Racor Retro Fit Kit For 200200 Uses S3230P Spin on Filter
The RK12963 kit is just a new bottom sensor and S3230P filter. If you have replaced the filter before, this should be very similar to your previous experience with the 200200 filter. All they have done with this kit is make the sensor a separate assembly.
The RK12963 is a one-time retrofit kit that changes a 200200 element to a S3230P element on an old, obsolete Racor 90S1230C Integrated assembly.
The conversion incorporates a high quality water probe (with connectors), an indestructible metal bowl, and a high-capacity 30 micron element. Once the retrofit from a 200200 element is complete, customers would then purchase the S3230P replacement element for their next service.
90S1230C Integrated assemblies are two-stage filtration and repriming systems featuring a solid-state controlled electronic priming pump, electronic air purge, a cleanable pre-filter with a stainless steel element and a fuel filter/water separator. These complete fuel management systems isolate contaminants present in diesel fuel and trap them prior to reaching the fuel injection system, protecting the engine’s fuel system from costly and premature failure. Detailed teardown and rebuild instructions are also included with this kit.
I replaced the RK12963 fuel filter assembly with a Racor 700 series. Both were easily done by FOT and were fairly inexpensive. A small plate was added as you can see in the second photo to provide adequate clearance but other than that it was pretty much a direct replacement.
