A customer told me that his pump went out. I knew nothing about a pump in a 28. This company has only made boats since 2003 and we have few records about earlier boat models.
Where is the pump located?
Thanks

My pump is located in the engine compartment. Above the aft end of the main fuel tank. And slightly to port. The supply hose comes from forward along the port side under the galley and through the aft bulkhead. The short discharge hose is routed into a stainless steel T thats in the main fuel fill hose. There is also another fitting in that T fitting for the engine return lines. I can get pics to you if needed as I’m rewiring everything in the engine compartment right now.

I'll be back at the boat today - it's still in my shop and the engine compartment is in a bit of an uproar right now - but I'll do my best!
Maybe tonight for pics...

will due and thanks
i have several different projects going on in the engine compartment - so looks kinda messy. And the fuel transfer pump isn’t wired in yet.
but this seems to be the factory location . The aluminum tube with the 90 in it is the tank fill pipe. To port of that is a insert (manifold) in the fill line with engine return lines and the fuel transfer line from the pump. Again, has to be factory. No way to get that forward tank in after boat is put together.

Appreciate the pics. I won't be able to check until end of week or so (trailer shop). Don't know if electrical or mechanical problem.
