Goldenrod Spin-On Fuel Filter - 3/4in. Fittings, Model# 595-3/4
Very Poor Filtration
Be advised that this filter only has a 30 micron "absolute" and 10 micron "nominal" rating! This means that dirt particles as big as 10 microns will only be removed from your fuel 50% of the time. Today's diesel injection systems will sustain damage with dirt as small as 7 microns! With a 1"-12 thread pitch and a gasket sealing surface of 2.4-2.8" diameter, you'll need to find a better filter to use. The head itself is OK- the filters are poor for injection systems running at 25-30,000 psi!

Tuthill Fuel Transfer Pump Filter
Worked great, we installed it on a Tuthill Fuel Transfer Pump and pumped 400 gl of Biodiesel from a ships fuel tank into 55gl drums. We cleaned out the fuel tank, (filtered the fuel twice) and returned it to the tank. Great value.

Add a filter!
An easy way to filter any fluids, especially some that you may be pumping with a hand pump. Threaded to fit in almost any line with NPT and has an easy to change screw-on filter that will catch most debris, rust, sediment, or water. Very valuable when pumping fuels to prevent fuel pump, injector pump, or injector damage. My only complaint was that I wasn't sure if the pipe bushings that came with the filter head had pipe sealer on them, after going to the trouble to screw them out, I then found out they did. No problem, just wanted to be sure.

Works for me!
Works for what I want to do with it. Was more economical then buying an expensive 12V pump, but quicker then buying a hand pump.
The hose was too short for my application. Only issue I had was the threads type on the 90 degree elbow, hose and nozzle that's included. The hose fittings on the supplied hose appeared to be 3/4" and 1", but had an o-ring to seal. A normal 3/4" pipe thread-ed fuel hose would not thread/seal when I tried (maybe user error). I didn't want any leaks trying to use the provided nozzle and elbow , so I replaced them with a fittings, hose and nozzle with standard 3/4" pipe thread . The thread on the pump outlet was standard 3/4" pipe thread, so a 90 degree pipe fitting worked there.
Even with purchasing the replacment hose, nozzle & fittings, the total cost was still under the cost of purchasing a higher priced electric pump (and some hand pumps).
