2 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 2 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. Although we normally recommend going with a 10 micron filter a 2 micron can be used, just make sure you have plenty of spares as they are bound to clog up much more quickly than their 10 micron counterpart.
