Thread: fuel filter

  1. #1

    fuel filter

    I must be blind. Cant seem to find the fuel filter. I understand it's supposed to be in the bow under the storage, so basically same area as the fuel tank. But I'm missing it.

    Ok. That one I saw, and know it's the water separator. But I thought it had a separate inline filter. The service manual shows that and then next section shows a little thin inline style filter (the one I can't find).

    Supposedly looks like this. Name:  m66bZKJCFBOP_8vyOcZJAUw.jpg

    + one on oil filter. If you change that be sure to make sure there is no air in the line.

    Edit. To be clear I mean if you change it in the oil line not for use in fuel line

    The oil one I saw too. But the manual mentions a fuel filter that it says looks like the above. Weird.

    you need revision 342 of the manual. they often show wrong images and sometimes for fun, wiring diagrams aren't accurate either.

    that piddy little filter is oil injection, you'll blow your engine if you put that on a fuel line.
