element (D) and exits through outlet (B) to the fuel
injection pump. The filter element is housed in a sediment
bowl attached to the base with a threaded retaining ring.
sediment bowl, a drain plug (E) is provided.
Air in the system can be expelled through the air vent
when bleed screw (A) is loosened. Optional priming pump

the filter element is changed. The priming pump also
supplies fuel from the filter to the injection pump.
