    H376 Jabsco to Raritan Sea era change

    10 Micron or 30 Micron Fuel Filter?

    Remember it does not take much to clog a fuel injector the better filter the more insurance you have for a good running engine. You may have to change the filter more often but you will not have to pay for cleaning injectors. Good luck Gary

    What just happened??

    Just remember changing to one new injector will have a better spray pattern than a worn injector. It's better to change all injectors at one time to equalize your engine. Also make sure that new injectors are for your application. check all injectors would solve the problem. Good Luck Gar
