    Tried to change fuel filter

    it came unscrewed fine from the 2bbl Holley (teflon tape) and the freakin thing is welded (not literally) to the insert that goes into the fuel line and then threads into the filter (no teflon tape). The hex nut on the thing wasn't great to begin with and now is completely stripped (didn't even budge after I sprayed it w/ lube). Put the old filter back, but still want to replace it. Im I could figure this one out w/ a trip to the store or two, but if anyone knew what part I need and where to get it right off the top of their head that would be awesome. Thanks in adv.

        Dont. I have one and every few weeks it loosens up and leaks on my motor. Which is bad news when your dizzy and everything is right there.

            I run a pair of the glass ones on the boat, one per motor, no trouble so far. Been on there about 3 years now.

                Ah, mine are metal ones from Advance. Still cheap tho, like $10 each. They don't have the interchangeable plastic fittings for the lines though. The end caps on mine are metal and the cap and line nipple are a one piece thing. I've seen the other kind that have a plastic nipple for the fuel hose connection tho.
