Just got a metal filter that's 1/4 inch - I think that's closest to my 5mm line. I am able to force the line onto the flare of the filter but is that safe? Would I be able to cut the flare off? Or should I just run some 1/4 inch hose?

im serious. The flare can foul your connection or damage the smaller hose (fighting it on with pliers) if you cant get it over and past it by an inch or so. If you still have plenty of length left after cutting flare off you will be fine. Be easy if nice metal 6mm filters were easy to find.

Yup...used those clamps and I went with a glass cleanable filter for mine. You can see when it needs to be cleaned! Smile

Is there a plus side to using those hose clamps, or do they just look better?

And I've heard bad stuff about those glass filters Shocked don't know how much of it is true though!

Well,......... technically those clamps work better by applying more uniform torque around the hose. But really they are more important on high pressure Fuel injection system. So for a measly 3psi carb line, they are just for looks !

At your FLAPS... ask for 'fuel injection hose clamps'.

And I've heard bad stuff about those glass filters Shocked don't know how much of it is true though!


If the glass-housing fuel filters are not restrained/held down, they can flap around & potentially hit something nearby & crack/break. I run the metal canister fuel filter in nose of car, underneath the fuel tank, in conjunction with the tank strainer & filter screen in the fuel pump. No fuel filter in the engine bay.
