Pick up a Fact gold. You can get them at napa that's the pump you need for your set up. Get the low volume pump it is red and gold you will be happy with that for shore and it has a built in screen they last a long time. About 150 bucks butt worth every penny. Hope this helps.

FYI Aircraft Spruce beats that price by at least $50

If you don't have time to do it right the first time ,
Where are you going to get the time to do it a second time?

Uncle catfish. ....do you bypass the mechanical pump and run that pump direct to the carb or tie it in before the mechanical pump so it feeds the mechanical pump?

Br549.....that's the pump we are running , the slant six pump....doesn't seem to be quite enough the pump we got I think 5.5 psi at 23 gph.....i think the gpu calls for 7 psi if i have read correctly...dont know much about these motors.

Hillbilly,
I don't how much psi's, that's something I'm going to find out thou. But the fuel pump pulls it from the tank thru a racor fuel filter, and pumps it to a holley 500 with stock jets .073 .

Remove the mechanical pump and make a cover plate. Go electric all the way can't go wrong. Won't hurt to keep a cheep back up pump in the boat for back up. Good luck.
