Racor Fuel filters

My new boat has Racor 110A. I need to change the elements. Anyone know of a web site that may have the instructions...or maybe you know?

To change the gas fuel filter I understand a "match\lighter" is involved.

Before opening your Gas Filter use your matches to see your keyboard and look up what you want on Google.

Shut your gas, open the bolt on the bottom and put a can underneath. Then open the bolt at top. Not sure if it's the top that screws off or the bottom (whichever isn't bolted to the wall). Replace the filter with a 10 Micron, close it up, close the bottom bolt, fill with fuel and close the top bolt.
Always put oil pads under your work.
Alternative method: open bolt, light match. Never have to change again.

Good thing that K1W1 & NYCAP enlightened you with such matchless advice.
In any other Forum, your question might have ignited a seriously incendiary commentary that would only flare up out of control..

K1W1 –Thank you for the site. I printed it and placed it in my maintenance book. If I had “Binged” it myself then that would lead to a boring forum.

NYCAP123 – That’s the “inside” information I was looking for. Thank you.

Loren – It would have been a blast reading it…
