Hello Ribsters,

Hi Yoyo,

All Lucas filters used to be green like the one you bought but Lucas was bought over by Delphi a few years back and changed the colour to red. So its exactly the same part number as the Delphi 296 pictured.

Hope this helps

Robbie

Not wshing to state the obvious, but I am pretty sure this is a filter designed for use on a diesel system.

There has been much debate on this subject recently.

This units main job is to work as a water separator. The filter is used as a course filter only, there is an inline petrol filter supplied with the engine located inside the cowl.

Hello Ribster’s

Ok, I fitted the Separator / filter to the rib this afternoon.

I decided to use banjo type fittings as this makes a tidy installation IMO. I sized the engine fuel line length just longer than required when on full steering lock and engine tilted etc..

I have manufactured an aluminium “tube fitting” that both the banjo’s will screw into just in case there is a problem, this means I can bypass the CAV if necessary.

After reading recent threads on the subject I decide to relocate the primer bulb adjacent to the fuel tanks which are located in the main console, it seems to work much better than when it was at the transom.

Looks tidy yoyo, just a heads up on one thing that I never mentioned on all the previous threads about using this type of filter .. as I was too busy fire fighting .. they use rubber seals top and bottom, and some use one in the neck .. petrol will harden these, diesel softens them, so when you change the filter, do all the seals too .. some people are tempted to leave them in place because they stick there , but whack em out and use fresh ones that come with the can every time if your using petrol
