Re: did someone pee in my racor?

Make sure you seal the racor properly when you put it back together - you need the fuel system to be completely airtight.

I believe the clear bowl on the racor allows you to see water (it will separate from diesel and appear distinct in colour). This sinks in diesel so you can bleed it out with the drain at the bottom. I say I believe as in four years of running a boat with a racor I never actually had to do this...
