I'm new at this and haven't done t myself, but I believe I've read that the black plastic center standpipe is reverse threaded so it doesn't want to unthread itself if the fuel filter was to be really stuck while removing the fuel bowl cover.

I suspect it shouldn't be very tight at all (it's plastic) and you should be able to feel that you are loosening it or not.

Let us know how it works!!

But seriously, it's just reverse threaded, and there is a little spade fitting where it connects to the circuit. Just take it out, put the standpipe back in, put the filter back in and off you go.

Standpipe is LEFTHAND threaded as mentioned. 7/8" crows-foot wrench to remove it. Cheers!
