    Couldn't find any information about anyone here replacing their fuel filter. So here is some information that may help someone else.

    The kit doesn't come with canopy gasket or canopy screws, both items should be replaced when changing the filter. The kit comes with convoluted hose, two clamps, o-ring for regulator to filter, and of course the filter itself.

    The pump and sender unit has a hinged joint to assist removal. After removing 10 canopy screws, lift rear of canopy and cut/remove hose clamp and fuel line (don't drop pieces in the tank).

    The joint has a detent, use a screwdriver (and flashlight) to push down on the lower half of the assembly, that will allow the joint to rotate and then you can remove the assembly.

    Don't bend the fuel level sender arm & float or you may have incorrect fue level readings upon reassembly.

    Follow service manual instructions for filter replacement.

    Definitely a good investment. Saves you a lot of money by doing the maintenance yourself. Most can be accomplished with ordinary hand tools. Like smitty901 say, everything you need is in the book.
