Usually, this type of valve has a built-in filter screen.
The screen is only visible from inside of the tank
with the valve installled. The screen may not be
visible if the tank is full of fuel.
In this picture, the valve is oriented as if in the bottom of the tank.
The problem with this type of valve is that the screen while it does a good job of filtering junk prior to fuel entering the fuel line, it keeps the junk inside of the fuel tank. In time the junk will clogg the screen, building up inside the tank choking off the screen and causing a lot of work cleaning out the tank. Hopefully when this happens, the tank is not full of fuel.
Another similar design is the in tank fitting with strainer. This fitting does not incorporate a valve, but it still has the screen built in.
Neither of these are good designs and do not provide easy fuel system maintenance.
An external inline fuel filter
(part number OR-07-064)
is much easier to replace and easy to gain access,
provided it is installed with an inline fuel valve.
(part number OR-07-406)
If you are going to use the valve shown above
is should be installed between the filter and tank
so you can shut off the valve to replace the filter.
It is easy to modify your fuel line.
Simply remove the bottom tank valve and install a new tank bushing and tank fitting to allow you to connect the fuel line.
The new bottom tank fitting is available in either a straight fitting OR a 90 degree elbo fitting.
