Racor Gasoline Spin On Fuel Filter/Water Separator Customer Questions and Answers

Question

Do I need an inline vent between the water separator and the outboard? I think my current setup is causing my engine to flood.

Asked on 06/14/2012 by Jeff McKee

Top Answer

There is no vent as part of the Racor filter, so I am not sure of your fuel line configuration. If you tell me or draw the fuel line diagram, I can tell you if you need a vent. Usually, however, you don,t.

Answer

I don't think so. My fuel system is plumbed as follows. Fuel line from vented tank to racor fuel filter intake. From the racor, my fuel line runs under my deck to the primer bulb which is mounted vertically. From the primer bulb tthe fuel goes into my outboards engine mounted fuel filter. The only thing that should be vented in your fuel system is the tank so that you don't create negative pressure (a vacuum) in the tank as your engine consumes fuel. I have never heard of an inline vent in a fuel system for an outboard. You don't want air in the system at any point.

Answer

No i do not believe so, they recommend to use a check valve if the filter it higher than the fuel tank so that it doesnt drain back to the tank. I also recommend putting a shutoff valve before the filter also so that if you place the filter lower than the tank that you can shut it off from flowing that way also. And just incase you need to shut the fuel off. This filter should not make it run richer. The system will flow the same as it did before. The filter is just gonna let the water settle down to the bottom. Are you sure that it wasnt running rich to begin with. I would take it to a small engine place and see if it is jetted correctly if you do not know how.

Answer

There should not be a vent in the fuel line. Too much risk of a leak if it malfunctioned. If your engine is carburated it may be bad floats.

Question

Is this unit suitable for a suzuki DF115 motor in a saltwater application? Is the metal stainless or aluminum? Thanks. Mark

Asked on 01/23/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

The filter is suitable for the DF115 as it is a 10 micron filter that is capable of flow rates up to 60 gph. I doubt that a DF115 would ever exceed 15 gph at wide open throttle, maybe 20, but nothing approaching 60. The metal bracket is die cast aluminum.

Answer

I have two of these units on different boats in saltwater and neither has corroded. I 'm pretty sure that they are aluminum but the coating Racor uses on them is very durable. Just make sure you get a unit with at least the minimum gallon per hour rating required for your engine. My 115 etec uses the 90 gph.

Answered on 01/30/2012 by CHRISTOPHER SMITH

Answer

The bracket is painted aluminum. I boat mostly in freshwater so I can't say how it will hold up to salt. The manufacturer should be able to tell you what size filter is appropriate for a 115.

Answered on 01/23/2012 by JOHN KITTREDGE

Answer

Mark I run the one I bought in a DT85, but freshwater application. The main housing is aluminum, so I am not sure about holding up to saltwater conditions unless it is in a dry place.

Question

does the glass bowl ever fill up with good fuel?

Asked on 11/18/2011 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Yes, the bowl acts as the bottom portion of the filter and is designed to hold fuel unless the filter encounters water which is heavier than fuel and will settle to the bottom where it can be seen and safely drained away.

Answered on 12/31/2011 by CHRISTOPHER SMITH

Answer

Yes the bowl would theoritically be filled at all times with good fuel. It will trap water in the bowl if it is present. Since water sinks in gasoline, the good fuel passes through the bowl and out the filter.

Answered on 11/23/2011 by RORY RICH

Answer

The bowl is plastic, not glass, and yes it fills with good fuel. The idea is that, since water is heavier than gasoline, it settles to the bottom of the bowl where you can see it and use the drain valve to remove it.

Question

I have a 20 foot Boston Whaler center console want to move the raycor filter up to the center counsel from the stern will it work up there on my 200 horsepower Mercury carbureted engine moving it forward

Asked on 10/25/2018 by Bruce from Washington

Top Answer

I don't see why it wouldn't work but I can think of several reasons not to do it. 1) unless your fuel tank is forward of your console you will be significantly lengthening the fuel lines. I like to empty the filter, bowl, and fuel line back to the tank at the end of the season and I wouldn't want to be spilling fuel around the center console to do it. 2) In the rare event of a fire emergency, I wouldn't want to be sitting right beside a half pint or more of gasoline. 3) extra fuel line means extra chances for it to get kinked, crushed, or whatever the North Atlantic is going to try on me next. On my 18 foot Lund, the filter is mounted high on the left side of the transom…a bit awkward when trying to purge it, but any spilled gas drains right out the hole next to it. Best…D

HOW TO DRAIN FILTER?

Asked on 09/04/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Very easy. A screw operated valve is built into the clear bowl below the filter. You loosen this screw and the contents of the bowl drain out. Tighten the valve back up when you're done.
