It's that big round plastic thing that says Racor.

Don't think your 300 hp Cat has a engine mounted water separator. I would look at the Racor filter then the Racor gauge for leaks.

Your Racor is in the same compartment as the propane tank. It's on the left top corner of the compartment. You can barely see the T-Handle sticking up. I service mine from the bottom which is what I imagine most guys do on the later model FC's.

Yes I know you guys need more info. A week ago I stalled out a mile from home. I had already pulled info from website to change throttle rod seals on injector pump. When idling it dripped fuel oil.

Service guy got me going with ether and I dropped it off at his shop. He was going to replace seals for me but decided he couldn't do it but he said water separator was loose, he tightened it, and said there was no problem driving it anywhere. I picked it up yesterday and it stalled a mile from his shop with great clouds of white smoke. He came down and we couldn't get it started. I call a wrecker and now it's sitting in its home. I started looking at system and started with water separator. It's not wet, but that's all I did today.

As fas sucking air, that's just a WAG. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I doubt the electric pump is working.

Hi Mike, Tom, Bill and Randy,there is no electric pump at the tank.

There is oil and fuel in engine valley.

Should I install a pump and change the throttle rod seals on the injector pump?

Before you start throwing parts at that engine, clean the valley of oil and fuel. Then find the leak. It could be the shaft seals or supply lines or return lines or? You need to know for sure where the leak is before you start the fix.
