GF626 should work- IIRC, it's rated for 5 micron. At the tank, you can use a 10 micron filter. You don't want to use a very fine filter at the low pressure end (the tank, where the fuel is drawn from because gas' viscosity is such that shear occurs. A good visual for this is a kitchen faucet- the screen in the faucet causes shear, which is how it aerates the water. It's a major case of vapor lock at low temperature and at high temperature, it's even worse.

My '96 uses a WIX 33481 screw on filter after the fuel pump and a WIX 33003 in-line with clamps on top of the tank.

WIX 51061 is the long oil filter (I thought I would add that while I was looking at my filter numbers).

Thanks all. I think this should not have to be marine specific and can pick this up at a local NAPA dealer? BTW this goes on a '98 5.7 Vortec

I got a Puralator F21111 for the tank and F33144 for the engine and yes I got them at Autozone. Unfortunately, I did not have time to replace them and run the boat, bc I had to get back to town, so I guess it will have to wait until next time. I will take apart the fuel pump and check that screen as well. I kind of wish I had run the boat with the old plugs before I changed everything just to see if they could have been the issue, but I would think that new plugs should run just fine.

I read your post, and what struck me as a possibility is that you said you set PP to 20mph. Did you disengage PP before trying WOT? That would be an easy fix and would mimic a fuel problem as PP tries to hold your speed back.

Valid question, but yes I did disengage PP before WOT. I wish it were that easy.

Try getting ahold of STX221... he had some LT-1 issues... and was able to solve them for cheap.

I exchanged one of the fuel filters tonight just after the fuel pump. I want to check the screen on the fuel pump, but wanted to know where to access the screen to see if I need to clean it. I also need to know if the system needs to be primed before starting after cleaning the fuel pump. Do I need to do anything past turning the key to let the pump come on a couple times? Thanks for the help.
