Not sure if I missed it somewhere in here, but just wanted to share a tip I learned today while changing my fuel filter. I always had the hardest time getting the o-ring to stay in place while installing it, especially with AC delco and Recor filters, if i stretch out the rubber o-ring before installing the filter, being careful not to break it, the o-ring stays in place a hell of a lot better!

I keep a lil grease in my truck kit with the extra filter so I can get the darn o-ring to stay in place.

If they'd STOP foldin' the 'O'ring pack and stuffin' it in the filter, then it wouldn't have the memory laden bend that continually wants to flex up. :cookoo[1]:
I set it out in the sun for a while before I start. Aggravating BS!
