    Default Engine Stalling.

    I have a 19 ft Jet Boat with a 454 BBC and a Berkely 12 JC pump. I have been running the boat with an Holly Electric fuel pump. Fuel water separator before it. The boat was running fine when I put it up for the winter.
    Now after running it for a few miles up river it is stalling like fuel starvation.
    So this morning I changed the cap, rotor, coil and ignition module to rule out electronic. It would not start. Then I changed the carb to a Holley 750 double pumper from a Holly 750 Vacuum secondary. The boat started right up and ran like a bat out of hell. Then after sitting for awhile on the sand we ran up river about 8 miles. Turned around and the boat stalled again. Could not keep it running just sputtering.
    I even installed new marine grade fuel lines from the tank to the separator a few weeks ago. I'm starting to lean towards a bad electric fuel pump.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    If you're sure it's the fuel pump,Get a Holley Black they work well.

    I'm looking at this kit because looking at the current set up it does not have the safety pressure switch shutoff. Whoever set the up also put in a non marine Holly Red fuel pump. I am going to look at the fuel tank pickups as well. Not sure were to buy them. I have 2 10 gallon cylinder style tanks in the back of the boat on each side.
