Tested it - it did not spin up using plug on old pump that works... Rock Auto Exchanging ... I would test pump... If you got one - I think they are new old stock.

The one I bought off eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/321041093010?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649) came Friday. It says:
962 ↑ PFI - HIGH PRESSURE
2366C Made in USA

I assume 2366C is a manufacturing date/lot code.

Darn defective pump actually blew fuse - "won't say what my first words were...when the old pump would not prime up... ;) " lol ... strange.... Guess I will test replacement as well... luckily don't need a new pump - was just a good back up idea... :)

Maybe the plug is reversed on that model pump.

Mike,

Would this pump work for my 02 x star with 330 Ltr? My boat is in storage so I can't look at what I have. This is the first boat I have had with fuel injection, it sounds like its a good idea to have a spare pump.

Thanks

if you don't have an in-tank fuel pump - I believe yes but I am not sure

Mike, how about for a '96 LT1? Looks like the same pump.

I may have found my own answer, looks like this part number is for TBI engines, operating btw 25-35 psi fuel, while the LT1 is an MPI, and needs fuel pressures btw 50-60 psi, requiring a different pump (Carter 60962).

How do you test it? Did you just disconnect the wiring from your installed pump, connect it to the new pump and turn the boat key to the 'on' position?
BTW, this pump is now selling for just under $33.

Hey Mike - BarefootWt here on this thread now. I have been on the phone with Indmar and inboardonline and looking at the Rock Auto web site. Are you saying the P60987 is a substitute for the P60962 (no longer available)? I spoke with someone who said that "all the pumps that look the same and fit this application) are basically the same and put out well above 40 PSI (like up to 90) and it is the pressure regulator that brings the pressure down to what we need (per my owners manual 30-45 PSI)? What a maze of "options and confusion" :-)

It is.. I am not sure that the P60987 will work. I boat one and it will states 25psi on the pump. I have not gotten any feedback from anyone who bought the P60987 for an LT1 - that's why I won't say it works.

All I know is that P60962 was called out for the MPI and the other for TBI.

http://www.fme-cat.com/MarineApplication.aspx?bid=298&make=GMC&model=All%20Models&ptype=Marine%20Fuel%20Pumps

not sure why they would have 2 pumps.. $32 not a bad gamble - unless the engraving on the P60987 means 25 PSI and greater.

I just don't want to recommend something and be wrong.

this link says all models... $32 not a bad gamble if it works... hit the right arrow - to see application

Hey Mike - just got my P60987 from Rock Auto and it has markings that say TBI 25 PSI max (I see you had the same experience before on a different thread). This does not make sense given Carter engineer said this part is rated 40-57 PSI. I am calling them back first thing in am before I install and own it. In the other thread I think you said you went to e-bay and got different part number, in that the P60987 was wired differently as well and did not fire up? I have a backup 556014 coming in from Inboardonline so if needed that is my backup plan/approach.
