I have an Agglomerator with the following numbers on it, Lucas Type KSS (or K55) Des No 58363250. Can anyone tell me what type of filter I need as a replacement and can I get a 'handbook'/diagram for it? Please!

The normal CAV/Lucas/Delphi agglomerator fitted on inland boats uses a CAV/Lucas/Delphi 296 filter element. Why do you need a handbook for such a simple item - Top with pipe connections, filter, bowl, centre bolt to hold it all together plus 3 or 4 sealing rings. If it still has its automotive plastic drain plug then change that for a metal one available from most diesel specialists. Tony Brooks

PS - my rather outdated catalogue lists no agglomerators with that designation. They all start with FAS. Filters that look similar with shallow bowls start with FS or FSL. Sedimentors that use a cone (no filter) start with SS or PSS. Email a photo to Tony@TB-Training.co.uk Tony Brooks PPS - just found 5836B250 - its a sedimentor with no filter, just a cone. Strip and clean with lint free cloth & white spirit when you service your fuel filter. You will have one or two sealing rings depending upon design.

Many thanks Tony. I now have the confidence to dismantle it! I won't be able to photograph it untill April - can't wait to get cruising again.
