    I was just out to Walmart and they have just got in the fuel water filter units. Cartridge type with the mount and filter for $28.00 complete. Also had the replacement filters for I Think $6.00.... Mounting was black and so was the filter cartridge. It was heavy built built.

    When I bought my water filter kit at Academy I took one of the two brass plugs, that came with the filter kit, to Ace Hardware, and found two brass nipple fitting that matched the threads on the plugs. No problem at all. (I believe they were 3/8" fittings)

    I may be very wrong, but the three different filter kits I saw at Wal-Mart, Bass Pro, and Academy looked like they were made by the same company in China! Same mounting holes and fuel line fitting attachment ports.

    Good luck,

    Bill

    It was probably manufactured by the same company... how was the price comparisons?

    Wal Mart was the highest at $24.99. Bass Pro was $21.99 and Academy was $19.99.

    I bought the $19.99 one at Academy because it was cheaper and the store was only about one and a half miles from my house.

    Academy did have another model that was made by another company(?) that included the two nipple fittings, and if I remember correctly it cost a bit more....$24 to $29.

    Bubbakat recommended this type filter kit, and I'm very happy that I bought mine.:big_smile:

    If you need a make and model number I'll try and find it for you.
