Fuel FIlter seperator Issue or not..

Hi All

Had my boat engine changed a couple of years ago, and i am having it serviced this week, just looking at getting a new fuel filter for it in readiness and have stumble across a possible issue, or nothing at all..

The current filter is a Quicksilver unit, but this is listed for Mercury, Mariner and Force outboards plus MerCruiser Stern Drive and Inboard Engines

My engine was a mariner 150 2 stoke and is now a Suzuki DF150 four stroke, will the same filter be OK, or should this have been changed when the engine was changed, and if it does need changing, what to?

i think you may find there are one or two different length filters that will screw on the same head ,when i got my boat from usa i am sure it had an extended spin on can on it ,but i mistakenly bought a shorter version ,i put it on anyway (yam 115 four stroke ) and boated all last season with no issues ,,,i suppose if you think what fuel a 5.7 litre mercruiser would need (and thats where alot of these cans are fitted ) ,then we probhably dont have too many wories with our modern injected four strokes in relation to flow requirements
