My 1946 Truscott has a Chrysler Marine Flat 6 engine and is in need of a replacement fuel filter - the original Purolator P11_11 has not been manufactured for many years and there was not much left of the one that was in there! I contacted Purolator and they informed me that not only don't they make the p11_11 anymore, but also that there was not a replacement part number assigned. Any help is appreciated.

Most people leave the filter out and plum a modern inline filter outside the carb.What does the old one look like,is it brass? What model carb is it in.

I don't want to rain on anyones parade but I am under the impression that glass bowl fuel filters are not approved any more by the CG. I would wonder how your insurance company would view their use. Just an unpleasant thought regarding progress in boat "SAFETY". Not convinced in my own mind the glass bowl is any serious threat to boat safety. I think back to the days before back fire traps when most responible boaters had a brass screened pan mounted under their caruretors to catch the drip particularly from over choking to start the engine.

Thanks for the info! The carb is a 1 barrel updraft Carter BB2. The fuel filter is forward of the engine compartment a few feet, so it is easy to get access to it. It is also brass – at first, I thought it was a fuel water separator, but it turned out to be a cylinder-type fuel filter (not the screw on kind).

Not sure exactly what you need, but you can see a variety of fuel filters for marine use at this link and on the following page (use the next page link at the top of that page).
