    i read the answer in one of the threads ahwile back but I couldn't find it.

    if it matters it will indicate with an arrow (in the direction of fuel flow) if not, then it does not matter.

    RE: which way does a fuel filter go?

    I took mine out of the package, cut the fuel line and put it on, the o-ring just happened to be on the carb side. I was not saying the o-ring must be one way or the other. Sorry for the confusion. schmism is right, if there is an arrow the flow must go in that direction.

    RE: which way does a fuel filter go?

    Most filters work both ways but if you open it first and look inside, the brass mesh filter you need the fuel to flow over the outside of the mesh to make it easier to clean just incase you do get any crap in there
    Just my opinion

    Good Luck
