I picked up a used fuel pump for the same engine on ebay for $11 plus
shipping, so I think $300 for a new one sounds outrageous. I didn't
test the pump to see if it worked, but it supposedly came off a working
engine (boat was being parted out) and I'm guessing it's probably good.

My boat came with a Holly electric pump, but I bought the pump with the
intention of switching back to mechanical or a dual system for better

I don't see any cheap used ones on ebay right now, but it looks like this
new one is about $100.
If this Sierra 18-7278 really fits, any Sierra dealer should stock it and
I'm sure you can get a decent price. Installing a fuel pump is fairly
simple. This looks like a decent deal here
$60 plus $6 shipping and it's specced to fit your engine.
