Re: Fuel in oil - where to start?

Get the right fuel pump for your engine. Find the proper psi range for fuel delivery to your engine.
I prefer the mechanical fuel pump for my gasoline Atomic 4 but they sell an electric pump that replaces the mechanical one: Moyer Marine Atomic 4 Engine Rebuilding and Parts
I just like the simplicity of the mechanical pump: it only pumps when the engine is turning. The electrical pump needs an oil pressure sensor switch which is just something else that can fail.
