Carter ceramic fuel filter

Recommended Posts

I took a Carter fuel filter off a '38 Cadillac (assume it's not OEM standard equipment) that has a glass bowl and what appears to be a ceramic filter. I can't get the ceramic filter element off and I'm wondering if it isn't meant to be replaced. Would you advise just cleaning it (Chem-Dip, Brakleen?) and not worry about trying to change the element or convert it to a "modern" paper-type filter? Thanks.

try installing a grease fitting in the side that goes to the center of the filter and very slowly pump grease in it with a hand grease gun.

I have used grease to remove the bowl, plug the fitting that goes to the center of the filter and pump into the other side.

                              Good luck Bob
