Re: easy fuel filter ALTERNATIVE....YES!
The only problem with this filter, at least in my experience, is that the tip of it is just slightly larger than the opening of the fuel inlet. You have to slightly deform the end of the filter to get it started in, but after that it goes in rather smoothly. I just pulled my filter out that's been in there 4-5 months, and the supports that hold the mesh up on either side had collapsed inwards like )(. Not sure if that was the result of my initial installation or what, but when I put my spare filter in with the carbs on the workbench, I could verify that this one kept its form once inside. I guess I'll be pulling this one out in a few months to see how it's holding up.
