    Well I changed my fuel filter today, and it seems like it was never replaced. And my luck, the bracket in which holds the filter, the adjusting screw (to clamp the bracket) was severely rusted out and broke.. Should I get a new bracket (screw that broke will not budge)? Or just rig something up?

    Also, question about which way the filter goes in, does IN go towards the rear of the engine block, or front of the engine block?

    Thanks, Alex

    "IN" is from the tank.

    By far the biggest PITA. Id rather be doing a full overhaul.. Gas that came out of the filter looked as dark as oil.

    I broke mine too when I did it. Used a hose clamp to hold it in place. No problems 40k miles later

    Ya, ended up using a hose clamp.

    For some reason, my filter was on backwards when I took it off?? The "IN" should be facing the rear of the truck correct?

    Yes, IN means in from gas tank and OUT means out to engine.
