Big thanks to everyone whom has contributed to the H.O.W. It really helped to read through the fuel pump stuff. Saved me some time having seen photos and what to expect once I took the pump out.
As a follow up.
I was going to dry out the paper filter and use it as an emergency backup but this morning I checked to see if it had dried out and when I picked it up it fell apart. The metal end caps fell off to expose the material under them. That material is basically been eaten away by the fuel and a chunk of it was laying inside the filter. Really glad I'm replacing this filter!
