Re: Racor Diesel fuel filter 500MA2

Thanks a lot Maine Sail,
I am installing a new motor and working out the electrical and plumbing logistics of what I need, the 2 micron filter seemed like it would be prone to clogging and putting a 10 micron after a 2 just didn't make any sense.

Are the cheaper spin off Racor fuel filters any good? I heard they have problems out of the box because they won't unscrew and I don't think they meet AYBE? specifications.

Now I need to add 'Clean fuel tank and install inspection cover' to my do list.

Experience teaches us things we would rather not know.
