    Default Yamaha Fuel/Water Separaters

    Dewey's is closed today and I was wondering if any of you Hewescraft owners happen to know the filter number/size on their disposable Water Separators off the top of your head or have one you can look at easily? I'm stuck on the slope right now so I can't look. Planning on making an Amazon order today for that and other things so its home when I get home. Thanks in Advance.

    I had no idea Napa Gold made water separator filters? Napa Gold is all I use for oil filters for all my vehicles.

    I just bought a Yamaha Fuel/Water Separator for my airboat. The Yamaha Fuel Filter that Dewey's sells is MAR-FUELF-IL-TR. With that said I was told by the guys at West Marine that all the large Sierra Fuel/Water filters will work. But the one that crosses is SIERRA 18-7866 FUEL WATER SEPARATOR FILTER 10 MICRON XL. Hope that is the numbers you were looking for.

    Chico,
    Found another out in the shop WIX 33225, same suffix #225. Recurring theme!
    I had to verify the Nappa Gold and it's just that, water/fuel.

    When I cross reference the 3225 it comes out with a filter that will fit a yamaha but not marine. Another site says it will work. But when I cross reference what AK Grumpy said he just bought, it will not cross reference. I wonder if deweys changed filters but the size is the same? Like Gramps said, West marine said any of the Sierra filters will fit.

    No clue, sorry.
    My airboat, the Wolly, and the bayliner all share that same #225 screw on filter.
    The Wolly has Yamaha's on the back as well......

    Since I really like Napa Gold Filters, I'm just gonna hold off till I get home and do a hands on comparison. Maybe their web site is not Marine Savy. Napa Gold filters are a Better price and filter IHMO! Thanks!!!

    I went to Napa and low and behold, you were correct. Got both filters and 2 oil filters as well and saved me about 20 bucks, plus IMHO I got a superior filter. Thank You Sir!!!

    Did you get the filters with or without the bowls? I haven't found them anywhere very cheap. I'm needing the bowled filters but just the filters. If that makes sense.

    Unbowled. And yes it makes perfect sense. I really don't worry about excessive water as I normally pump my fuel through Mr. Filter. Hope I didn't just jinx myself. Guess you could always screw them off, dump and then put them back on.

    OK thanks. I was a little confused when my part numbers were a little different than yours and my filters were around $40 each. I might just go pick up two of the regular style for spares.

    Why don't you guys just stick on a nice Racor filter and you'll just about never have to change the filter on the engine and you can even get a Racor with a alarm on it that comes on when water starts to fill the filter.

    Steve that's what I have. One for each motor. I have no idea when the filters were changed last though. But the bowls look clean and no water at all

    fuel filters.jpgThis is what I changed to. I replaced the two spin on filters you can just see the bottom of with the bowl type like I installed for the kicker. I got them from Greatland Welding in Palmer.

    Yep. That's exactly what I have. So do you need to change the filters very often on those types or just drain them every now and then.

    Depends on how much fuel you run through the filter a season and how good or bad your fuel is. One bad tank of fuel can clog a filter, conversly clean fuel you can multiple seasons with no problems. Something to consider is what type of engine you run. If you're running a 4s fuel injected outboard, it doesn't take much water to take out your injectors, so replacing a $20 filter element more often than not is cheap insurance.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
