Adding a fuel water separator

JaH Member Posts: 0

I have a 98 FD201 with a Yamaha 115 2-stroke and I want to add a fuel filter / water separator.  Where would be the best place to mount it.  Thanks

    If possible, install it in your bilge area.  You should find a solid wood structure that you can mount it to that you'll be able to access via the port opens to it.

    I concur with nquirk. Mine was mounted in the motor well on the back of the cockpit coaming (for lack of a better term) due to previous owner being elderly. It is a Racor clear, removable settling bowl type. I know it was convenient for the PO but since I have cleaned up my fuel tank and use non-ethanol fuel exclusively, I haven't had to drain anything from the bowl all season and the filter unit and associated lines and primer bulb are constantly exposed to the damaging UV rays. I will probably move mine into the compartment located behind the pilot seat in the transom step-through. I've got allot of little holes to fill this off-season!!
