Fuel filter stem

The tip of the black tube that the fuel filter slips on broke. Can I run it without the tip or should I replace it? It broke about an inch below the tip and I can see the spring. I really don't want to have to get a whole new fuel filter/water separator. But i'll do what I have to. I was cleaning out this.....



The tip of that black post is what I broke.

So....

I would get a new Fuel Filter Center Tube, but that's just me.

Use a 7/8" crowsfoot to remove. It is left hand threads, so righty loosey!

Throw that fuel heater in the trash while you have it out.

I'm not seeing whats broke. Disassemble it and take a pic. The center piece of the standpipe is not necessary, but the standpipe itself needs to be there. The standpipe has left hand threads to take it out.

That picture was before it broke. I finally located it and some banjo bolt gaskets.

Ford dealer wanted $75 for the filter stand tube
International wanted $9 for the same part.

I'd rather not run it with it broken. I'm sure there's some function to it correct? I figured if it has a spring in there then it must do something.

The spring and little center parts only function is to not let the truck be ran without the filter in place. Mine dosent have that center piece anymore. The outside standpipe is the outlet for the filter. Without it all the fuel will by-pass the filter.

Correct 2 tanks, one tank has a pin hole in it so that must come off to be repaired so both tanks will get some good loving during all this.
