Missing Racor shut-off

Try asking Trevor Bice, with NPT. Or...the PO.

I actually have (Had? Haven't seen it for a while...) a clamp made for pinching hose. Made by Lisle, I think.
I have a set of these, I've only used one once but it worked fine.

While you straightening everything out get rid if the cheap hose clamp on the hose in the left hand side of the picture and replace it with a good clamp like the one on the right hose.

And pick up a 7mm nut drive to tighten them with.

Mr. NS. I was going to suggest that BUT I've damaged hose doing so.
I thought about it as well, but I can see the hose splitting where it is clamped so thought better of it. An inline valve is the right way to do it I think. Now, I still am not convinced that I'm not missing something pretty basic.

The PO won't know. Nice guy, but didn't pay much attention to those details. Trevor is very good about answering questions, but some things are changed on the boats by the owners. I will send him an email;.

If you DO NOT HAVE a way to shut off the fuel from a tank at the source, changing the filter is the least of your worries.

Agree
At the first opportunity put in a shut off valve at the tank. Can't imagine a boat without one.

Per chance it is tied into the same line as your valved main engine fuel supply. You do have a valve there I trust?

I agree with both of you.

Great question, tbh I don't know. What I am aware of are valves at the base of the sight tubes, valves in the fuel transfer lines at the base of each tank, and valves at the primary filter manifold that controls supply and return for the main engine. I don't know if there are valves at the tank itself. It appears as if the supply lines exit from the top of the tanks which I haven't yet figured out how to access.

Time to do some more digging around.

I didn't bother signing up so don't know if there is more than one owner. There is also a NP Facebook. According to Mr. Google.

Yup. Small owner base so not very many active participants. I am trying to increase activity by asking a whole lot of questions. Most of them being answered by Rebel (Dan) from Rogue.

Dave. Will look at mine tomorrow. I have changed filter on gen, no problem there. Not sure of the rest of the plumbing, will check. Hardly ever run the thing. 2007 boat 280 hrs on gen. And not many of those since I have owned it. If you are worried about fuel leaking out of the primary filter on your set up, buy one of those hose pincher pliersand pinch off on the intake side. Those are not wire braid hose on my boat, so would not be a problem. Pinch it off change fiter, unpinch and away you go. After unpinching leave filter loose, when you or if you see ful dribbling spin tight and you should be good to go. Might be easier and better if you filled thatfilter first. Dan

Thanks Dan,

I may try pinching it and then install a valve at the filter housing so I can close it there in the future. After only a month, I think I am going to like having a genset.

You can pinch of the line as long as it is not steel braided. Also don't use the ones posted above. They are to small for anything bigger than about 3/8 hose. Sears sell a set that looks like pliers with smooth jaws. They work good for up to 1" hose. There are ones made by other mfg as well. Just make sure that you avoid the plastic ones. They work for small soft hoses but they will deflect and not seal good on stiffer hoses.
