    Maybe it's one-way paper

    [QUOTE=Lee;1185131]It's just a paper filter.
    Here's a K bike fuel filter I cut open.

    I just wondered if there were some directionality component to the filter as indicated by the arrow. Your photos almost would suggest there are none.

    Thanks

    yup. NONE of the manuals or diagrams are wrong. none of them show an arrow on the filter. different companies make filters differently. INSTALL WITH FLOW IN DIRECTION OF THE ARROW! not that hard to do folks...

    Chunk, that's the right way for sure. It's just that boneheads like me might just use the photos to go by and get it wrong.
