Hi Everyone

Got the fuel filter adaptar done! Nice piece.

Hi Pedrosa, very nice work, love to see some polished brass rather than the normal cheap cadmium plated steel crap normally used now.

What is the make and number of that fuel filter so I can do the same ?

Sorry to hear the cost of parts and machining services is reducing your alcohol consumption. Stick with it, it will be worth it in the end.

Hi Bob

Popular name for this filter is kx9 (Mhale) - and is a general porpose fuel filter for a huge number os automotive brands.

I showed it in Reply #67 - In AU you can buy a C4891 FRAM (view equivalent chart https://www.pecasauto24.pt/mann-filter-7280260.html)

About the brass, I had to buy the material for turning. The 3/8 pipe had to buy 1.5m, yes 1.5m, and it was just a spare, otherwise I had to buy 6m (it's all crazy, I was told it's normal to do everything now in stainless steel). Brass is brass... period.

And then I want to keep everything in the imperial standard. It's more expensive... less a bottle of green.

Bob, it is not a consumption of alcohol, it is a way of saying that a bottle ends quickly, but the piece we see will last longer. I only drink at mealtime, or a beer if it is warmer.

But it looks nice!

Cheers
VP

PS: Have you see the petter's air filter nut? nice design?

Hi Pedrosa, yes I saw the new air filter retaining nut, very nice to see someone still knows how to use a knurling tool in a lathe.

Hi Bob

While the restoration does not advance, another brass tap saves from going to the container for china. And it's already polished and tuned.

I have been performing that same fuel filter conversion for several years, I guess fine minds think alike ;)?

Much easier to do here in the states as we can purchase a 3/8" to 1/4" NPT brass bushing and a 1/4" NPT brass nipple of the correct length at the hardware store. Only place I differ is I place a short spring under the element that serves to hold it up against the head. Somewhere on these pages is a write up if anyone has interest in it. Nice work.

Hi Butch

I showed your idea in my Reply # 68, and I think it works fine. Bob had doubts about the seal...

Keep in touch.

Cheers

Ah,  I see now. Your element differs slightly from the one I use that has rubber seals that fit tightly on 1/4 pipe. I can find the element number if there is interest in posting it.

Hello butch

I looked for the filter element that fit inside the wick container, so everything was all inside the body.

And yes it seems to me well that you divulge the reference of the filter element, for each one to adopt the system that they find better.
