If someone wants the ECM to be fully tested, I would think it could be sent to Indmar. As far as the problems this boat is exhibiting, the voltage drop across the ECT should be checked- there's a...

Go to a car audio/alarm shop for the parts- they all use them.

If Parts Express ships to your location, they have all of these parts, too.

Sorry, I thought you had the in-tank pump. Your boat should have two filters, but I don't remember the number for both. IIRC, GF-626 is the one on the engine.

Have you checked for spark on all of the plug wires? Do that. If you see the timing light flash on all of the wires, check spark intensity on all of the plugs.

Where did it break? If it broke at the strut, I would bet that it was never aligned, or if it was, it wasn't tightened in place.

Show photos, if possible- can't even guess why without knowing more.
