Hey guys,
I installed a new fuel filter (OEM), with the new copper washers and it squirting gas like crazy on the "Out" side of the filter.

I've tried using the "In" bolt on the "out", same issue.
I've tried new washers, double washer.
I've tried to twist the gasoline hose that goes to the engine 180 degrees, same issue.
I've tried the old fuel filter, same issue.
Its for sure not under torqued...


Maybe I over torqued it causing the walls of the fuel hose going to the engine to dent in?

I've had this before with an OEM that I purchased from CDAN, but after putting the old filter back, it worked like it should.
And the replacement he send worked great.

looking forward to your thoughts,
Thanks

A picture or two would help

Also year of your truck....I'm guessing you have an FJ62. Yours looks something like this?

I would inspect the area and mating surfaces closely to look for any defects in the filter or problem in the hose/fitting.

Mating surfaces look perfect...

I had a plastic OEM filter from Toyota one time that I installed, fired up, and it had a tiny micro hole on the top of the plastic and shot fuel out pissing at high pressure out the filter... Likely a defect in that one.

check your filter for defects or damage.

aka replace it

Thanks guys,

I'm pretty sure I over-torqued these banjos in the past...

I tried to clean the mating services on the washers, hoses and bolt with sandpaper, but same issue.

For now I have a temporary solution using pieces of fuel line as washers.

But I'll have to order part 144 and a new bolt I recon.
