Re: CS36T Fuel filter Westerbeke 44B

.. and obviously if the installer had swapped them, without a pickup tube the engine wouldn't run very long...

Is the tank really full? Maybe there's a short 'stub' tube to cleanly drop the returning fuel, but the tank's full enough that it's acting as a pickup? Esp full, the elevations would seem to support easy syphoning..
