I just got my boat back yesterday and started going over things and looking at equiptment. Haven't had a chance to get it on the water yet. Engine is Honda 225 HP. They installed a new fuel/water filter in the motor well. I went to check it out and it say Honda/Racor and is smaller than a standard Racor filter system. They probably used the small one because of space, but, I cannot locate a spare filter element to carry on the boat just in case I would get some bad gas. I guess in comparison, it like 10-12 oz container instead of 16-18 oz size. The numer on the filter is 17670-ZW2-030GH.
Any ideas, I hate to pay HONDA price, but if I have to.
I googled your filter number (don't include the dashes), and came up with a number of European websites that sell parts for Honda engines, including racor fuel filters. Did your yard install a European filter?
I have no idea if it is a European filter. It was put on at CapSante Marine in Anacortes, WA.
I looked at the site of your url on Thursday, could find it there. The paperwork that was in the box full of stuff I got with the owners manual shows the standard filter and replacement elements.
I've got Racor/Parker 800 number, will have to give them a call on Mon
Took the boat out this AM and ran for an hour,AWSOME motor, but heavy at 604 lbs. Boat handled the weight ok as it was designed for twin engines which would have weighted in around 700+ lbs.
You are right on Nick. I called Racor 800# and the tech dept knew right off the top of his head. Now to find a place cheaper than the rip off Honda shop. Everything I buy there is really higher than other places. I found some online, but by the time you get shipping added it brings the price back to suggested retail of $21.95. One place had the element for $12, but $9 shipping.
Any suggestions for which oil filter to use?
I did some google searches and came up w/purolater L14459?
