I believe that all Yanmars installed in Amels originally had a water sensor in the fuel filter assembly. This sensor does two things. It eventually cuts off the supply of fuel to the injection pump and it lights up the Yanmar Panel Oil Lamp. The wiring to the sensor which is on the bottom nut of the fuel filter has a junction connection that should be unplugged when changing the fuel filter.
Changing the fuel filter with a water sensor:
I have never had water in my fuel filter, perhaps as a result of
my fuel polishing system, and would like to eliminate the wiring
and sensor. Don't I need a different setup under the filter?
Where would one get that?

you have a 4jh Yanmar engine and your instrument panel
does not have a light to indicate you have water in the
can eliminate the expensive filter, wiring, and sensor.
The only purpose of that sensor is to indicate you have
water in the filter. I eliminated that setup from my new
engine and added the one shown in the photo. It is so
much easier to change without the wiring.
