I'm thinking of running this rare Empi fuel filter, does it look to shiny to be period correct with the Judson? Confused

Wow, I have one of those in my box-o-stuff...it came off my 57 when I got it. Didnt know if it was a keeper or just some odd ball tractor fuel filter. How does one identify it as an EMPI?

I would run it if you like it anyway....mine leaked, had an old seal for the bowl...so I seen it as a serious hazzard.

The old seal is just a simple cork seal if it needs replacement..just refer to the photo above to identify if it is real Empi. there's quite a lot of these filters with the glass bowl around..

Its chrome which id's part of the way to tell an og empi filter besides the fitting being unique to them also the ac filter does not have the same exact top the shapes are different ! this filter is also a micro bronz which ac"s do not have! They first apeared in 1958 in the catalog Heres pictures of mine one nos in the box and one without !!! Run it their cool Wink
