        Comments about 200R Spin On Series Diesel Fuel Filter/Water Separator:

        As stated in other reviews it is very difficult to unscrew the filter from the head. Took it back to West Marine twice to get them to loosen so I would not damage the filter. Then installed it handtight and it leaked at the threaded seam between filter and head. Had to tighten it with a strap wrench to seal. Yes I lubed the gaskets before installing. It will be very difficult to change the filter underway if nercessary. I have about 12 hours of operation with the filter asembly and it seems to do its job with the 10 micron filter.

        Comments about 200R Spin On Series Diesel Fuel Filter/Water Separator:

        The filter and base are very well made and I trust it to provide great service. However it is extremely hard to remove the actual filter element, additionally the sight bowl is very tight also. I think thses must be assembled using some sort of air wrench, with far to much torque.

        You might very well destroy the filter body simply trying to remove the filter element to replace it when the time comes. As another guy here mentioned, before you install this make sure you can remove the filter and the sight bowl. As a matter of fact I wouldnt even leave West Marine without being able to get it apart, because they told me they would not take it back with any scuffs on the filter body. Its a gamble with that kind of return policy, I also tried called Racor and have yet to recieve a call back.

        Good luck, hope this helps.

        Manufacturing Defect

          Best Uses

            Comments about 200R Spin On Series Diesel Fuel Filter/Water Separator:

            I purchased this unit to install on my sailboat. Before I installed this unit, I attempted to unscrew the filter from the aluminum housing. I did this to ensure that the filter could be removed and changed if necessary while I was out cruising.

            I tried for 2 hours using a filter strap, filter wrench and a vise on a work bench at the marina. I also had a friend who works on offshore oil rigs help me. We were unsuccessful in removing the filter from the housing and we began to destroy both the filter and the housing.

            I believe that the filters are assembled at the factory with an air wrench with such torque that the end user is literally unable to remove the filter.

            Anyone who buys this product should make sure and remove the filter from the housing before installing this unit in a boat. Then coat the gasket with some diesel and hand tighten it onto the housing. The only reason not to do this would be if you believe you will never have to change the fuel filter.

            I believe that many of these filters have been installed on boats, and when the boater needs to change a filter, possibly in a storm or in rough conditions, the filter will be physically impossible to change. This could lead to loss of the vessel and/or loss of life.
