Turned out to be:
ETC6903 filter to lift pump-cheap
NRC8916 spill rail to filter-not in stock or cheap
Thanks for responses
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?
