 At some point that 2nd filter was installed it was never a stock item . The 
fuel filter stock is between the tank outlet and the pump intake there is no 
fuel pressure on that filter it filters fuel before entering the pump . I'd 
remove the 2nd added filter because it does have pressure at least 28 PSI 
and you don't need it and it may even cause more harm than good.
