2004 Mastercraft x10 Fuel Pump

I'm sure there are multiple threads about this but searching wasn't fruitful. Moderators please close thread and link to a similar one if exists.

I own a 2004 MC x10 with MCX 350 engine (see pictures). I can provide more pictures if needed. Seems like the fuel pump is starting to give. It happened twice that the engine just died on me and both times the mechanic was able to get the pump started saying it is giving signs of an upcoming failure. This labor day weekend it happened again and i would like to replace it and not deal with the issue again. After the second fix i was told to keep the gas tank full which i did but it had no effect.

After reading many threads it seems like this is a popular issue with MC boats. Can anyone direct me to an affordable long lasting solution for this? See pictures attached, thank you very much for any help and suggestions.

Was hoping for a little more detailed response... Type of an aftermarket pump, a better solution.

Glad you found my post entertaining.

While you're at it, you may want to replace the filter as well: http://www.skidim.com/FUEL-FILTER-IN...ctinfo/155101/

And don't forget step #1: disconnect the battery

Installation was a success, boat started right up. Planing on getting it in the water this weekend to fully test it.

Thank you!!!!

How did you get that fuel hose back on? I had a tough go of it but got it on enough to last a full season...
