I need to do it too. I was thinking it's simple as unscrewing the old one and replace it by a fesh one? But i might be wrong.

I thought of that but I figured that was WAY to easy to be right haha. Fyi someone else told me to fill the new fuel filter back up with fuel before you screw it in(I guess so there is less air in the system).

Filling it is a possible mess and not needed.

Yeah, also i think you possibly have to put some oil on the gasket so next time it's is not to hard to remove.

Yep, alittle oil on the seal.

Ive never had a hard time removing my fuel filter. My oil filter on the other hand is always a total pain in the a**. Anyone else have a hard time removing their oil filter?

I would change your impeller while you fuel filter is out, I always do them both because it seems way easier with the filter out of the way to get to the impellar and all the bolts and stuff to change it out. I never refilled mine, just turn the key to on for a few seconds before hitting start, it will prime just fine.

Yes Coop it was a pain getting the oil filter off. I think I was just barely able to get it off with my hands. How often do you guys change the fuel filter??

On my last boat I put it on dry cycled the key 2-3 times and it fired up no problems. Sparky and I don't always agree either but I have done it both ways. I prefer not to fill for reason mentioned it can be messy and if it can be done empty. which it can then why take a chance on spilling fuel. If your pump burns up or did burn up it would have went out any way.

My marine mechanic said he usually fills them up but not a must so I filled it up half way.

The above link was for the R & I of the fuel filter right off Seloc.com but it only takes you to the log in page but it gave no reference to pre fill, never even mentioned it. Large oil and fuel filters, sure pre fill but the smaller ones dont hold hardly anything. Waste of time. Boats are basic compared to my world!

ya right

you never worked on a tight ass boat, plus you guys work over-head not under head

now if you worked on cars in the salt belt, i might give you props

SELCO is garbage, and as an ASE tech, thats not too bright

selco is like all-data, i have seen sheet way off!!!


FILL THEM, its not mess with a turkey baster

Yes it could be messy fuel spill on the interior. Not every one on here is mechanically inclined. I thought you posted before you did every thing by the book. Now your saying selco and all-data have been way off before.

The members already kicked him off of those forums. That's why he's keeping us company.
