fuel filter blockage at top

Late last fall, my Massey Ferguson tractor with the Perkins 4107 would not run. I put in a new fuel element filter, to no avail. No fuel was reaching the injector pump.
Is it possible the top side of the filter assembly is blocked? I am getting fuel going to the inboard side of the filter assembly, but nothing coming out the other side. I have blown out all tubing to injector pump and all is OK.
Is it possible one of the passages on the metal assembly on top of the fuel filter assembly is somehow blocked? Is this even possible?

Re: fuel filter blockage at top

Are you referring to the 4107 filter on the block? Or a separate pre filter?
