installing a fuel filter/separator

I'm installing a fuel filter/separator in line on my 1 cylinder Yanmar. (30 year old motor in an equally old 27' boat in Japan.) Can I install the filter such that the intake and output are above the level of the fuel tank. Will a booster pump be necessary?

Appreciate any help...

If you have a problem bleeding the separator [and I think you will] add a squeeze pump from a remote outboard tank to the line between the tank and separator.
