2008 Mercury OptiMax 250 Pro XS Maintenance: Fuel Filter
This is a quick how-to video on replacement of the water separating fuel
filter on a 2008 Mercury OptiMax 250 Pro XS outboard. The procedure is very
simple and probably applies directly to any of the high performance 3.0L V6
I intend to put together videos covering many routine maintenance items for
these engines. Chassis and gearcase lubrication, spark plug removal and
replacement (not completely straightforward on an OptiMax engine), water
pump impeller replacement, etc. Hopefully the quality of future videos will
be better. Lighting was not adequate for this one, among other things.
This was done partly to help others, partly to help ME remember how to do
these things, and partly as an exercise in video recording and editing.
Mostly that last thing...I need a lot of practice. :)
Hydrolift F20 with Yamaha 225 hp going offshore
This is the almost impossible task to film with my mobile phone while
driving offshore with my Hydrolift, with one hand on the speed handle and
the other hand on the steering wheel.
The scene is shot on August 31th outside Lyngoer, south coast of Norway.
