I have a 6.0LS in my jet boat that has a belly tank. Ive tried several different electric fuel pumps with varying degrees of success. The electrics work fine when primed, but they are a real pain to get primed if you run out of/low on gas or if the boat has sat for more than a day. When I ran SBC or BBC w/ mechanical pump in this boat I never had a problem.
So my question is: will a belt drive fuel pump like aeromotive 17140 draw fuel from below as well as a standard mechanical diaphragm pump? Are there any pitfalls to running a belt driven fuel pump? I would really hate to drop $500 and still have the same problems. Any better ideas?
