I'm a new boat owner learning
the ropes with diesel
. I have a Perkins M20 on a 1995 Catalina
I've not replaced the fuel filters before. The primary filter after the tank is a Racor
. The second filter, a Perkins filter, is mounted upside down on the engine.
Here are the newbie questions:
How often do you replace/maintain each fuel filter
? Is it number of hours like the oil
? e.g. 100 hrs per oil change
What kind of mess can I expect maintaining these filters? Any tips on limiting fuel leak mess?
Does anyone have a reliable procedure to bleed the fuel line after filter replacement on the Perkins M20?
Your owners manual will have that information. If you plan on doing your own servicing and repairs
I suggest you invest in a shop manual for your engine.
