I have a 1983 Irwin Citation 31 ft. Yanmar 2GM.
I was trying to clean the water separator and I dropped it ... in 40 ft of water.
Where can I get a similar product for a reasonable price?
I saw online a Volvo Penta for $239. I am hoping to get something cheaper.

Thanks a lot

I will probably go with a Racor with a see-through bottom.
A couple of issues have been touched here:
- water separator in lowest point of fuel supply. Mine was in the highest point, and still had 400 cc of water in. I purchased the boat 3 months ago and did not check it prior thoroughly.
- a diver is not an option since the bottom has 3-4 ft of silt ...

I ordered today the filter 301050 from Defender (best price around).

One more question: my engine stopped - that's how I realized I had too much water in the separator. Should I just install the new separator and start the engine, or do I need to "bleed" it ? Obviously, diesel engines are not my strength.

Thanks again
