7. Place the shell and element in position under the cover. Then thread the cover bolt into the center stud.
8. With the shell and the gasket properly positioned, tighten the cover bolt just enough to prevent fuel leakage.

J 5956 may be used to prime the entire fuel system.
10. Start the engine and check the fuel system for leaks.
FUEL STRAINER AND FUEL FILTER
A spin-on type fuel strainer and fuel filter (Fig. 5) is used on certain engines. The spin-on filter cartridge
consists of a shell, element and gasket combined into a unitized replacement assembly (Fig. 6). No separate
springs or seats are required to support the filters.
The filter covers incorporate a threaded sleeve to accept the spin-on filter cartridges. The word "Primary" is
cast on the fuel strainer cover and the word "Secondary" is cast on the fuel filter cover for identification.
No draincocks are provided on the spin-on filters. Where water is a problem, it is recommended that a water
separator be installed. Otherwise, residue may be drained by removing and invert- ing the filter. Refill the filter
with clean fuel oil before reinstalling it.
