I don't know about other NAPA dealers but the one here in Waukegan has a
cross reference manual for OMC to NAPA. It's not on his computer it's one of
those old fashioned books where you look things up. He doesn't have any of
it in stock but gets engine parts in two to three days.

Possible other NAPA dealers have the same book but don't know it. Make
friends with your NAPA dealer and maybe he'll see if he can find it.

One other note on electric pumps it's important to get one that's Coast
Guard approved. They aren't cheap but on Lake Michigan here in Illinois they
(the Sheriff's Dept and CG) randomly inspect boats and issue tickets. If a
non approved pump fails it can siphon fuel into your bilge.
