Fuel Water Seperator Hoses on 83 S&S
Can some one please tell me which hose goes to what side of the fuel water Seperator on a 1983 S&S? I forgot to mark them before I took them off!

If you are talking about the one and only fuel containment canister on your boat, I can elaborate (fuel filter) but a water separator in between the fuel cell and the carb is not something I am familiar.

Can you post a picture of the scenario?


I am pretty sure we are talking about the same canister. (The one the connects to the gas tank on the port side). There is one hose that goes from the tank to the canister and one that goes from the canister to the fuel pump. I just need to know which one goes on which side of the canister.

Went out to look at my filter setup and found a new barefoot suit on the door step... :D


Thank you! Just to make sure we are talking about the same canister...
