The Goldenrod filter is a one way filter and is clearly marked on the cap with an inlet and an outlet port and must be installed as marked to be effective.

answer 2
not recommended that would defeat the water and sentiment viewing in the bottom of the bowl to know when you have a problem with the fuel and when to change to filter or drain the bowl

Question

When connecting this to a fuel pump and delivery system, are there special finish couplings or elbows necessary?

Do I need fancy hardware to connect this to a fuel transfer and delivery system or can I just use regular 3/4" couplings and elbows? Do I have to tape the ends of the couplings to prevent leaks or is it a metal to metal connection?
Thanks

Standard 3/4" coupling will work to connect the filter. It is suggested that you use tape on the ends to prevent leakage.
