d. Element Configurations. Filter elements are made from ceramic,
treated paper, sintered bronze, or metal screen. There is one filter
element that differs from all others. It consists of a pile of laminated
disks spaced 0.0003 inches apart. As the gasoline passes between the disks,
foreign matter is blocked out.
a. Purpose. The fuel pump delivers gasoline from the fuel tank to the
engine. Early automotive equipment used gravity to feed gasoline to the
engine. This is no longer practical because it limits the location of the
fuel tank to positions that are above the engine.
