Racor 500-Like Filter and Valves for Dual Filter Setup

I purchased this filter (water separator) from Filtrationdepot.com to set-up a dual filter for my boat. Unfortunately, I thought I had enough room for this, but after trying to move the Groco strainer, Racor filter and everything else, I realized there was no room for two filters.

I have for sale this Racor 500 type filter housing, two bronze three-way valves, hose barbs (seven 5/16" and one 1/4") and the 3/8" fittings from fittingsfromRacor.com to make this work. They have all been put together with Permatex.

Priced at $150 plus shipping.

Re: Racor 500-Like Filter and Valves for Dual Filter Setup

I still have it, but I think I'm going to keep it. I had a fuel issue last week that could have been bad closer to shore. I'm going to remote mount this second filter and make it work on this boat.

If I cannot figure out how to make it fit, I'll shoot you an email

Thank,

Matt
