Raw water filter on engine

We have a Yanmar 4jh2-e engine. We're looking for the raw water filter.. Is there one? If so, where is it!

Thanks in advance!

Re: Raw water filter on engine

The raw water "filter" is generally referred to as a strainer. It should be located very close to the sea cock or shut off valve at the thru-hull where the water enters the boat. The strainer isn't a very fine filter. It keeps out leaves, fish, twigs and so forth. It doesn't keep out small things like a fuel filter does. Most raw water paths are not very small so small stuff just goes right through the system and out the exhaust discharge.

Here are some typical strainer types: GROCO STRAINERS

Some boats don't have a strainer so it's possible you don't have one.
