New ACS high pressure gascolator. Lighter weight and simpler design than the ACS "classic" gascolator. Bailwire and attaching hardware have been eliminated. Threaded collar secures bowl to top. Tested to 50lbs. Bowl is cadmium plated and top and collar are anodized for corrosion protection. Top has 1/4" pipe ports for 3/8" fuel line and one 1/8" pipe port for primer fitting.
Made in USA
very well made and affordable
Nice compact gascolator, good quality of construction. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is it would be better if it had a way to safety wire the bowl locking ring.
Very high quality fit and finish. I would have given 5 stars but the design provides no positive provisions for mounting it. Other than suspending it from the fittings (generally a poor way to go) theres no threaded bosses or tabs to attach a good mount to.
