Propped correctly, I'd say 40 MPH @ Powell, 39 on the Wasatch front, 42 @ Mead and 37 @ Jordanelle.
Can't help you with what the correct prop is though.

Yes, it should hold pressure with key on. I tried a 2nd clamp when mine was leaking and it didn't help. The "check valve" is actually the pump itself - fuel can flow freely back through the...

Yep - most likely the hose clamp you installed on the barb on top of the fuel pump isn't tight enough to create a good seal. Rent a fuel pressure gauge. Hook it to the fitting on the fuel rail. ...

I see you are here in Utah. Perhaps you have a prop issue. Has the boat always been in Utah? That thing ought to hit the high 30's (if not 40) along the Wasatch Front, mid-thirties if you are on...

Let me guess: ordering a new UFP actuator to replace the Reliable one for which you can no longer get parts?

Other than the valve?
