    i have a 2004 42 Sundancer and looks like I may have to change my Racor filterss, i dont see the fuel valve shut off nearby for the Port engine, i see the valve for the Startboard motor but not the Port?? Any hints??

    Larry, remove the "extra" floor hatch to the engine room to give yourself as much room as possible. Stand up, facing aft, at the cockpit frig. Lay on your stomach, peer your head down into the hatch,

    and look back forward to the port fuel tank. The shut off valve is on top, just out of reach!! Seriously though, you can reach it. I found laying down on the cockpit floor was just easier to shut this valve off while my buddy was dealing with the port Racor!

    I had trouble finding the port shut off on my boat also the first time I worked on it. You can’t even hardly see the shut off, even when you know wear it is at.
