Though I won't get to it until April I think the seal replacement doesn't require removing the engine or dropping the pan.

OK thanks -- helpful on both counts.

What is the wix part number that is a direct replacement for the 40154 filter for the Westerbeke 82B?

Re: Westerbeke 82B - 1200hrs

long time mechanic here... Wix makes decent filters....

Pressure buildup may be some type of restriction "before" the oil galley section where the sender is mounted... Some filter mounts have a check valve in them to reduce the flow of oil out when changing the filter.... possibility no?

Re: Westerbeke 82B - 1200hrs

I haven't used a Wix replacement filter but their website indicates WO1AG152 is the replacement for Westerbeke 40154 but cautions, check the vehicle's manual for correct replacement. I was able to secure a supply of Westerbeke labeled filters from an online supplier.

Followup to my Sierra filter problem last fall: They refunded the cost of 2 filters and oil but claimed to find no problem with my returned filters. They then asked if I would send my photos of the Westerbeke and Sierra in a side by side comparison showing a difference in the o-ring dimensions. I haven't received any further responses. In the meantime, I'll use OEM filters, particularly since they're the same price.

Perhaps tflexinc.com who supplies Sierra products would like to comment for the benefit of readers of this forum.

That WIX part no. suggests it's for a hydraulic filter. Not sure it would also be used for motor oil.

It's a bummer that the Westerbeke branded filters need to be $30-plus. One vendor suggested it was because the 82B has been discontinued & perhaps wasn't mfg. in large quantities.

Have you addressed your leaky main seal yet?

Re: Westerbeke 82B - 1200hrs

Exile,

I had the yard replace the front seal during the winter. Not a big deal, just removed the pulleys. Started it up yesterday, no leak so far.

Good to know this isn't as painful a fix as I first imagined -- thanks.
