Isn't there a bleed screw on the top?

One question for you though, do both tanks drain down equally? I suppose you could control which tank feeds by opening and closing the tank breather screws.

Yes I had one of them - worked fine but did corode quickly. I did however crack the casing eventually by overtightening one of the barb connectors for the tank so if you went for it, just be careful. Stainless version would be better!

No bleed screw. I can undo the glass bowl via the central bolt (10mm SS) and it breathes round the seal.

Tanks don't drain down equally because I've got it set up to connect to 2xflexi tanks and a plastic tank at once-so when the flexitanks are empty I just open the breather screw on the plastic tank. The flexitanks drain equally though.
It works quite well-I only have to start physically switching connectors over after using 70l-and then it's all hooked up again to the other 2 flexi tanks and the 2nd plastic one-or I can hotswap it without any danger of the fuel pump sucking on vacuum.

You can get a Lucas/CAV one from a Diesel specialist for around 20 and replacement filter elements only cost around 2 apiece, but some of the parts are prone to corrode when splashed with seawater. Won't affect its function though.

Racor...the King of Separators

I consider my Racor filter an essential piece of gear. Once I leave the harbor, an engine outage could set me up for a two to three week drift downrange. Don't leave home without it.....as they say!
