Re: Fuel filter housing diagram
I've seen mention of shimming the stock FPR for higher pressure, now I see why. Any links to the procedure?
Also I am working on bypassing my stock element by epoxying the pleats etc into a plug, I have shaved off the "groove" that houses the o ring on the element and I was hoping that would allow fuel to run up to where I thought it exits the filter. I plan on filling the element completly, I had thought about a tube through the filter to allow flow to the center but it seemed like the o ring removal would let fuel up too. Now you mention the function of the holes in the thread I'm questioning my logic. It seems like you understand the filter better than I do (not hard) do you see any flaws in this idea? I will be adding a remote filter. This is to reduce purge times in my svo conversion.
