it's low season in bay area, CA, so it's time to get some engine maintenence done.
i wanted to replace both secondary and primary filters on my yanmar 1gm10 engine and since it's my first time, i wanted to make sure that i will not do any irreversible mistakes.
the information that i have so far was harvested from the owners manual and internet forums.
Your comments/suggestions/guidelines will be greatly appreciated
Filters to use:
1.Primary filter - i have Racor filter 245R. Should i use 30 Micron?
2.Secondary filter - should i use 10 micron filter on the secondary if 30 is used on the primary?
1. how to replace primary Racor filter? anyone has a manual?
2. how to replace secondary filter
? what wrench
should i buy to open the filter cover? i saw someone on the net use a screwdriver pounding on the side of the cover clockwise for it to open... but not sure if that's the best approach.
Does anyone knows a good online store to purchase all related parts/tools???
