RE: New fuel filter question and TB o ring question...
the fuel filter is always wet, there is always fuel left inside and when you take it off it splashies out.
ins cluster you do not need to take the wheel off, just remove the cover over the stering column, top one. the unscrew two screws that hold cluster, then pull it out, put you hand in and disconect cluster. and wigle out the cluster. done.
when you put new O ring put some oilsish smoichish stuff on it, or just oil it so it be smoth. a small tip. :-)
