I've purchased these for boats I've had in the past. On the other hand, I've never bothered to change the filters as I have big Racors on the front end.

You never change you engine mounted filters!?

What micron are your Racors?

When was the last time someone ordered these parts. It looks like a fantastic idea and would certainly beat the old system.

Capt. Bill. On my last boat I changed them at 1,000 hrs, cut them open, they were clean. I believe the Simms will tolerate 30 microns without a problem.

They are available in England

There is a company called ASAP Supplies,
Racor Spin On Conversion Kit
They have the Parker logo next to the item

They also have a "Drive Force" brand
CAV Filter Metal Bowl Conversion

The price difference seems significant with the Parker conversion costing
$127 and the Drive Force costing $32. Doesn't make a lot of sense.

This is the full search page:
Search results for: 'CAV filter adapter to CAS'

I have not bought a conversion kit, but it has been on my mind for a while. My CAV filters on my Ford Lehmans seem to leak on occasion for no reason

I got busy and googled Racor conversion

I found it in the Racor 2015 catalog on page 15

Dp-1000 fuel filter adapter

These are now available to purchase on ebay. I have the remainder of the supply. Would love to sell the entire line, but until then check ebay.

eBay Motors, Car & Truck Parts, Filters, Fuel Filters

You can contact me here as well. Credit card, paypal or through ebay only.
Thanks!

I don't believe the drive force unit is for the same CAV filter head we've been discussing although I could be wrong.

Dabatzzz,

2 questions. Do these fit a Ford Lehman SP225? And on ebay, it says that there are 5 but that it includes 3 complete assemblies. For the $200 deal, is it 5 or 3. It appears that it is 5, but I would like to confirm that it is indeed 5 complete assemblies.

Comodave,


Yes it will fit the Ford Lehman SP225


I will look at the eBay post.
A lot of 5 would be 5 complete assemblies. Sorry for the error. I will fix it today.
I can also give you my direct email for credit card purchase.
Thanks!
