I installed this as a replacement on an experimental light sport plane. The quality of the gascolator and screen is great. The only down side I experienced is that there are no provisions for mounting the unit, so it must be supported by the fuel lines.
I second previous comments and add that P/N 05-00907 brilliantly solves the problem of the lack of a mounting bracket.
