Let me first start by saying this is completely my fault, I am not blaming any company or order filling person. Last time I did an engine service, I went home and with a few clicks of the mouse, the new filters arrived a week or so later. I didn’t pay too much attention at the time (my fault), I did notice that the fuel filter was a different part number, but it was a different brand so I just took them to the boat. Fast forward to present time and fresh engine service happening. Not to start an argument so I will just call this the fuel filter on the engine, was Universal 298854. The new one is Westerbeke 36918. I tried to find if this was a cross reference part number but I don’t think so. It is listed as an oil filter on the Westerbeke site. The size and threads are the same, but looking inside the oil filter appears to have a bypass. My gut tells me I threw away some money on an oil filter I can’t use. Hoping some of the smart people here have some insight as to whether this is a door stop or not. Thanks!
