Re: FUEL FILTER 88 80 Q

I should think not. The fuel hose (oh what the hell is the fitting that
fits around the bolt called) has an interior dimension larger than the bolt
where the holes are. It's scalloped out so that at the shoulder, it's the
proper size but fuel can flow around the entire circumference of the bolt.
You want to tighten the bolt to its specified torque.

It stores fuel pressure between runnings for quick starts.

Yes, it was posted a few days ago. I can't remember exactly what Phil
posted but it's in the archives.
As soon as Linda finally sends me my parts, I'm replacing everything
underneath the seat (pump, accum, filter and all hoses and such) as mine is
one giant ball of rust as well.
