Got it, mine has Racor R90P filter, 30 micron. I'm thinking to add one more spin-on filter downstream using the Fleetgaurd filter that Mike referenced... Fleetgaurd FF5814

Thanks Randy. See photo. Is the fuel feed hose line connection as marked in the photo?

the stainless line is air,the one under it is the fuel line.
thats where the flex meets up with the hard line running to the tank.

Default Replaced 2 Fuel Hoses

Update:
WOG recommended changing the short fuel hose from the fuel filter housing to the bulk-head fitting. That hose, and the short hose to the fuel pump were replaced yesterday. Today the ISM starts, all good, no more stumbles/stops. The hose end at the fuel pump looks like it had been seeping fuel, perhaps letting air in as well. See photo.

I'm a happy camper, again!

Getting ready to replace the fuel lines on the LX, my fuel tank is full. I’ve drained off 10 gallons of fuel using the drain on the racor but not slowing down, starting to think I may have to delay the job and wait until I burn off some fuel maybe down to half tank and then try again. Anyone have an idea on what level the fuel tank should be to prevent the gravity feed I’m dealing with?
