Quite common to see primers on filters in the motor industry. Not so common are clear bowl separators.

BTW the reason that manufacturers recommend that the primer should be mounted on the filtered side is because if mounted before the filter debris and crap can damage and block the one way valve mechanism.

Thanks Andy, makes sense. I must be lucky, put in about 50 hours last year and not a trace of water or debris in the filter.

Interesting. Never seen that before. On my boat that setup would be useless, as the filter is mounted under the transom cap (aluminum transom) where you can't easily get at the bracket. Would be great for a normal transom mount though.

Only problem I see is that the bracket is aluminum. The aluminum bracket in my boat lasted about a season before all the paint fell off and the metal turned to a nice splotchy coat of aluminum oxide. Found a stainless bracket, and gave the aluminum one to a friend.
