My Jabiru engine uses 1/4" flex lines from the firewall to the carb.  I had been using a fuel filter that utilized a clear plastic housing with sintered bronze filtration element unit sold by Aircraft Spruce.  Initially I was not keen on a plastic filter housing, but with the low fuel pressure and well wrapped in fire guard, they worked fine for 9 years.  That was, until Spruce stopped stocking them.  I bought a bunch many years back, but my stock finally ran out.  I saw a product from Summit Racing that also uses a sintered bronze filter in an aluminum housing.  However, it is two piece with a rubber o-ring.  I am not sure I want another sealing joint in the fuel system.  Other choices I see are paper filters inside either plastic or metal housings.  

What filter do you guys recommend for a 1/4" barb fitting design in a low pressure (2-3 PSIA) fuel system??

Thanks,

Dave G,

Have you looked at the Andair inline fuel filter, you can choose barbed or flared fittings. It comes apart for cleaning. I have their fuel selector, gascolator and inline filter in my 701.

I think their website is www.andair.co.uk

Shay,

Thanks for the response.  They are pretty pricey, but I see they are cleanable and re-usable.  That will help with the year over year costs.  I have an Andair fuel selector and it's a high quality product.
