Ive got a 78 150hp Johnson that Im going through before an annual fishing trip south. This boat gets used twice a year and I like to make sure its in tip top condition before my trip. Having heard a few horror storries about the newer ethanol fuels, I pulled off a carb to get a peek inside and in the process I broke off the stem to the upper fuel pump. Where can I get a new fuel pump, and is the upper any different from the lower pump??
I also pulled the plugs (Champ UL77V)'s and there seemed to be a fair amount of grit across the face of the plugs, is this normal?? I run 93 ocatane and Klotz oil, last fill up was in July if that matters.
