    Post Fuel Filter Volume Not The Same. Is It Okay To Replace?

    1985 Mercury 50hp 2-Stroke

    The plastic fuel filter reservoir is cracked and is being held tight with a zip tie. I know .

    Question: I bought an aftermarket fuel filter that was spec'ed to my motor but when I got it the volume of the reservoir is obviously different. Can I replace the old filter with the new one?
