Racor for 1-cyl 7hp BMW Diesel

Well, the title says it all pretty much: I would like to replace the OEM (proprietary) fuel/water separator on my engine with a readily available alternative. I'm leaning towards a Racor, but am open to other suggestions. Any one have a sizing suggestion for this size of engine? A part number? The best place to buy a kit?

Re: Racor for 1-cyl 7hp BMW Diesel

The filters are sized mostly on the fuel flow that must be handled. With such a small engine, I would just go with a small Racor like this. Note there are three elements for the unit: 2, 10 and 30 micron. If this is the only filter in the system, I would avoid the 2 micron size as it could plug very quickly. Fine as the second filter though.
