Re: CS36T Fuel filter Westerbeke 44B

#1 If the return has a tank pick up install an inline shut off valve. They did not ship from the factory with a return pick up.. Is it possible the tank is just really full?

#2 Get yourself a pair of hose pinch off pliers and clamp the return line when changing the filter.. EVERY boat should have a pair of hose pinch pliers..... Harbor Freight has a low budget pair for about $10.00...

#3 Lucky for you that you have a Mitsubishi/Westerbeke because bleeding is electric and fully automatic. I just jump the fuel pump pos out to the solenoid pos until it is bled. This prevents burning out the glow plugs when bleeding with the factory wiring.
