RE: [DML] Re: Fuel filter



6195 had one of those epoxied pickup screens in it too. After seeing the picture I pulled the pump last night and the epoxy was also deteriorated to the point where the hose barb pulled free from the pickup screen with almost no effort at all. I can post pictures, but how many pictures of failed epoxy do we really need to see?
 
Anyway, a few years back John offered free replacement screens for people who had the originals. I believe the reason given for offering the replacements at that time was because the originally supplied screen was thought to be too fine and was prone to clogging. In any case, he did offer free replacements. Luckily I had a replacement on the shelf and installed it last night. 
 
Based on what people are seeing with these original pickup screens it is highly recommended to check them now before your pump ingests some deteriorated epoxy and jams up. You don't want to be stuck on the road halfway between your home and DCS with no way to get going again.Joe Kuchan

The "fuel filter" is a larger metal cannister sortapart, and that's where the confusion comes from.On John Hervey's site(http://specialtauto.com/delorean-parts/fuel-injection.html) you cansee the part he sells today and an acknowledgement of the fact thatthe epoxy in your picture was undesirable: "No more epoxy to leach offand possibility contaminate the pump." You should contact himdirectly... he'll probably help you out.--Greg
