  • inline fuel filter mod



    Hi all,
    I bought one of these Puro F10024 fuel filters.
    There is no flow direction markings on it.
    Which way around does it go?

    Cheers.

    At a guess I'd say the "flattened" end is the inlet............
    People I will not deal with: tl1000swill or tlrwill or crazywheelie or whatever it decides to call himself.

      Blow thru it before connecting. Usually a one way deal, if not, as you blow thru, figure out which way is easier and that would be the way of direction flow.

        Ring the parts store you bought it off for a definitive answer. It should come with a direction arrow on it.


        My one is the opposite of what Toledo has suggested, so who knows

          The flattened end is the outlet on mine as well.

              depends what brand it is, I dunno if there is a standard way these things are made or not I wouldn't speculate as to what the op has without cutting it open and inspecting it first.


              It's a fifty fifty either way, install it, if the bike doesn't run, probably a good guess why it doesn't

                Based on changing well over 100 fuel filters in various makes of cars, usually the end of the filter with the rolled over seam a.k.a. the flat end is the outlet.
                Looking for ETI fuel Cell or carbon bimota tank, and a rear seat for the TLR... PM me with those items.

                  Cool.
                  Thanks for the advice.
                  There is little resistance when blowing air through either end.
                  I'll fit it with the outlet on the flat end and see how it goes.
                  Cheers

                    Are they rated for fuel injection pressures?

                    Use screw type hose clamps and not the spring type pictured too.

                      Well, the US ebay seller i bought it from says it is not suitable for injection engines!!
                      This is the one i bought,

                      Its the same one that osmckeown uses in his 'Mckeown's Inline Fuel Filter mod' in the 'Frequent Mods' section.

                      I am hoping the ebay seller doesnt know what he is talking about - it took ages to arrived from the US and i'll be really hacked off if i have to look for another one.

                            I have the same one. my local parts store i went to didnt have the filter that was associated with the part # from Chucks page. I used the end with the flat dish section as the inlet and it idles fine.

                            edit: just read that everyone else has it the opposite way, hmm.
