Re: Fuel Lift Pump Questions

Yup, that looks like an electric fuel lift pump.
2 things: 1st: I would strongly suggest that you re-label that switch to indicate the proper device that it powers; and 2nd: You can bleed that fuel filter (and the lift pump/hoses) via the vent screw on top of the filter assembly (it looks like a bolt) - just make sure to have two people (one to operate the switch and shut it off when you get fuel out the vent) and have a drip pan / diapers to catch any fuel spilled in the process. Best to keep the fuel OUT of the bilge!
