Have an M 264 6 cylinder in a wood lobster boat that is leaking. The pump is similar to that in a Scout, but mounted bowl up instead of bowl down. Any ideas where to get a proper pump. If I go electric, any idea on psi or gph?

The truck pump should work ok.The bowl down pump has the advantage of traping water in the bottem of the bowl.The pump should make 6 to 10 psi.

The problem with the truck fuel pump is that in order to make the pump housing fit the block opening and bolts, it has to be installed bowl down (180 degreees from the boat pump) - but that then makes the arm, spring, plunger wanting to go down rather than up. First time the crank comes aroung in boat rotation will be exciting. International Palmer calls it an AC pump, but I can find no numbers on it or a replacement. I guess I will have to go electric - I have a 4-6 psi, 35 gph ( far more than I burn in an hour). Are you aware of many of these engines in operation, and anybody that works on them on MD (Harford Cnty)? Thanks for our your response.

Mike, I have been using an electric fuel pump on my Palmer P-60 for over 10 years. If your fuel tank is above the engine, as mine is, you can use a low pressure electric pump,1-2 PSI. If the tank is below the engine, perhaps a little higher pressure is ok. A standard electric fuel pump is available from any auto parts supplier and only costs around $15.00
