Re: Yanmar 3gm30f secondary filter next problem
Not sure which post to use as you have two posts going regarding this filtre.
None the less; The canister is not going to just fall off, it will need some coaxing.
Be aware that it will be full of fuel.
You may also want to put some heat into your engine prior to doing this. It will make starting it later, easier.
The filtre is held in place by the compression of the canister's collar. It is sealed off by a rubber o-ring inside.
The canister is made from cast aluminum and that's why you should use a soft hammer.
There is also an o-ring for the top of the canister that should be replaced.
It is also a good idea to fill the canister with fuel to help facilitate restarting.
Do not over tighten it, it is only aluminum.
We have three rules;
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
