Good to know. Thanks for clarifying that.

Thanks Oly, I must have misread on here, they even stated it was a replacement.

Yep it was under fuel filters on the G1 engines which is on the outboard but on the low pressure circuit. Reaction buy after reading that topic. Ops

So the new number is for G2s only?
Evinrude parts list the old # for a Gen1.

The 5009676 fuel filter is the same one as the #502906 except it has a zinc-plating for improved corrosion resistance

That's a good move.  I had a #502906 on the shelf in the garage for about 6 months and could not use it because of the surface rust.

So, which strap wrench do you recommend? 

This type won't work....

because you can't get it under and around the filter

Do you use the nylon or rubber strap type strap wrenches.

No "steel strap" type wrench is going in there, to my knowledge.  Unless you can find a 'flexible rubber' strap 'plumber's wrench' that can be disconnected and passed behind the filter, and then tightened and turned?  A 'Jaw Type' may get you by this time.  Not sure I've seen a nylon type, but surely haven't seen 'everything'.  ;-)

Oil on the new rubber gasket may help get it off the next time?  Pretty much hand-tight + just a bit, but insure there are no leaks.

they also make a filter remover that looks like a pair of Channelock pliers but with radiused and toothed jaws to grip the filter securely from the side and turn it.

A few more questions...

I used the Channelock pliers Seahorse mentioned above to remove the filter. I'm guessing these are the water sensors?

[Fuel%20water%20separator_zoom%202-XL] 

1) They have some frayed plastic on them (red arrows). Is that OK? Is there a trick to getting them positioned correctly in the new filter? I had to gently push them a little toward the center while I tilted the new filter into place.

2) I didn't see any water in the fuel from the old filter but there was a good amount of fine black specks. Is it normal to see that?

3) I think I can do this better next time but would appreciate any pro tips for this procedure?

I'm concerned that the "fraying" on the plastic insulation on the sensor probed might have been caused by rubbing against the threads of the original filter as I removed it. If the fraying is enough to expose the probe in that location, will that disable the water in fuel alarm? Perhaps I need to replace the bracket assembly?
