Wanted 2.5 fuel filter pipes

Tying to piece together a 2.5 n/a that was missing the fuel pipe between the lift pump and the fuel filter and also the spill rail return line that goes from spill rail to fuel filter banjo. If you have spares your willing to part with it would be greatly appreciated.

You should re-plumb your setup to a spin-on fuel filter that DOES NOT route the return line back into the fuel filter.

I'm just trying to help a friend out and get it out asap on the cheap. I am curious why the return would be routed back through the filter in the first place?

Turned out to be:

ETC6903 filter to lift pump-cheap
NRC8916 spill rail to filter-not in stock or cheap

Thanks for responses

So the trapped air keeps recirculating and is almost impossible to purge.

Hey Matt, I eliminated the loop back to the filter, basically just took the tank return line at the top of the filter off the banjo fitting then removed the short section of tubing between the spill rail and filter banjo fitting and then connected the tank return line directly to the end of the spill rail. The bolt and copper washers at the top of the filter can be reused as a plug/bleed screw but you will need to improvise a spacer to replace the banjo fitting. In my case I had an extra single port banjo fitting left over from a fuel line...I just capped the port with a short piece of tubing & plug and installed. This is now just a bleed port at the high point of the system.

I see you are in Maine...where are you located?
