I just changed the GF-432 gas filter and cannot get the new unit to not leak. It leaks from both top and bottom. I have checked the fuel line ends and the canister and all looks good. I have used thread tape without success.
My thanks for both of the responses. I installed the original canister and no leaks. One thing I did notice is that as I tighten the fuel lines into the new filter the feel is different. I called the vendor and they will replace the canister but I'm thinking that maybe I should order the 3 piece fuel line kit and replace both.
I agree. Like I said in the original post if you put the old filter back on and it's fine the problem is with the filter, not the lines and their flares. You probably got a bad filter. If the new filter has the same problem try a different vendor for your GF-432. There are some good ones out there and some bad ones (replacement GF-432's).
