I have been following this thread with interest because when I purchased my 31 (#9) there was no electric fuel pump installed, and the engine runs fine. But in one of the lockers I found a brand new marine electric fuel pump , still in the box. Going to the engine compartment I find a block with mounting bolts which fit the fuel pump and wires capped off terminating there (BTW it is AFTER the Racor).
My question is, given that the pump is free, in the experience of those with electric fuel pumps, would you recommend that I go ahead and finish the installation that the PO obviously either aborted or ran out of time to do?
I would use it only for bleeding purposes, with a switch right by the pump. I have not found the little finger pump to be very effective so my inclination is to install it.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
