I will check the anti-syphon / fuel shut off is all good. Fuel pump module was removed, cleaned and new filter installed. Loads of muck in fuel pump inlet screen, fuel system now clean and performance has improved.
I also read in the manual that the fuel pressure is meant to be 25psi, although I have measured this at ignition, idle, and up to 2000 rpm and it holds 25 psi.
Because of the inherrant risk of holding a fuel pressure guage on the motor at full throttle on open water I have not done so but will be installing a fixed guage (and then removing it) for a test. The PO I believe turned the screw on the bottom of the pressure regulator out by 3 turns (because of a previous over fueling issue) so I might screw this back in as well.

The list of parts was either checked / repaired or replaced. ( not all replaced) This was meant to give a little history so those more experienced than me can see what has been done so far and provide me with addidtional valuable info... Which is excatly what you have done. Thanks!!!
What manual? We were told the pressure should be 30 pounds. The regulator isn't user-adjustable. It's possible to adjust it, but it's NOT supposed to be without doing it without the proper procedures.
