Racor fuel filter identification....

Sorry, I have no picture for this one, but maybe someone will recognise it.

My ship has a Volvo MD17C as the auxiliary.

The fuel filter is a Racor, with a curved, clear bowl and aluminium body above it. It dates from 1977 or before, I think. It is an early model fuel filter but I don't know which one. It does not have the wee T-piece thumbscrew sticking up out of the top of it. Instead, it has a stainless band strapped around the top of it with a big black tightening knob on it.

I was trying to identify it so that I could get some new filter elements for it.

Does anyone recognise the description?
