My saltwater fishing buddy tells me his 90hp 1991 Johnson (VRO) won't run without squeezing the fuel bulb continually. He also tells me a 16 gauge wire came off the engine ( the crimp on ring terminal broke). This all happened after he changed the fuel filter with a new one, and he says fuel readily flows past the filter when he squeezes the bulb. My question is this: Do these VRO fuel pumps need electrical power to operate and pump fuel? There appears to be some wires going into the pump from the pictures I have seen of it.
Thanks for any help,
