    Oil & Fuel Re: MF240 Perkins Fuel Leak at Filter

    The ridge of the filter sits more inside the o ring and seals on the "lip".

    By any chance do you have the part number for the Perkins filter? If not I can try and google it.

    Thanks!

    Re: Adding LED work lights

    What is the amperage requirement of your LEDs?

    As long as the light circuit is properly fused now, if the LEDs draw too much the fuse will pop before you do any damage.
