because of problems with my fuel-line (the fuelpump sucked fuel and air at the same time)
i checked my fuel-pump and fuel-line and after that i pulled the siphon out of the tank, and the filtersocket at the tip of the line looked bad to me, so i removed it.

My question is:can i drive without that socket?

i thank you in advance...

Yes you can! But, every piece of rust, dirt etc. will be pulled into the fuel system.

My sock was gone when I did the tank. I put an inline filter right off the tank. Easy to change now.

I removed the sock and use a quality inline filter. I never really understood the sock idea since changing it is a real pain.

I don't think the sock was meant to be a serviceable item. It's purpose is in the event something was put in the tank that might be sucked up against the end of the pickup tube and restricting fuel flow.
