Unable to buy Racor Filters

I have been unable to buy 10-micron replacement filters for my Racor 500. It would appear they have had some kind of supply disruption. Anyone know what the deal is or if some seller has a stash somewhere?

And I assumed "how can that be?" but indeed even a large establishment like Defender lists all 3 types of Racor 500 filters as "call" for availability. Weird.

It looks like Amazon and eBay both have them. If you get stuck let me know. I have a stash.

I can buy mine from Napa Auto parts (WIX) or diesel truck parts.

So far I have tried Defender, Discount Racor, The Diesel Store, and West Marine. The ones that accepted the order canceled it days later.

I just tried Hopkins Carter. Wish me luck!

Wix has a direct replacement. If you enter the full Racor part number into their cross reference it comes up correctly.

I doubt there is a shortage but you could call Parker to find out. They are available in the Bahamas but probably more than you would willingly pay.

I was at my local DD center today and asked about this. They said that Parker moved the filter makers into a new building this fall without putting extra stock aside to cover the interruption of supplies. Thus the current shortage.

Well that was a pretty bonehead move on their part. I wonder whose ass got chewed over that screwup.
