The stainless head units are the best kick for the $, as you will not be replacing them again a few years down the road when the alum units look like crap.





I bought mine here.

Click "Fuel Accessories" then "Fuel Filters" in the coloum on the left side of the page. That website doesn't allow direct links.



Scroll down to the bottom of that 1st page that pops up.

Your missing the point. The alum powdercoated ones corrode from having the stainless fasteners in contact with the housing.



So it looks like crap after a few years with the powdercoating flaking off on th outside. With that kit they include the teflon paste sealer for the barb nipples and tell you NOT to use Teflon tape on the threads.



Plus your getting the water sediment bowl that can be drained and checked easily, IF you install it right so you can get a cup under it to catch the bleed off.

Yep, I have been on a guys boat in the past that rusted a pin hole in the bottom of one of the regular fuel filters well after we had cleared the Pass. This of course shut the motor down. Fortunately while this fellow had forgotten to change the filter on a regular basis, he did have the stuff onboard to bypass the filter and continue on that day.
