Fram# G7315 or Wix# 33311 these are two common companies that you can choose from. This filter is pretty easy to work with. Caution: use care while working with gas. It is both flammable and can cause chemical burns on your body. Use approved eye protection and gloves. Keep your work area safe, have a fire extinguisher ready, and make sure that there are no sources of heat, open flames, or sparks, near your repair. Also have a drain pan in place to capture fuel during disassemble. You will need at least one metric flare nut wrench for the flare nut. The larger nut, attached to the fuel filter, will except a regular open-end wrench, if you don't have a flare-nut wrench available. If this filter is more than three years old, you may need to be patient. dirt and salt can cause rust which will slow down disassemble. Tapping the flare-nut, with a small hammer, may shock and loosen up the rust. Don't strike it too hard. You want to loosen the rust without damaging the fuel line or the flare-nut. I usually rub some moly-grease or never-seize, between the fuel-line and the flare-nut and the threads of the flare-nut. If you can not free up the flare nut from the fuel line and the fuel-line is still in good, safe condition then leave it alone. Spin the fuel filter off, unplug the other side and reassemble. There is an O-ring between the fuel-line and the threaded side of the fuel filter. Make sure the O-ring stays on the fuel-line during reassembly. I hope this helps, please let me know if you have other questions or just to let me know how the repair went, good luck.
