Sounds like I have the same setup as Steve: Racor, then electric fuel pump, then manual pump on the engine itself, then fuel filter. When I turn the key, the pump kicks in. I can use it to bleed the system. I cannot tell any difference between using the manual or electric pump to bleed the system (except electric makes a mess). On a recent trip my Engine stopped running. I was in big waves so thought it was a clogged filter. After changing both filters, still no love. I realized it was a bad electric fuel pump. I replaced it with a new (much bigger, hope that is OK!) one.
What is the purpose of this pump? I thought it was required, but I noticed many other installs do not have a similar pump.
