Sorry Capt Bill I don't have a link but any Cat dealer will have them in stock.
Please see photo's of our boat in France showing the filter, insert, fuel flow centrifuge, the mark of the fuel flow on the plastic fuel flow centrifuge and the sump with drain.
I've found over the years that this is the simplest and most cost effective.


The last photo is of Richards boat in Waterford, Ireland.

Capt Bill.
The fuel filter/water separator comes in three parts, the head, the disposable canister filter and a clear,water/sediment bowl.
If you unscrew the plastic top you will see in the centre of the filter head a plastic fitting with 2 small vanes on the top.
As the fuel flows into the filter it turns these vanes and separates water/sediment from the fuel.
As the bowl is clear you can see any water/sediment and you simply open the drain at the bottom to remove it.
The filter is a Cat Fuel/Water separator part no 159-6102.
A simple, cheap and effective system with a sump and drain on the main fuel tank, not once in over 40 years cruising have I ever broken down with contaminated fuel.
