fuel filter, non fuel pump engine

exmarSeptember 21, 2013

Hi Folks,

Raining like there's no tomorrow here, heading out to the barn to do "odds and ends," one of them is adding a fuel filter to a Generac GenSet. Suddenly occurred to me, I've never seen a fuel filter on a small engine that doesn't have a fuel pump? Will they work with a simple gravity feed system? I've been know to research very carefully, then take aim and shoot myself in the foot....:-)

Filter I have is a Kohler, 75 micron, selected that one as it has 3/16" barbs to fit existing fuel line.

Thanks for your time,

Briggs uses 150 micron for gravity & 75 for fuel pump engines.

Thanks Bill, "Crosshairs were aligned...." :-) Well, got other places to use that filter. Now the search begins for a 150 micron with 3/16" barbs. May just "bite the bullet" and replace the fuel line with 1/4" and use hose clamps on the barbs at each end.

Thanks again,
