boat won't start.
I’ve read several of the posts on fuel pumps.
I hear no noise at the pump, have voltage to the pump.
Just a drop of fuel at the carb.
Are there any tests that I can run before I pull the pump?
AND, it the 4th week end

You could rent a fuel pressure tester from autozone.Plug it into the fuel rail.This will tell you if the fuel pump is bad.

I guess we could all keep guessing at what engine you do have, but the bottom line is that you need to check your fuel pressure at the delivery point at key-on. If the pump is getting 12 volts and powering up and you have no pressure, your pump is shot.

On the road at 5:00 am. 210 miles to my Mastercraft Dealer. In the shop at 8:30 am. One hour to replace the Fuel Pump. Back home on the Lake at 3:00 pm.

You could have save 200 miles and about 500$ by doing a search on fuel pump replacement right here on Team Talk...:o

Agreed with above but guy is happy. Sometimes its easier and less stressful to have a qualified mechanic do the work. Sometimes not. Glad he got his issue resolved. As satisfying as replacing the fuel pump yourself is...the smell of gas almost isn't worth it.

Yes, I know and I could have done the repair myself. But, for some in my skiing family, there is only 3 weeks left of skiing. So, I decided to have the dealer do the work. If there was another problem and not the pump, he could repair it.

I totally agreee:the important is to be back on the water ASAP!
I just get grumpy every time i read about another fuel pump failure and the price of the replacement unit!
The numbers of failures is a joke...
