Should be the Delco EP356, available on Amazon. There are other brands, but Delco is made by Walbro, which I believe to be the best pump on the market. Do yourself a favor and buy the Napa 1' $15 hose listed on the other thread.

It looks like the same pump that I have in my 230 Maristar, 330 hp. I purchased (and returned) several of the pumps listed in the fuel pump thread. Each of the pumps was physically smaller and I was not comfortable trying to use the smaller pumps. I ended up buy a new fuel cell from Mastercraft. In the end, it wasn't my fuel pump but the crank position sensor. I will be interested to see if you can locate the correct pump.

I just went through the exact same thing!

What were the symptoms that caused you to replace your fuel pump?

I dont have $500 for a new unit from Mastercraft!

The Delco one is the only one I have not had my hands on. What parts stores carry them?

I have an 06 X2 (mcx) and my pump failed over labor day. I bought the Airtex2065 from autozone ($73) and worked like a charm.....I cross ref'd it from the delco ep356....Not sure if its the same for you 330hp though it looks similar. It only took about 1.5hrs of labor to remove and install.

I had the same issue. Could not find a replacement for this Carter pump. All the others are too short, had to but the complete unit. Rambo marine $485. However, don't think it was the pump after all.

Check your transmission cooler water inlet hose for debris. Cleaned that out and the boat has never run better.

Would a clogged transmission cooler cause poor driveability and intermittent power loss?

Certainly caused intermittent loss of power starting at 4000, then 3000, then 2000 rpm and finally at idle. Engine would just start dropping rpms and finally dying completely. After cleaning the cooler inlet, runs better than ever.

Not sure how an overheating transmission tells the engine to shut down but that's what appeared to have happened.

BTW - I've been searching this past week for this size Carter pump and can not find a thing.
