Extrapolating some of the advice here I've serviced all filters, replaced Racors (a PO had gorilla glued leak on drain!) replaced all other filters and put in new FI's. Think I'm ready?....nevermind I know the answer. Why are all boat owners cynics?
Again I really appreciate all the advice and have acted on it.
p.s. Who in the he!! invented vacuflush! Talk about not for the faint of heart !!!!
Vacuflush heads are not my preference. We have pulled them out of several boats and replaced them with Raritan Marine Elegance heads. Just got done replacing the VF in our Formula with a ME. Some people love the VFs but they take too much maintenance IMO. And when they get a vacuum leak, hang on…. You can spend a looong time troubleshooting the VF, and a lot of money on parts.
