In the picture below...What is the part circled in red? (not a photo of my engine)


When I was bleeding my fuel lines i was not able to get fuel to flow passed this part (into the injector line) unless I loosened that circled part. I don't know why that was but once it was loosened I was able to get fuel to flow into the injector line and push out the trapped air.

Based on other bleeding procedures I have never heard this before and my manual doesn't outline it either.

Also on a side note...
Will Seafoam and anti-algae additives be filtered out by the fuel/water filter separator?

I actually stole the original picture from that Mark Corke Link above ;) I guess the part is nothing more than a thread adapter. I guess it confers from 1/2" threads on the engine block to flare threads for the injector tubing. I thought it might have been a check valve or something to keep fuel from flowing backwards and maybe it was stuck.

When I had bled the fuel system I started at the lift pump screw, then the injector pump screw, but that wasn't enough to get it fired. It wasn't until I cracked that thread convertor, that fuel would flow into the injector line.

On another note...
I started another thread about my fuel/water separator modification but I haven't gotten any comments gets. Could someone please tell me if this was a good idea or if I am asking for trouble...
