    Problem solved; the old units were not plastic. They are aluminum, painted a funky color that made them look and feel like plastic.

    Yeah, illegal for gassers because the bowl can melt and then you have raw gas all over. Not a problem on a diesel. The wire in question is attached at the top of the unit, not at the bottom. And again, it's a ground.

    You cannot use the plastic fuel bowls in an inboard application for gas engines, not sure about diesel. Some Racors for diesel can have a wire for water detection.

    Racor Filters (39)90 3288-gctid397650

    Awhile back I bought a couple Racor units from a guy on the site who had upgraded to the 500's from the stock units on our 32 footers. My 1990 Racors have a plastic housing; the ones I bought, showing 1987, are metal. Anyone know why my plastic-housed Racors have a ground wire attached at the top (into the plastic) but there is no such attachment on the metal ones? I drilled a hole and attached the wires to the metal units for the heck of it. The filter units are mounted on a sheet of plywood, so again, I don't understand the need for a ground wire.
