Default 2011 RATS Racor Info

I am working with some potential vendors for the upcoming 2011 RATS and need a little help here. What are the different model number Racor filter/separators that were used over the years on birds? I know most, if not all FC's used the 900FG. Or at least thats my impression. Are there other models used on PT, SP, BMC's, WB or M series (380, 450)?
If I am able to get a vendor who stocks Racor filters, biocide, conditioner etc. would there be an interest? The reason I ask is that there is diesel parts supply house that I buy from who may be interested in being a vendor at the rally so if there are other common items that y'all can think of please let me know. In other words, would there be enough folks who if the pricing was decent, would make it worth his while to set up a counter? Besides Racor filters are there other common spares that you carry that you may be interested in purchasing at the rally? This particular outfit is always at the FMCA rally in Perry so they know about rallies and what sells but some input from you folks would certainly help narrow down what they would focus on.

Thanks for your help,

John

John- The 1000FG is used for the 8V and 6V92's starting in 1986. The 900FG was in earlier models with the 6V92. Our Perkins generator has a 500FG. I sure would like to get a clearer bowl for the 500. I'd have him bring 5 cases of the 2020SM filters. They are used in my 1000FG and I've seen them on the s-60 Detroits too. It's a 2-micron filter. The drain plug o-ring is something I would need and some may want to get a new dash vacuum gauge. Most of the ones that I've seen in other coaches aren't working correctly and still register a vacuum when the engine is off

John,

The Racor for many of the 3208's is a 900FG,
The Racor 10 micron cartridge filter is 2040TM, because there is another 2 micron filter on the engine.

If this will help, the BMC uses two engine fuel filters:

The FS1242 is the main fuel filter/water separator.

The FS1251 is a smaller fuel filter mounted on the engine.

To my knowledge the only Racor style filter used on my BMC is for the Aqua Hot.
