Racor 1000

I have Dual Racor 1000's. (Single Yanmar 6LPA-STP2). The previous owner left a 2 Micron filter in a parts box. I can't even find a 2 micron 1000 filter anywhere and will need to order them online.

This has me thinking. 2 micron seems extremely restrictive and the racor 1000 seems like overkill. I'm wondering if the PO installed the Racor 1000 in order to get the volume to be able to use a 2 micron filter?

I would hate to find out there are 10 microns installed and the 2 micron was an incorrect purchase left behind by the PO.

Any thoughts on what I should be installing for filters?
