Fram C1191A Filter Info Needed

I cannot google up any info regarding the filtration capability of this Fram fuel filter. There are 2 C1191A filters in series on my Lehman 120. I cannot find that the mfr publishes any micron value for this filter. Does anyone know?

Re: Fram C1191A Filter Info Needed

I know this an old post BUT:
I lost my HP injector pre-charge pump on the 6-cyl Westerbeke 115 HP. There was dirt in the pump that wrecked the HP boost vane pump. My manual calls for 1 micron but as you point out, the C1191A is 10 micron. I will either find a suitable replacement with greater protection or I will add a spin-on 1 micron cartridge between the lift pump and the HP pump. This will offer very little resistance since the cartridge is 6" diameter and 12 long = HUGE.
