i really need help once again! I appreciate all of the previous help given.
I have a 47’ 1968 Commander with 8v53 Diesel engines. I have pulled it and am doing some maintenance. One thing is to replace the basket and gasket on the strainers. I have Groco number s2500 on the casting. I can’t seem to find this anyplace. Has anyone any recommendations or done this?
Thanks, in advance, for any help.
Have you called Groco? They were very helpful in getting me the service kits for my strainers.
From Groco site: Techs are available by phone from 7:30am - 4:00pm EST. Call 410-604-3800 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You need a service kit for The SA2500. Available at defender.com for $15.99. Their part #501571
I did mine last year. Make sure you lube the valve and plug underneath
Look at this to choose the correct part number for the type basket you want, plastic is just fine.
Thank you so much. Your information was absolutely spot on. We have the parts on the way. I appreciate all of your help.
