What water seperator?

I'm looking to install a fuel filter water separator on my RIB. Fitted is an 85hp Yamaha 2 Stroke model number 688 85aet. What filter do the more experienced of you recommend?
Thanks

Yamaha do one with a clear bowel on the bottom so you can see any water. It's black plastic, but check the price of the cartridges.

If you are not bothered about a clear bowel then any marine diesel filter will do the job, like quicksilver or Delphi ones are good and cheap too.

We run a small Racor unit, it's nice and compact and rated up to 75l/hr.

I looked at some and they were quite big and bulky and waaay over what we needed.

Standard canister is best, as you will always be able to find a can that fits.

Racor 3213 (pretty sure that was the number) is a fairly common canister, interchangeable with Yamaha and standard Quicksilver canisters.

Yamaha makes a stainless steel mount that looks a lot better after a season or two than the standard painted aluminums ones. Can be a pain to find though.

My thoughts and experience are posted in this previous thread.
fuel separator

FWIW there isn't a canister type filter that won't flow enough fuel for the outboard you have.

That's great thanks. Re the Delphi diesel filter - bought one off that well known auction site and then did some digging. The Delphi filter is no longer recommended for petrol as it destroys the glues in the filter and strips the paint from the inside of the filter - hence why I am looking for a different one. Instead use one of the other compatible filters rather than the Delphi one.

What's the quicksilver head made of please? (I have Delphi at present but they corrode horribly after a year or so in the elements -probably just cosmetic but still - and it leaked from the tap on the bottom, came back to the boat once to find it dripping fuel out of the trunk, not good....)
