    Default 1989 70hp Evinrude vro conversion to standard fuel pump

    I have my vro bypassed and now having a fuel issue which I believe the pump went out I'm wanting to convert over to a standard fuel pump using brp#0385784 has anyone done this? If so what all has to be done?

    I would use the pump off a 1989 65 hp commercial model.-----Fuel into filter cap.---------Remove pulse limiter and install fitting for a pulse hose.------Fuel out to the carburetors.---------Fabricate a bracket to hold the pump.

    The pulse limiter that is ran with a separate hose to Port side of motor coming from vro with a valve for manual fuel flow or full run correct?

    I am not sure what post # 3 is talking about, not at all.-------Are you confusing the fuel primer valve ( red lever thingy ) for starting with the pulse limiter that is protection / flow fuse for the VRO fuel pump ?-----------------The electric primer is not touched / modified when you install a conventional pump.

    I'm sorry I think I know what your talking about now. Your talking about on the fuel pump you told me to use remove the pulse limiter from that and install and pulse hose connector ?
