  • Fuel Filter location?

    Changed manifolds and risers on my 7.4 carb CC25 this weekend. The risers were two years old but the manifolds were original to the boat (1997). I changed everything as a precautionary measure. I'm happy to say that the old ones looked great! The boat was flushed after every use so that must have helped.

    Anyway, I was looking for a fuel filter to change and couldn't find one! Was a fuel filter standard on the CC25? If so, where is it hiding?

    If not, what size/unit would you recommend and where is a good mounting location?

    I just installed a Racor 660RRACo2in my 25 with a new 8.1l Crusader. It's rated at 90gph which might be a little overkill but probably provides a little less flow resistance.

    Here'a a link to the cheapest source I could find for them. They give a 40% discount on Racor filters. I mounted it between the port lift cylinder and the front bulkhead of the engine compartment.

        Yes it's still here for about another two or three weeks. I'm working on mounting the batteries and tying the jackshaft balancing weights down and a couple of other small things. Basically it's about ready

        The wife had hip replacement surgery 12/29 and last week developed a bad deep antibotic resistant Staff infection(MRSA). I think she may be out of the hospital tomorrow. She's been in there a over week fighting the infection

        You have to use the 02 version of the Racor filter as it's a inbord and enclosed. It would be nice to have the cleas bottom to see water etc but thw -01 mocels are only rated for outboards.

        Give me a call.

          Great meeting you and your son this weekend!

          You have a good looking boat and that new Crusader 8.1 sure looks sweet.
          It looks like you'll be ready for an offshore run any day now!
