Comments about Sierra Fuel Filter For Honda/Suzuki/Racor Engine, Sierra Part #18-7947:
This filter is a copy of the Racor filter/water separator. The filter in the Overton web site shows that the filter and bowl come as a single item with this purchase. What you get is JUST the filter and no clear bowl as shown in the site. Overton was contacted about this and all they said was that if I wanted the clear bowl, I could order it under a separate part number for about $29. What Overton needs to do is to add the words to their site page for this item to state that the clear bowl is a separate item. Lastly, removal of the old filter was near impossible and required the complete removal of fuel lines and the filter mounting base, from the boat. Then the mounting base had to be put in a vise to apply enough torque with a very large pipe wrench to remove the filter cartridge. The bowl could not be removed from the cartage, as it just spins. This removal problem is caused by sticking o'rings that will not release when a normal strap wrench is applied.
