Re: did someone pee in my racor?
Hello theDude put the valve plug back in with a new gasket washer on top of the knurled end. tighten hand tight. to fill Racor back up break free t-handle at top unwind a couple of turns and lift lid gently (if it won't move rap it a little with a screw driver handle while pulling up. it should break free) unwind t rest of way, replace filter pour, fuel into filter to just about the top and check seal on t and o-ring on cover, replace, close up again and start her up. Check for leaks fuel out, air in. if all is good your set to go Good sailing and good luck with your new to you boat.
note: the next time you want to check drain the filter, just crack the valve at the bottom, and drain a little with a plastic cup or pint water bottle under valve. It should come out under pressure, so no worries of spraying all over.
Do not do any of this if the engine is running because you'll introduce air into the system!!!!!!!
