85 Windsor fuel pump

I am trying to find out if I need a special marine mechanical fuel pump on my 1985 Master Craft. 351 windsor or can I use a regular pump found at local auto zone.

Nothing special about fuel pump being marine, regular automotive fuel pump will work...

Thanks for your post. My boat sputters at top end and finally stalls out.

The fuel pump that came on my PMC 351 has dual diaphragms and a site tube that feeds back into the carb to give you a visual warning in case of a failure. I'm fairly sure this is not automotive.
