should be right in front when you open the cover...squeez the clamps, move them away from filter, insert the new one and replace the clamps...just check to make sure there is no direction on the filter, if there is point the arrow toward the carb...

JUST SAY NO TO C**K SNAPPING

I would maybe change the first inline filter, I cant imagine the second getting plugged up. Simple little screw on filter on the carb. Rv store wants alot for them.

2nd place is the first loser!!

Were a whole lot faster than you think you are.

goodguys75- too quick to answer without checking the model. That is why I spelled it out. Filter is not there and nothing like you described.

Later posts are right on! Thanks guys, I didn't see the second filter. Our local autoZone didn't carry the parts.

Please be more careful before giving technical instructions if you are not positive.

Each time a description of the change, there are always lots of talk about it anywhere. These are not exempt. A statement usually find is the following: "I have to change versions almost immediately, so I do not get up to date I'll keep waiting target ..

New filter will improve performance and will help to keep your generator free of debris.
Firstly remove the fuel line from fuel tank to the injectors
Attach new fuel line back to the generator, cut the fuel line in a spot where line is not close.
Attach line coming from fuel injector to the side where arrow is pointing. check that you have one of hose lamps on the line.
Connect the end of the line running out of the tank to the other end of fuel filter. check wheather the fuel line is snug on the filter.
To check leak, start the generator.

Fuel Filter Change

Hi, I am new to all this but here goes. My husband and I have the Onan 5500 Marquis Gold on our RV. We know little about generators and no one told us not to let gas sit in there for a long time. We have cleaned the carburetor and are trying now to clean up the rest of the fuel system before we try to start it We have drained the gas and are ready to change the fuel filter. I have read the other posts. Any further tips? We are retired, can't afford to take it to a dealer. Appreciate the help. --lemondrop in Fort Worth
