what is the width of the Whale strainer?

Larry, I would talk to someone at JD to make sure you are getting the right part. What I received is nothing like the picture. I never got around to returning it.
The dimensions of the strainer are 2 and 3/16 inches by 5 and 3/4 inches. The 5 3/4" includes the two tabs for bolts or screws. The width of the body without those tabs is 5 inches.
Metal, plastic or ?
This is made out of plastic, thanks.
Bigger than expected
I wanted a strainer to use with a remote pump that would minimize residual water in the bilge. Therefore unless the pump has significant sucking power, there will still be some water left. On the other hand, perhaps I am asking too much, but I may yet modify the strainer to reduce the level of residual water. However, I really like the fact that the strainer comes with a built-in check valve, and the unit allows me to remove it from the bilge and clean it with less time and effort than a submersible bilge pump.
