Sudden idle issues after replacing fuel filter

Put in a new fuel filter, no issues on last two drives, yesterday (very hot day) did a short run and car stalled out, had to feather throttle to keep idle up. Possible very small air leak? No fuel is leaking that I can see.

Vapor Lock? You mean the fuel filters in the carburetors, correct? Did you change one or both? If it's an in-line filter, are you 100% that you have it in the correct direction? They usually have an arrow pointing the direction of flow. Finally, if none of those, a defective filter. They are cheap, try another.

Plastic or metal fuel filter? Any chance its cracked / leaking after install?
