Oil Filters/DIESEL INBOARD – MAINTENANCE
• Replace filter after first 20 hours of engine operation.
• After first 20 hours filters are to be replaced every 50 hours of operation or at a minimum
of once yearly.
• Add a coating of engine oil to sealing gasket prior to installation to prevent filter from
“freezing” in place and allow for easy removal.
• Use marine rated oil filters and not automotive filters. Marine filters generally filter at a
higher micron level and also allow for more oil flow at higher rpm’s than automotive
• Use the correct grade and weight of marine rated oil to protect your engine.
Follow engine manufactures recommended procedures on oil and filter changes. In
general, be sure to run engine to operating temperature to aid in removing all oil from
crankcase and keep debris suspended in oil for removal.
• Never run engine out of the water without a properly installed flushing device in place.
• Do not over-tighten filter.
• Be sure and run engine and check for leaks after any oil service.
Oil Filters/DIESEL INBOARD – TECHNOLOGY
• Steel outer case for maximum strength. Won’t crush like aluminum.
• High efficiency filtration media.
• Anti-drain back technology (where applicable) helps keep oil in the system and limits
wear and tear on engine start up.
• Epoxy coated canister prevents corrosion. Specifically designed to meet the high flow
needs of today’s marine engine.
• Large capacity / high volume diesel specific filters.
