on the droop in the fuel line. These particles also caused the jet and the fuel inlet nozzle above the metering pin to clog, and leanout the carb and just get poor WOT performance. Fortunately I checked the plug's color very often. I also found a lot of crud in the bottom of the carb bowl. Got rid of the tank/petcock filter screen and added this filter. Hopefully none of the real small particles got through the jet before I did this, entering the combustion chamber and scuffing up the walls. I know it also added a little reserve even if only just a slight bit.
