Does your car have Spica or carbs? That is a spica filter

If you put that inthe front canister I'm pretty sure that is the wrong filter, just because of the price, spring is smaller too.

The filter Jon listed is the correct filter to fit the "glass bowl" type carbureted fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator assembly used on 101/105 cars up to 1967 in the USA as well as later Euro cars with carbs.

I don't think it would be possible to fit this filter into the filter housing on a 1974 Spider with fuel injection. The filter for that application is much, much larger, and has an open center where the large bolt passes through and holds the bottom of the filter canister to the top of the assembly.

If you are replacing the front filter might as well replace the back one too if you have not already. That is the one that will clog first and cause the fuel pressure light to come on(if you have spica), first at high speeds, then slower speeds, then all the time, and before you know it you will be stuck beside the road.

The correct main filter for your 74 Spider on the Centerline site is FF266.

The FF206 filter is for carbed cars.

The Wix number is 33299 for the rear filter and you can probably get it locally. I always keep one in the glove box.

Is the front fuel filter available at a local auto supply store? If so, does anyone know the model/part number?

Hi there, I have napa 3299 for the rear spica fuel filter and Baldwin bf825 for the front fuel filter on late cars with no pressure relief valve and pf866 with early cars with pressure relief valve.
The bf825 has a gazillion cross references. Oddly the pf866 has none.

For reference the 3299 has a micron rating of 10, the pf866 is 45 and the bf825 is 4.

thanks @vintagemilano! I have a '74 GTV 2000, spica, stock as far as I can tell. I don't know whether I have a pressure relief valve or not.
