Any ideas??

Hi.
Wondering if anyone can analyse this picture and tell me:

1. what is the part that is circled in the picture?
2. Should there be a hose attached to this part?
3. This boat has no return hose....is it normal that this pump has been fitted to this boat?
4. Could this set be dangerous? Could this circled part be leaking fumes?
5. Has anyone seen this type of pump before? Is it an MC part?
Really appreciate any help.

I am assuming that is some sort of vent or something along those lines. looks like you got a lot of tubing and hose to replace though.

Best of luck.

You don't mention the boat, however looks like the fuel Cell & fuel pump assembly.

No fuel line attached in your pic, does the boat run? has someone installed a separate/different fuel cell/tank?

The boat was running with this set up. But I'm pretty sure that there should be a fuel line attached.
The boat blew up and burst into flames despite running the blower etc up and I'm wondering if this could be where there fumes came from.???
I'm trying to figure out if at some point the wrong fuel pump was fitted. Looks to me like a pump that should have a return hose. It's on a 2007 Vortex 6l 400hp engine.

Ask someone to post a pic of their gas tank...... or go look under a fuel pump threads there's tons of pics. I'm guessing its a vent line that should have a hose running to the outside of the boat.

I hope no one was hurt.

Maybe a mod could change the title of this thread to something remotely descriptive?

You should have three lines going into the fuel tank.

Fuel in - the line from the gas cap into the tank.
Fuel line out - It's the orange line and will be attached to the fuel pump.
Vent Line - Going back to somewhere around the gas cap.

That may of been a reaction (blowing up) but it's not the cause.

vent return line and yes that could very well been the culprit to the fire, however you'd need a spark to ignite the fumes so theres more than one single issue
