And the inline fuel filter that I added awhile back is a Napa Gold 3027. Very cheap, but has been working very well for 5 months now. If you look at the application for what it fits, you see a couple vermeers with a cummins diesel engine so it is good for a pressurized system.
I'm a bit concerned now. I am getting ready to replace my pump with the ca-cycleworks version. I went to Auto Zone and bought Fuel Injection rated fuel line and clamps, but now I am worried that I will have the same issue as you. Was the original line you bought not FI rated, or did you find some better FI rated line? Let me know, as I was going to do that work to mine tonight.
