The turbine centrifuge/conical baffle component inside the glass bowl came out readily enough and I cleaned it in fresh diesel, being careful not to lose the lightweight “check ball.” After installing a new check ball seal (from the Gasket Pack again), the spic-and-span check ball, and a new bowl gasket (the one shown in my fingers in the photo above), I reattached the bowl using the four machine screws and the metal ring. Then I secured the new drain assembly to the bottom of the bowl with the supplied gasket, remembering to tighten the assembly by turning clockwise.
Talking about windows on boats, there’s a lot to consider. Will the new ones hold up and be easy to maintain? Know the ins and outs of what’s available, and see why the crew on one project chose replacement windows from Vetus.
