Does sedimentor have internal filter?

Recommended Posts

Ok I'm getting round to doing the sedimentor today, the new one has no filter inside (like the fuel filter) is this correct? It's basically just an empty shell?

Don't know if there is a element inside the body, there will be a seperate fuel filter in the engine bay bolted to the bulkhead.

So there's no element in the sedimentor then? My book is showing no too. Just wanted to check

there may be a seperator of some type so that heavy deposits of sediment/rust get seperated & don't end up in the filter.

I have a similar thing on my tractor, nothing inside, its just a place for heavy stuff like rust and water to sit before the fuel goes to the filter. I guess it is just to extend the service life of the filter if you are using fuel that has sat around a while in a metal storage tank.

Might be of interest for preventative maintenance.

Thanks Paddy I did see that thread a while ago and commented on it. 

Suppose it wasn't as bad as some have it. ?
