    Repowering boat

    Swapping out 1993 260 for a 2018 racing 300 optimax. What fuel pump should I use,we have a Weldon pump in boat now, should it be swapped out for lower pressure pump or put a regulator in ?

    You don't need an electric pump or a reg. The motor has a pulse pump and an electric pump built into the VST. Just run a fuel line with a bulb from tank to engine

    Also Mercury does not recommend a fuel filter before going to engine
