forgive me for not having given the exam after my ka lunk experience so you could learn that.....
and now i have not just one but 2 RACORS 500 series, so i can rule
the world. i wanted 300s, as those are perfect for the flow rate for my engine, but they are not available,,, even at marine
swapmeets out in cruiseland, so i had to make do with the larger 500s.
more leak potential but worth it, as i refuse to allow water
into this yes it is new engine. all parts
are new except only 4. makes it new. fewer than 50 hours on it, makes it new.
however each racor 500 holdls around an extra pint to liter of fuel
, so one adds it first to filter then pumps thru to prime.
i have watched so many allegedly intelligent males try to prime empty liter sized filters by hand.
hay guys, that dont work. electric assist does. is easier to fill a pint sized filteration cannister using a bottle of fuel then electrically pump the air out . there are many feet of fuel line to clear--why not use a method that is simple, and easy to replace when fail happens. in 3000 miles of use with this boat, i have had to change out the electric pump
i bought at napa and or autozone one time. i buy spares so fail is irrelevant. if boat battery
is that low as to make or cause fail of elect assist pump, you are going no where anyway, so is moot.
