Racor Gasoline Spin On Fuel Filter/Water Separator
Racor Spin On fuel and water separators feature see-thru contaminant collection bowls with drain valve for outboards and metal bowls for inboard powered boats. Cleaner fuel meets stricter air quality standards including 33 CFR and USCG standards, and means your boat's engine runs stronger and more efficiently.

See-Thru bowls can only be mounted below deck with Outboard Applications. If See-thru bowl is used with an I/O or inboard, the filter must be mounted above deck for USCG approval. Metal bowls can be used for inboard or outboard applications above or below decks.
Racor fuel separators can handle up to 120 gallons per hour. Choose from models 120, 320, and 660 and refer to chart below to determine appropriate application for your inboard or outboard motor
Racor filter/separators will not separate oil from gasoline in blended fuel mixtures
Includes: Fuel Filter/Water Separator with mounting head, Spin-On Element and See-thru Blue, or metal Bowl
What model filter/head do I install for a chevy 327 inboard engine?
You could use this filter just select the one that will provide the appropriate gallons per hour.

is this raycor large enough to be installed in front of a yamaha factory canister filter on a 300 H,P, four stroke?
Actually, I can't answer the question. I would suggest discussing the filter specs with Yamaha or get Yamaha's specs and compare the two.
I need a replacement filter bowl for a racor model # 120rrac02 can you help me?
If you look on west marine web , or port supply part# 19340478 only way they sell them as complete
HOW TO DRAIN FILTER?
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.
What size is best for a yamaha 150 4 stroke?Thanks, Dave Rogers
THE RACOR WITH A 12T FILTER AND SEDIMENT BOWL HAS MORE THAN ENOUGH FILTERING AND SEPARATION CAPACITY FOR A 150 HP ENGINE. LASTS A SEASON OF ABOUT 150 HRS BEFORWE NEEDING CHANGE.

Which size is adequate for a Honda 60hp?
the s3240 seems to be the right size. i'm using it with a 90 hp merc.
Do I need an inline vent between the water separator and the outboard? I think my current setup is causing my engine to flood.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Is this unit suitable for a suzuki DF115 motor in a saltwater application? Is the metal stainless or aluminum?Thanks.Mark
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.
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.
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.
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.
does the glass bowl ever fill up with good fuel?
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.
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.
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.
Will this work on a standard omc/johnson or evinrude bracket that I have had on there for years?
Please contact customer service at 800-423-0030 to discuss.
not suitable as suction side filter
Unit comes with a 10 micron filter and is not suitible for use as a suction side filter with electric fuel pumps and carburated systems. This application requires an 80 to 100 micron screen. Use of a 10 micron filter causes cavitation in the pump leading to premature failure of the pump.
A must for a healthy engine
Easy install, you'll need large washers for the mounting screws or bolts. While expensive, the visual bowl allows for frequent fuel checks. One incident of ethanol fuel separation will pay for this filter 20X or more. I've been there.
a great product for the fuel today
you do not have to be a mechanical genious to install this device. with the ethanol fuel today it helps to keep water out of outboard motor.
