Maintenance… Filters filters and more filters…

We had a minor diesel leak in our Racor fuel filter/water-separator… By minor, I mean a drip every couple minutes.  It was gradually getting worse. We couldn’t figure out where it was coming from, so took the whole thing off the bulkhead and did a proper rebuild.  So glad we did! The paper filter was saturated.  O-rings (the source of the leak) had degraded into little rigid lumps.  Cleaned it out, put a new paper filter in, and got it all back together.  fuelfilterDid the air conditioning (heater at the moment) raw-water filter while we were there.  All and all, a successful day in the engine room. Laura has mad #KayleeSkills.  Great in the engine-room on her own, or as an extremely capable assistant.  It’s awesome.img_0054
