Re: raycor see thru water seperator

The bowl is where heavier particles and water separate out by centrifugal force/gravity then goes through the filter (real raycor filters repel water). Could be seeing suspended particles in the bowl.

When was the last time you cleaned out the bowl and changed the filter? Would start there, then refill w/clean fuel and run the motor. If gets dark again, may be time to clean the fuel tanks.
