I'm trying to change out my fuel filters on my 003 with Napa filters. The wiki page list a Napa 3113 fuel filter but when comparing it with the military filter, it's a good 1/4" shorter. Will this work?

It took me awhile to search & locate this thread but I wanted to add a few details that will reinforce m16ty's concerns about the NAPA 3113 filter dimensions. I got an MEP-002A in a few days ago and started doing the standard fuel system maintenance and installed two new NAPA 3113 filters (have two cases of these I need to use up). The unit had Torite #8085s installed but they were in pretty bad shape and the fuel tank had 2" of sludge in it. Right after I installed the filters I had a recollection of this thread so I decided to remove the two NAPA 3113s and do some measuring. (First thing I noticed is that no impression was seen in the lower or upper cork gaskets.)After close inspection, a NAPA 3113 will not seal properly without also adding some sort of spacer. I'm going to edit the wiki page to say as such.
