Fuel tank question
Last night I replaced the fuel filter and was kind of wondering just how much pressure to put on the locking ring to hold the filter in place when tightening. I removed it by tapping one of the lugs with a piece of wood and a hammer, it came off pretty easy. When I re-installed I hit it hard enough that the lug broke off, (not to worry, there are lots to use). Does anyone just hand tighten it, I'm a little concerned with leeks.
By the way, I was amazed at the gunk that came out of the intake side of the fuel filter, makes it seem like it was a worthwhile job.
