Got all my filters and impellers changed on all three engines. With the exception of the 1? 2? fuel filters on my Westerbeke 8kw. See pics below. I know #1 is the fuel filter and I believe #2 is the fuel lift. Parts diagram shows a filter in the lift. Is it changed at the same rate or with the small fuel filter? Last, do I have to shut off the fuel flow in order to change the filters? I don't see any means to do that other than flipping the valve on the manifold letting fuel go to the generator. Does the fuel flow stop at some point or just keep on coming?

Thanks for any help!
