Hi Antonio, On our
Santorin we kept the original Perkins water/diesel separator
and added the Parker Racor fuel between that and the engine.
That way you do not disturb the line to the Espar heater and
you retain the water-in-fuel electric warning sensor that is
in the original separator, which will light a warning light
on the engine control panel.
That being
said, I see no problem with your installation. The Espar
pump is such a low volume pump that I can't see it
sucking fuel from the engine side, which is totally closed.
And, if it is running when the engine is running it would
still not draw from the engine side.

Hi owners, is
Vagabundo calling.... I want upgrade my old water/gasoline
separator to a new parker system. You can see in the first
and second pics my actual installation: One old decanter
with two IN and two OUT hole; in one of this there is the
eberspacker pump. In the new "racor" instead I
have only one IN and one OUT...so I have to chose where
install the eberspacker suction duct, you can see in the
last pics my solution. I have fear that in my installation
the heater pump could create problem to the engine in the
case If it finish gasoline inside the filter. I upload the
pics on facebook and on the group.

QUESTION: wich is your opinion? Will eberspacker such from
tank ? Or from the filter ?!?

Thanks and Fair wind
