I got ready to change my filters the other day and my filter mounts are in bad shape, they are not SS, I would like to replace them with the Stainless steel type, but I am unsure what type to buy, I have Racor S3213 filters, if that helps. Any vendors online and local would be awesome except for West Marine. Thanks, and sorry for my ignorance!

Alright, got theSS brackets, thanks Kenny, just another question, as far as sealing the brass fittings, what should I use, teflon tape, or some specific product, always heard not to use teflon tape with fuel products.

Don"t know if I am wrong just asking?

Correct. The link I gave you says that with the instructions on that unit. It comes with a tube a Teflon paste.



The reason for no tape is that they are afraid that the install person will get the tape to close to the end and strains will end up in the fuel system and cause problems.
