Most likely leaking past the hose clamp at the hose to pump barb connection.

I see many people have been using the airtex E2044 (for MCX 350's). However I see that I am not the only one having problems holding pressure with this replacement.
I would agree that the one barb nipple sucks, and that my fuel line seems to slide pretty easy over the barb. Not really ideal when it needs to hold 55-60psi.

So my question is... is there another pump (ie. the AC Delco, Bosh...) that has 3 barbs like the carter pump?

I will not even consider putting a carter pump back in until one of these other pumps fail.

I can't get the old black hose off the old pump - any tips from the pro's besides cutting it?

Do NOT cut it! I presume you are referring to the fuel line which requires a specific tool in order to release the clip from the nipple! Most hardware stores have the tool.

Tested out my fuel pump replacement and so far so good. Here are my notes from the job:

- lots of gas - bucket is a necessity
- our gas line was rock hard - not crimped but impossible to get off the pump and the regulator nipple
- the regulator nipple was a different size that the pump nipple. I could have used a smaller clamp for the regulator (used a 3/8 for the pump and it was perfect)
- do not pull on the hose to get it off the pressure regulator (top connection). I ended up slightly cracking mine.
- I put my clamps on as tight as I could. So far so good but I haven't left the boat for an hour and then tried to restart it.
- my fuel line from apeusa.com was black and not white like the picture showed - 5/16" X 8"
- I wrote up a DIY using the pictures from pg 1. Hope this helps people.

The black hose that connects to the filter, why are you calling that a by-pass hose? It appears to have a one way valve on it that would not allow fuel into it.

uh oh.....the by-pass line? Sounds like you are going to need some 30 weight ball bearings, 3 in 1 oil and some gauze pads.

By "gas line", do you mean the orange one? The line itself is Teflon, with a fiberglass sleeve, stainless braid, fiberglass sleeve and another stainless braid before the orange fire-resistant jacket.
