Re: Identify Engine Part please

The one on the right is a GROCO sea strainer commonly used to strain the seawater cooling system of an engine immediately after the thruhull/seacock.
The one on the left is a RACOR 500 fuel filter, primarily used as the first filter in the fuel system between the tank and the secondary fuel filter installed on the engine.
Should you find you have no need of either, please PM me!

Those 2 things are my new upgrated setup for the WB40 Thinking about adding a new air filter and maybe a bigger alternator.

Not too many boats go off-roading or mudding, so I'd not put too much more than the original air filter if any.
Bigger alternators take more horsepower. Make sure you have enough before you spend the bucks.
