Is it an I/O? My opinion would be if you have the room put it on. You should be able to pick up the kit from west marine. An once of prevention.

I'd put on in. Right now you probably have a small bowl and filter. Doesn't take much water to fill that up. There should be instructions with the new separator as far as proper instillation.

It must be installed vertically, with the seperater canister hanging below. Otherwise you would not be able to remove it to change or dump the contents out without the fuel running into the bottom of your boat. Gas fumes are not good in an enclosed area. You should be able to get this at any marine service center.

Excellent, I am coming up this weekend to get things ready, The wax the hull, bottom paint the edges thing, then plan on launching the weekend after. Hopefully they will have the docks hooked up by then.

AND buy a bunch of extra fuel filters AND practice changing them in 6'-8' while halfway between the mainland and Isle Royale. That's when the crap that's been gathering in the bottom of the tank is going to get stirred up and sucked into your fuel system. This is the voice of experience...it isn't a whole lot of fun...

Lota Lota...

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.
