Manual to Electric Fuel Pump

I have a 1976 Islander 30 with an atomic 4 gas engine. I have the old manual gas fuel pump and want to convert to the electric fuel pump. I went to a boat dealer in Texas who wanted about $247.00 for the conversion kit. That seemed awfully high in price. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I would go about seeking a less expensive electric fuel kit.
Also I have gas coming out of the the raw water coolant thus discharging gas into the water when the engine is running. I was told that it could be a valve not firing however I have check and all valves are firing. Any suggestions as to why the gas would be coming out of the raw water coolant into the water.

Manual to Electric Fuel Pump

Electronic fuel pump: indigoelectonics.com or moyermarine.com Dont forget to add a ''safety switch'' to the oil pressure sender so that the engine will cut-out if the oil pressure drops - so you dont fill the bilge with raw gasoline.

Since the carburator is an updraft (but does has a suction port to take ''drips'' in the carb entry), you progbably have a cylinder that is misfiring or not firing at all. An A4 will run smooth firing on just 3 cylinders.

Go to www.moyermarine.com and join the ''forum''

I went to a NAPA parts store and bought an electric fuel pump for $36.00. Used to prime my 4-108 diesel. It delivers 5psi and seems to work fine. It also come with an inline fuse.
