RE: Water In Fuel/Optimax
[QUOTE]Siv - 8/15/2006 7:17 PM
I just put a new Optimax 150 on the boat this summer and after and a tiny amount of water comes out. I have a Racor in the line ahead of this filter, it is new and showed no water in it..I suspect
Can I be picking up this water after the Racor?
Or is the Racor not good enough to filter out that tiny amount of h2o and is anyone else having this problem with an Optimax..?
I would check with your mechanic if mercury allows a filter before the one on the motor. for warrenty issues if they may arise (lean condition with extra filter) I run a seperate 10 micorn filter per motor on my boat .out of warrenty as Im sure not going to drain one of there filters on the motor in 4 ' swells of my bracket ,also I seen crap get by the 10 micron filters as well, from what I have read and my own experience good luck with the water issues ,hope you make out better than myself
