I just finished installing a new fuel pump in my 84 stocker - it had just been done previous to my purchasing the car, but whoever installed the new fuel pump did not use submergable lines...pretty amazing what happens to non submergeable lines when in the tank....

Any case, I hooked everything back up, and the line coming out of the fuel filter leaks. Is there supposed to be O-rings on both sides of the fuel filter or just on the exit side? Or at all?

Fuel filter uses 2 fuel proof O-rings. GM are orange colored. Many black ones won't last long.

Both sides require the o ring, its just the way they are made. if I am not mistaken and I have been before you can get GM o rings at the dealer still, just the o rings for under a buck or so. They will last longer, better material.
