    Water separator and priming pump.

    Not sure how it compares to others.

    Priming pump is used to get fuel through the pump if you have run it dry or had to strip it for some reason.

    You can get a universal filter and housing from Midas or any of those which incorporates all three functions. Filter, water seperator (with electrical feedback to a warning lamp on your dash) and priming pump. If space is the problem, that might be the answer.

    No idea, but find out what the standard filter's GUD part number is, and phone GUD.
