I don't think you'll get the filter off without draining the bottom part - unless you've being taking lessons from Uri Geller!

Sounds like the seaparator has being doing it's job... now you just need to do yours, i.e. drain the water it's collected

Well boat getting a going over before the cruise and it's gonna have lots of sea time in a very short time, so just gives me a reason to sort out the little niggles that I haven't bothered to sort

Ok well changed my fuel filter over, and it's a nice greeny colour now

When I was buying the new filter the boss was around of the machanics who did the recent work on my engine. He turn around and said you should have told us we would have had a look at it. We'll look at it tomorrow for you

Remind me to go see the boss always

He also said that the 'sneezing' was most likely due to it running lean?? is there any grounding in that? Seeing as it would be a simple cure?

Yeh, page 1, post 7.

--------------------------------------------
And Jiz posted this: I had this problem on my engine. I renewed the fuel and filters but that made no difference. I referred to the manual which stated the pilot screw base settings on the carbs and set them as specified. Problem cured, seems to start more easily and rev more cleanly aswell.

Heres another stupid question

Ok guys why we are on the subject of fuel problems why do manufacturers put stainless steel fuel tanks in Ribs ?

We all know that stainless steel sweats and esspecially so in this weather we've been having and this effect introduces water into our petrol.

Resent research by myself has shown you can buy up to 60 litre plastic fuel tanks to fit into ribs, these can be linked up the same as twin stainless tanks.

Although there may not be much weight difference between plastic and stainless there certainly is a large price difference between the two.

And you dont get any of the problems of fuel contamination associated with stainless steel.

Any ideas guys.

Richard
