Re: Clogged fuel filter?

Thanks Tom, I'll try the finger pump again when I get a chance. I put in a 2 micron filter, but when this (and my backup) fail I'll get the 10. My Yanmar filter had no visible blockage, so I think the Racor is doing all of the work right now.

12 gallons was by memory, 14.5 is even worse from my point of view. 6 gallons would be ideal, but isn't worth doing the work to change to.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
