Thank you all, respondents. Meant to include in the original message that, due to some extreme inconveniences at anchor
in FLA, I've been using gasoline station diesel
, not marine diesel
. That is obviously for trucks and my Ford Lehman
engine, I'm told, is a marinized truck engine. What would they put into their diesel that would affect my racors, that wouldn't affect trucks? I do fear it is the fuel that's causing this. I've got about 110 gals of it and I was about to fill up completely before casting off for Martha's Vineyard
... a 1200 mile trip. Now I'm really in a quandry. Gonna call Parker (racor parent co.) to get informed. Don't want the same thing happening to new ones. Thanks again. Fair winds.
