Just a PM. I figured it is just one of those things that had probably never been replaced, and it definitely looked that way. After completion, I had to crank it a couple times, but once it started, it did seem to run a bit smoother. I need to get it out for a spin.TX_TLC said:Was this a PM? Or were you having problems? Make sure you post back with any gains...
The filter was less than $10. You would also need a couple gaskets for the banjo fitting in the pump discharge, a little clip that holds the filter on and a new gasket for the cover when you pull the pump out. I also chose to replace the rubber bumper ($15) that holds the bottom of the pump snug in the bracket. Could have reused the old one, but didn't want to get caught by surprise, so I ordered it and replaced it anyway. So, it was about $30 total. Cheap insurance!RavenTai said:how much was the sock filter? hwo many miles do you have?
oops checked sig 235K,
I haven't put enough miles on the Cruiser since I've had it to even know what kind of mileage it was getting. I went and filled up today, I'll drive it this week and see if it I notice any change. Definitely smoother running and acceleration. I also plan on doing the injectors next.Montana Cruiser said:You happen to get any measurable gains from replacing both? MPG?
PO stated he replaced the inline filter and it improved an occasional stumble on acceleration, it still happens every now and again and I'm wondering if this could be something easy and cheap to try.
Did that stink up the interior with fuel smell afterwards? (if yes, I wouldnt want to do it in the winter when I couldnt leave the windows down).
I did not drain it when replacing the filter sock - my tank was about 2/3rd full. I have heard that fuller is safer i.e. an empty tank will explode, while a full tank will burn.As to opening the gas tank, was the gas drained first? Siphoned off to plastic tanks?
Good points, thank you.I did not drain it when replacing the filter sock - my tank was about 2/3rd full. I have heard that fuller is safer i.e. an empty tank will explode, while a full tank will burn.
