I used the crimp style clamps as I could not find small enough screw type.

I may be mistaken BUT i think that I have not heard of ANY failures of the pumps that have been replaced by aftermarket pumps.....
There have been many repeated failures of people who have replaced the entire fuel module (to the tune of about $500) with the mastercraft/carter part......

I'm a month into my airtex 2065 on my mcx and not an issue...very happy. I have my airtex 2044 as a spare in my glove box along with the correct allen key.

yes, i ordered the 8in'er along a few stainless clamps and then the airtex 2044 and fuel line disconnect tool from amazon. i have not had to use it yet, so can't comment on whether the fuel line from APE will fit or not, but it should. i just wanted to have a repair kit in the boat for roadtrips.

I just got burned on a houseboat trip to shasta where my 2002 MC Prostar 209 quit working.......fuel pump. It ruined the whole trip of a lifetime. The boat ran perfect up until that very moment. I ran the tank down on purpose prior to the trip so I wouldn't have to tow all that weight around.......bad move? I just got a new pump installed. The part was $673. Did I get ripped? I have replaced the shower pump, heater core, fuel pump, steering cable, and only have 196 hours on the boat. Maybe the Nautique was the way to go???

Thanks for the awesome post Boofer. I learned a lot.

Bs

Is it just me, or is it complete BS that we have to find a place to store extra parts in our boats so that not if, but when they fall apart we can fix them. Maybe MC should design a spare parts locker in the boat to accomodate this. The boats are great, but they cheap out on all the components to save money.....even though we pay a premium for the MC name!

The pump is 100 or less and takes about an hour and 2 beers so I say yes you took it dry on that repair.

Sorry about the trip but I bet a parts store within driving distance would have had a pump.
