Doug,
I rarely had to change fuel filters because I cleaned my tank periodically and used Biobor JF additive.  But when I finally changed that one for the first time that was enough.  Complete Yachts, the Perkins dealer in Ft Lauderdale, sold me a spin on adapter for my 4154 for $35.  That was 1998.  They are still in business and I suspect still sell the adapter kits for most Perkins models. 
Whoever designed the original should be banished from engine design.

I have always procrastinated changing of my secondary fuel filter on my Perkins 4.236 because of the mess of changing a cartridge style filter and then having to bleed the lines to get it started again.  I've changed the primary very often and put off changing the secondary. I wanted to find a way to change from a cartridge to a spin-on type to make it easier and cleaner and found 2 ways to go; a replacement filter head from Foley Engines that was over $200 and an adapter that uses the existing filter head for less than $70 from BWParts.com: Fuel Filter Adapter Kit with Filter for Perkins 3.152 Motor - SKU: BW1296-K. This is made for the Perkins 3.152 motor but I confirmed the same size for my 4.236. Not sure if this will work for the more popular 4.154. My 4.236 used the filter #26561117 from Perkins which may be what other motors use and if so, should also be a candidate for a change.
I finished the install yesterday and ran her for 20 minutes without any issues. I did still have to perform a quick bleed of the system but didn't take more than a few minutes. I won't hesitate to change this easy spin-on filter (Napa Gold 3195) in the future, a lot easier and cleaner than the old way. One thing I will change in the future is the steel bolt that holds it on the head, changing to a stainless bolt at next filter change.

My boat was dismasted during Hurricane Harvey.
It just came up for auction on coopers marine Salvage. The indicate it fell off stands which I don’t think is true. It is in same place since it has been hauled out of water after storm. People in area said it has never fallen over. Boat inside never got wet. Engine has less than 60 hours, and runs great.

At bottom of page under asset specifications they have it confused with a 44’ that must have been dropped.

Any questions I may be reached at 361-649-2297. I am the original and sole owner.

Welcome to the forum!
So, did you close on your boat?  Give us an update... boat name (original and new, if you're planning on changing it), and where located.

Systems / Re: Head sinks and shower drains

Hi All,

If the head sink drain is connected to the toilet intake, when flushing the toilet does it suck air from the sink? Or when flushing do you have to operate the "Y" valve to shut off the sink drain?  OR must you run the water in the sink when flushing the toilet?  I guess I am missing something.

thanks,

Hi All,  We finally finished the granny bars install back in Oct.  I can confirm Contessa 1980 CSY 44 has a solid cabin top of fiberglass near and around the salon over head hatches. The area was about 3/8 - 1/2 inch thick.  I was mistaken back in August about foam coming out when drilling pilot holes.
