Yeah they are against it... but it was missing screws that caused the issue... replacing the assembly requires all screws to be replaced... I read of many who replaced pump in assembly with no issues....

Terrible day right off the trailer & boom fuel pump shorted out & blew up luckily nobody was hurt. Not looking good damage wise but I guess that's why we pay insurance
Holly $#(% Drake. Sorry dude. Hope your insurance covers it and your not off the water for long. That really sucks.

Yes it was the MC dealer. I'm waiting on the insurance to contact me. They are already trying to blame it on something else. They started working on it the day I dropped it off called me and told me they had it fixed I could come run it for the weekend. This was after I told them to not touch it until insurance contacted them so I'm sure we are gonna have issues I made them take all the new wiring off they also said they wouldn't fix the floor panel because it couldn't be seen. I can only imagine how this is gonna go.

Sorry for all this but glad that you and your family are safe...now.
However,i really think your story deserve its own thread.
Missing bolts on the fuel pump unit is something that could EASILY happen again due to so many of them failing.
You could save someones life just by your story having its own thread instead of being hide in the random picture thread...It s a real safety issue on a boat when fuel leak!!!(Like you don t know that!)
My .02 cents.
Again ,glad you are OK!
