Happy holidays.I am installing a new sediment bowl screen on my 24 runabout. Must the new screen be soldered on?
The originals were crimped on. It does work best if you solder on the new one. Use an iron, not a torch. Clean and flux the brass and the screen, set it over the opening with some type of small weight on the center of the screen just heavy enough to insure the screen touches the brass rim at all points, then solder in position. Use a new lead gasket when assembling to the sediment bulb.
Thanks for the advice.
