Default Nicktane fuel filter installation

All-
I've looked around a bit, as I seem to have seen it before, but can't run across an install of a Nicktane Fuel Uber-Filter. I'm sure it's pretty straight-forward, but I was hoping to see another members install pictures to get a leg up.

Thanks!

Ish

Ish, forgive me if you've seen it but the pics on his page for the filter kit show some good install pics. It does look straight-forward, just unbolt the old bracket, bolt on the new one, attach filter to head, install filter onto bracket, position nipples, connect hoses, prime.

it is stoopid easy. No harder than replacing the OEM filter.

The two worm clamps are kinda difficult to get at with the HUGE filter in place... That's about the hardest part of the install.

Default Nicktane...

installed it last evening. One question I have for those who already have theirs installed successfully, what torque is required on the bolts through the Banjo fittings, I tightened them down pretty snug, but seem to have a little leak, and it's not coming from the hose clamps.
Thanks!

Ish

Mine didn't leak & I didn't use a torque wrench. If it's leaking a wee bit I'd say just snug it down another 1/4 turn or so.
