You know those inline fuel filters, like the one made by BG, it's about 3 or 4 inches around a couple inches wide, about 5 inches long and looks like a little barrel? They have a removable element and it has an inlet/outlet on one end and then another on the side ALMOST at the end. WELL does it matter which way you put it in the line? reason I asked is because I changed where my Mech. pump is and the fuel filter just "fits" better if I turn it so that the Alky goes into the side port then through the filter to the center and out the end. I used to have it mounted the other way, where the fuel went in the center and flowed to the outside of the filter housing then out the side port. Does it matter?

Another question, my new fuel cell has an Anti aeration tube on one return fitting. IS this worth fooling with? I've never used one b4. Does it really cause that much air to go into the fuel cell from the return line that you would need this? Thanks~!

Jerry I wish I knew if it matter which way it gose.
I would think if it was made to flow in one direction it would have an arrow pointing in the way of the flow.

Only if the flow is "marked" as directional Jerry. If there are no arrows that designate the flow direction then you can mount it either way.

I would use the anti-aeration tube if it were mine. I dont have one on this cell, and wished I did. I dont know how much difference it would make, but I'm sure it wont hurt anything.
