Fuel Filters wont Fit????

So I pulled my old napa filter off which the whole bottom of the filter in the middle is open. I got and get new one. It now has a small hole in the middle of filter with rubber to seal on the post that comes up in the middle. What do I need to do to make it fit. I can't get two different filters to go in. Does that black plastic piece that comes up need to go away?

All that piece does is stop fuel flow if no filter is installed. There's a plunger in it the filter presses down to allow fuel to flow through. You can take it out won't hurt a thing, unless you run it without a filter. Also the filters with the cap made onto them are a little longer and can damage the heater in the bottom of the bowl.

you'll want the fuel check valve housing in place, because it helps align the filter assy. You do however, DO NOT need the plunger assy insdie the rod. Its just a spring device that 'regulates" flow from out of filter. No need for it.

Yea, my bad I didn't do a very good job of relaying information. I meant removing the check valve and reinstalling the housing. I did it about a year ago. Just trying to let him know what its purpose was.

My two favorite things in that vid are;

"The Heater element is an VERY Important part of the running of the vehicle in the Wintertime" (you know how many people have unplugged that heater with No ill effects at All)

And, I think it's in the second one, in the BEST "Retarded Hillbilly" theory of his, is to drill the Banjo Bolts out for more fuel flow (these bolts come in at 1/4" and go out with FOUR 1/8" holes. Somehow he got himself convinced that you need to increase those 4 holes because they were "holding back" what comes in) not a difficult engineering question, Day 1 stuff...

Can you imagine spending $100 on those!

I mean, if everything in the fuel system was upgraded, all the lines were larger, flow double what it was...Then maybe you'd need to do something like that to the connection there. But, in a Stock system, what a waste of time & money.

The area of Four 1/8" holes will easily flow Everything a 1/4" line can supply
