New Racor 900FG turbine filter assembly

Asking $195.

This is a new, never installed marine turbine filter unit. Pickup at Shilshole Bay Marina here in Seattle or meet locally (abiding by social distancing guidelines, of course ).

Will ship.

hate to say it, but that isn't a marine unit. It lacks the UL and USCG ratings for marine use, at least within an engine room. It doesn't have, for example, the metal shields.

Racor can tell you the parts to switch out to upgrade it to the MA standard (except the rating sticker).

I bought the parts to upgrade my two at RacorStore.com. It wasn't cheap. See the invoice attached. It includes the necessary upgrades, plus drain valves and an extra gasket kit.

It's what is installed on our boat (apparently since 1989 when new). In any case, it's a heck of a deal

Yep. Mine, too.

The requirement is part of UL 1105 and incorporated into ABYC.

Just wanted buyers to know that if they care about this fire safety rating the 900FG is upgradable, but doing so cost me about $140/unit to upgrade.

Perfect for a Lehman conversion.

Any engine room fire hot enough to melt through that unshielded bowl is already so well involved that the boat is doomed anyway. Plus, the metal bowl that meets the ABYC recommendation only partially (less than half?) shields the bowl. Big deal. Boat doomed anyway. In my humble opinion, this ABYC recommendation is nonsensical. If a boater is that concerned about an engine room fire for this aspect, replace the Racors with all-metal can filters. Sure, no sight bowl for quick viewing of water or crud but more fire safety.

A Lehman 120 or 135 does not flow enough fuel to spin the Racor so, except for the clear bowl to check easily for water or crud, the Racor has no advantage over a spin-on filter head. In fact, it is a space hog. My opinion, of course. Others have a different view.
