I changed out my 1/4" fuel lines for 5/16" today and added a NAPA #3032 inline fuel filter about 10" from the tank just inside the frame rail. I finished up, started the engine and checked for leaks. I didn't find any leaks and it runs good just as it did before.
I did notice, however, that the fuel level inside the fuel pump glass bowl was much lower than where it used to run before. I wondered if it was going to get enough fuel under a load so I took it for a drive. No issues whatever, but still very low in the bowl. I double checked to make sure the filter was installed in the correct direction and it is.
Ya'll think this means anything or not? I wondered if I could have an air pocket or something in the pump, but that just doesn't seem possible since the pump is working and running the engine.
cline48: +1 here. Calling for snow for the next three days. At least it will warm up!

wkwillys: Good morning Rick. I'm ready to send my Carter YS and my fuel/vacuum pump, but I can't seem to get my computer to show the Service Form so I can fill it out. What might I be doing wrong?
