Yes there is, but these 3 are the Fuel Filters.

Many people do not know about the elbow filter in the carb or the in tank filter above the bowl..

The pictures were compiled to help people with fuel related problems..

The fuel comes from the tank through the square cut hole in the screen, down into the glass bowl, and then the screen stops and dirt, ect. form going up into the fuel line to the carburetor.

You just have to remember that the screen in the tank is open ended and you can still get debris into the fuel stand pipes if you have debris floating around in fuel. screen only stops the stuff in bottom of tank. My main was plugged so bad that she would only run a minute or so at a time.

make one with a metal slug, a small drill, and a square aor triangle file with flats smaller than the sides.. same with the drill.. use a drill OD that will fit in the 'square' hole for the knob.

metal slug.. nickle, quarter.. piece of 1/4 or 3/16 flat stock and a grind wheel.. be creative.. not but a few minuites of work.. I've made em before..

Ok, so some of us aren't so bright...

looking at the filter in the tank on top the sediment bowl, like you all said, it's open at the top and its only there to catch stuff drifting about at the bottom of the tank and keep it form sliding down into the sediment bulb.

OK. so where does the fuel get into the sediment bowl in the first place? via the brass tube that sticks up or through the filter and down around the brass tube? Or is the former 'normal operation' and the latter 'reserve'?

help us newbies figger it out.

thanks!
