10 micron paper filter element with seals for Racor 500FG filter. This filter was used on Catalina 42s built after September of 1995. Also used on the Catalina 350, Catalina 355, Catalina 380, Catalina 387, Catalina 400, Catalina 42, Catalina 440, Catalina 445, Catalina 470, and Morgan 45.
This replacement element has the capability of filtering out particles down to a size of 10 microns. Be careful which filter you use. There are several replacement elements available that look identical. For example, there is what appears to be the same filter that only filters down to 30 microns. It leaves particles in the fuel that are too big and may clog the engine's filter. Another version filters to only 2 microns. This is filtering particles from the fuel that are so small it may clog almost immediately leaving you without power soon after replacement.
