Your Very Welcome Mitch.

I Got The Same Filters Wix 33039, I Like Them Because The Fuel From The Tank Go Thru Them First, Not Like The Org Ones Where The Fuel Goes Thru The Outside First ,I Think This Is A Better Way To Filter Fuel.

But Will The Holes On The Top Of The Wix Filter Get Block Off By The Bowl Cork Gasket ??

I Do Have A Hand Punch, Do You Think It Would Be A Good Idea>>> To Make The Holes A Little Bigger On The Inboard Side ?

I placed a 4 inch speaker magnet by my gas outlet of my tank, I think it's helped keep the rust out of carb. I also placed a filter or trap from one of the parts suppliers in the sediment bowl, every little bit helps.

I went to my local auto parts house, not a NAPA store and asked to cross reference the NAPA 3039 filter and they came up with a WIX 33039 that works fine. It also has a gasket built onto the top of it that seals to the glass bowl just fine. The gasket has a row of small holes around the outside of it to allow fuel to enter. I asked about a small magnet for inside the bowl and the guy ripped a refrigerator magnet off his cabinet and told me "There, free, cut as many as you like," So I did cut one and have material for more if I like the outcome.

pulled out my spare filter and told him to try it instead----no need for clamps, no need for hoses to splice into the fuel line, no need to cut the line, etc., etc.... A lot of guys on the barn know the filter I'm talking about, but for you newbies it's the NAPA filter P/N 3039 that sits in the glass sediment bowl. Of course it doesn't work for you guys with the sediment bulb, lol. What I like about this filter is that once it is installed
there is about an inch of space between the bottom of the filter and the
glass bowl-----plenty of room to place a small magnet to pick up any rust
particles that the filter might miss. I use a 1/4" X 1: industrial magnet that
grabs onto the bottom of the filter on the metal rim. Pretty neat. My
friend is as "happy as a clam." JMHO

Jack

Jack, excuse his dumb question. I've found some 1/4" x 1/4" x 1" magnets and some Disc magnets 3/4" x 1/16". Would the first fit or which would be yur choice.

thanks, Skibb (Home of the Rustest Tank on the Model A Highway)

The Best &Strongest Magnet I Ever Had Was 2 From A Computer Hard Drive
Takes Two Hand To Pull Them Apart If You Can, I Can't So I Slide Them Sideways Till They Come Apart, There Very Very Strong, I Have 2 On The Outside Of My Fuel Tank In The Cab On My 31
