    Was gonna change the fuel filters on all my handhelds while I had a little downtime. Went to the dealer today to pickup all the parts. Found out the 550 has 2 fuel filters? How do you go about getting them both out of the tank to change them out? I know on my others just use a wire with a hook on the end.

    Remove the 2 screws on the bottom of the tank. Pull tank out to access lines. PUSH lines off the tank fitting. Pop fitting out of tank.
