Picked up the filter replacement cartridge, it came with the 2 "O" rings.
Changing it was so easy even I could do it.
Filled the canister back up with diesel and it started right up, ran for a while with no problem.
Perhaps the filter was partially clogged which caused the seal on the top "O" ring to break, I will continue to watch it.
Thanks for all the advise,

Thanks for the reply,
I guess what I meant to ask was do I have to bleed the air out of the fuel system at the secondary filter and injectors if I add diesel to the primary filter

|CaptainForce||You don't necessarily need to "bleed" or "drain" fuel from the bottom unless there is a layer of sediment, water, or darker discolored fuel at the base.|

I don't believe it has a bleed bolt on top, but I will check. It does have a cleanout bolt on the bottom.
If I take it apart and add diesel fuel to fill it, do I have to bleed the system?

|MitchM||none of my racors ever showed air at the top. after changing a filter i'd fill the racor body with clean diesel fuel from a top - up bottle of fuel. does yours have the cleanout bolt on the bottom, and a bleed bolt on top ? loosening the bleed bolt should allow a gravity fill of fuel into the bowl of the racor. when the bowl is full of fuel, tighten the bleed bolt...|

|CaptainForce||Although my Racors are 500 series I'm confident that any of the Racors would not be designed to function with air inside the filter. I would suggest that you open the top of the filter-separator and top it off with diesel, inspect the O-ring and moisten it with a finger swipe of diesel and refit the top. There actually may be another O-ring seal at the threaded center post for you to inspect. Often these O-rings can be replaced as they are present within the packaging of the replacement filters. Once again, I'm speaking with my familiarity with the 500 series, but I assume it's similar. Take care and joy, Aythya crew|

I have a Racor EX200FG as a primary filter on my Universal 5411.
When I look at the glass bowl it is only about 1/2 full, with air on the top half. Is this normal?, as you probably can tell I am new to a diesel.
Also does anyone know where I can get a manual or service instructions for the Racor. I have tried a Google search with no luck..
