Quicksilver Water Separator

I am trying to change my Quicksilver water separator part no 35-802893Q01

This is installed in the corner of my console locker. I have been unable to remove it with a strap wrench as it is too difficult to get at. I can only reach it with one hand. What I need is one of those end cap wrenches. Does anyone know what size to buy? I have left the new filter in the boat (doh!) so am unable to measure it accurately. It has 15 flats and is about 90mm diameter.

Thanks

Ginkgo

I think that these are clock wise to loosen

Quicksilver should be counter clockwise to loosen. Lefty loosey, righty tighty.

You can buy a set of the wrenches from an auto parts store, or a place that sells cheap tools. They don't need to be high quality. You could also try a giant pair of channel lock pliers, or they make special filter pliers, but they too require enough room to swing them.

P C normally I would agree however for some reason I seem to recall that the filters are different.

Don't see any reason why reverse threading a filter canister would be of use. Didn't see anything to that effect while looking at online descriptions, either.

OTOH, I seem to recall that the oil filter housing bolt on my Dad's Mercedes was reverse threaded, and saw no reason for that, either. Go figure.
