I have a Carter M2090 style fuel pump that has the glass bowl attached. Is there supposed to be a filter element that goes in there? If not, whats the purpose of the bowl? Sediment or something? I have searched and searched and have not seen one picture with an element inside the bowl.

years ago some had a stone like material inside but for probably last twenty or so more years they are just to collect water and sediment. the one on my m37 has been working just fine for all these years without anything inside

We own and have owned dozens of antique tractors from the late 30's to 40's everyone of them has the glass bowl fuel filter/separators. Always just a mesh screen and a rubber gasket. Some have had a cork gasket, once you open them up they tend to need a new gasket as they never reseal without leaking. Visit any tractor supply store and you can find parts or replacement units for them.
