The white stuff is probably glue holding the tag in place. It looks like silicone adhesive.

Do you have a CIS fuel pressure tester? I sold mine to someone here a while back, but it was super useful for troubleshooting my VWs. IIRC, whoever I sold it to was working on a Mercedes.

Also, I've got a dwell meter, not sure if it's worth trying to ship it from the USA, but you're welcome to it.

That brass-looking fitting is supposed to stay with the filter. That's why there's a flare fitting leading to it. You'd have to spin the filter (like you did) instead of just tightening the flare nut. You need to get the fitting out of the flare if at all possible. Penetrating oil isn't going to hurt the fuel line or the car. It's such low-volume and the car will just burn it.

And yes, fuel lines love to spray fuel. Wrap the tool in a rag next time. Gas tastes bad and burns the eyes.
