    so I was splitting some wood and noticed that there was hydraulic fluid leaking from the suction line. Upon closer inspection, the filter/hose clearance is non-existent and the filter wore a hole through the line. I purchased some replaced line, but now the filter rubs even more.

    I’m afraid if I extend the filter out for clearance, it will be more exposed. Can’t more the filter or the pump vertically that I can see. Filter is as tight as possible.

    Maybe a 45 pointing down from the tank before entering the hose?

    Any thoughts on how to proceed? I really don’t want to spend much additional money if possible.

    Pics- old line with hole at fitting going to pump. Either rubbed a hole on the filter or on the fitting due to the angle.

    Pics of new line and cleanse issue. Filter is sitting right on the line. Additional picture for the fittings used.

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Yep. Most splitter ive seen are that way. The filter holds the dirt in the pleats of the cartrige, not in the bottom.

    Great! Thanks. That was easy. Just had to adjust the 90 degree inlet fitting because it hit the other pressure line when a rotated the filter.
