fuel filter, non fuel pump engine

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,
