Changing fuel filter on 200 HO

I saw a video where the guy changing fuel filter primed the new filter before putting it on. Anyone else do this?

 

TIA

Re: Changing fuel filter on 200 HO

If you are talking about the engine mounted filter, you do not have to prime it normally as it is on the pressure side after the lift pump.

 

If you mean the boat mounted filter assembly, then it is advisable to fill the canister first before installing.

Re: Changing fuel filter on 200 HO

thanks. yes, this is the engine mounted fuel/water separator. Now that you mention it, the video I was watching was of a fitelr that was on the boat side.
