glenno,

Think that little o-ring is a throw back to earlier models that had a bleed screw on top of the filter case. Same filter is/was even used in toyota trucks.

I might be being pedantic, but I call that one the primary filter, because it filters the fuel first.

Hooroo...

G'day Glenno
Mate I purchased a troopy back in sept last year It also has a second fuel filter. Tell me, is the 1st filter (not the one with the pump on top) the same type as the other one, or are they different to each other??

regards jeff

Jeff its a replacement cartridge type . cost me $7 . I found the easiest way to replace it is to undo the two bolts on top then tip it upside down ,then you can get at the bolt on the bottom of the unit(14mm ring spanner). also easier to replace the large rubber washer that sits under the top of unit.
