This one is from CIP1, their part #VWC-113-127-025-DO. It seems to be from the low-end "Classic Aircooled" line of JP Group (Jopex, Dansk, etc)
I have had only painful experiences with Jopex / Dansk, especially their hideous Type 4 heat exchangers and Type 1 mufflers with the welded heat riser pipes so you can't move the damn flanges to meet your specific engine's width. They have turned me off of all of Denmark.

Watch out for loosening brass nipples when you have to muscle the hose off. I would mandate that you cut the hose longitudinally and replace the hose every time. You do NOT want to loosen the brass nipples.

Hastings, Wix, NAPA Gold, and Whatever Bus Depot Sends You fuel filters made in Jordan or Turkey.

These are not the Made In Israel filters. These are especially cheesy and have shrinking internal foam that breaks off once the filter starts rattling around inside the case. The danger is that a piece will lodge in your expensive fuel pump.

Test your filter by removing it and shaking it. If it rattles, it is done.

The "Made in Jordan" filter I just removed off my bus had the death rattle after less than three years and 2,000 miles.
