More problems..leaking fuel from heating element on top of filter housing...replaced o rings but fuel leaking through the middle of plastic..just ordered new one..set back $180...still seems to be sucking air..could it be in crossover for the dual tanks?

there is no crossover for the tanks. get all your leaks fixed first. any leak, feed or return side, will cause air intrusion and running issues.
