For what it's worth....i replaced my fuel pump last summer. I assumed
original wasn't around any longer and so, upon recommendation of a
mechanic I know, located and entirely new FP outside the engine
compartment against the back transom. When you do this you can get a
better fuel pump, and the thing isn't bolted right to the engine block
like the original (always seemed weird)
