PS - I have never found anything in it. Nothing, zilch, nada. I only occasionally find stuff in the upstream filter. A microscopic piece of fuzz, a pin head spec of something black, although just yesterday doing my CI, I found a very small goldish metallic spec, like super tiny can hardly see with the naked eye. I think it might have been from the fuel tank drain as I removed them to drain that tanks, or it could have been from the selector valve as I removed it for replacement. Who knows.
Anyway, nothing exciting....
