Default Racor 900

Anyone have the part # and a source for the fuel bowl. Mine leaks a bit and is in need of a replacement.

Default Bought a new bowl - no heater connection holes

My PT's Racor 900FG was so full of crud, so I cleaned it up and the bowl is crazed and the drain is corroded so bad it won't seal, so I ordered a new bowl fromFisheries Supply that comers with a drain plug but no holes for the water sensor electrodes or the heater connections.

Why does my Racor have a heater - how is it turned on and when is it needed?

I was planning to drill holes in the new bowl, but I need to order a lexan drill, a regular drill will likely cause the holes to crack out.

I never get any water in the bowl - just dirt and crud from the tank, but not much of that, so I was thinking I may not connect the water sensor electrodes. Thoughts?

So, does this engine need a heated Racor bowl to keep the water from freezing overnight - here in Seattle, it rarely gets below freezing more than a few days in the winter.

From the condition of the wiring connections, I seriously doubt either the heater or the water sensors have been working for some years.

the heater is designed to warm the fuel, there is an internal thermostat, that closes somewhere around 35/40 degrees. Making it difficult to test.

I seem to remember?? there is a bowl available with a plug for either the water or heater?? check their web site.

Yes, the bowl has a second plug in the bottom for the water sensor, but not for the heater, the later models use a plug fitting in the side of the housing for the heater wires.

I'll see if they sell a water sensor plug, figure out if I can drill a couple holes for the heater wires.

I thought about replacing my clouded bowl but never got around to it. There were some replacement bowls on E bay.

Is not the heater wires part of the main aluminum filter body and not in the bowl as this is for the water sensor connection.
