Very well made, arrived quickly,
Just what I was looking for. Thanks A/C Spruce
Cured my fuel tank problems on farm tractor. Cut the original plastic fitting off the tank, drilled hole slightly under 3/8, used the strainer to cut new threads in plastic. Cured my fuel flow problems 100%
Great product. Used in my dump truck saddle tank for diesel. High quality strainer for all equipment that use a pipe thread fitting. Great price!.
Haven’t installed yet, but appears to be well made. Aircraft Spruce shipped quickly at reasonable shipping expense.
