they are putting a automotive fuel pump under the cowling instead of buying a oem fuel pump.

I am putting an electric pump on for 3 reasons. First one is I blew two motors when the VRO went out. I am not going to chance this motor with the same fate. Reason two is simplicity, once I hook it up I know it is working because I can hear the pump. Reason three, in the event that the pump stops working I can go to any Autozone and buy a replacement for $50, 7 days a week even in BFE



Pump is under the cowling in the same area as the stock pump, did the same procedure to a 1987 Evinrude and worked great, that motor has been sold and who knows how many hours are on it now still running strong.
