Evinrude 150 V6 Electric Fuel Pump Install

Well It is time for another Evinrude outboard engine repair. The auxiliary electric fuel pump stopped working on my 1988 Evinrude 150 V6 outboard. After further examination I found out that the electric fuel pump on the boat at the time is an Edelbrock electric fuel pump.

I go a little deeper below on where to and which pump and inline filter to purchase for your Evinrude 150 V6.
















Electric Fuel Pump

The Electric Fuel Pump for your Evinrude 150 V6 outboard that I recommend is the Edelbrock Universal Micro Electric Fuel Pump. 4-7 PSI this is perfect for this application. Link here to Edelbrock part on Summit website https://bit.ly/3O7Px1J I was limited on my funds so I went to Amazon an purchased this one

https://amzn.to/3o41mv0 it is rated to 3-6 PSI and cost 13 dollars.


Inline Fuel Filter



The Inline Fuel Filter I recommend is a Wix 33002. This one was around 6 dollars and well worth it. I would purchase another and change it every year. Do not purchase a lawnmower inline fuel filter, it will not work.

This is pretty much self explanatory. Cut your hose the length to fit in desired fuel line location and tighten hose clamps. Make sure your arrows on Electric Fuel Pump align with the arrow on the Fuel Filter.


The Install

Well we have made it to the easy part other than having to stand on your head to attach it to the fuel line. This is just a rough install picture. As you can see at the top of the Inline fuel filter the hose is not pushed all the way down. Do not make this mistake.

  1. Tighten 3/8 inch hose clamps

  2. Attach the Red and Black Wires to existing wires or directly to starting battery. On the fuel pump I installed there was a white connecter on the end of wires. I cut the connector off to make a wire to wire connection. I recommend installing an inline fuse on the red wire Here is one from Amazon https://amzn.to/3o08KaQ

  3. I recommend priming the electric fuel pump and line before trying to start. See below.














Priming Electric Pump And Fuel Line

Fuel Rail Location On 1988 Evinrude 150 V6

The Fuel Rail on the 1988 Evinrude 150 V6 is located on the left side of the outboard when you are standing behind it. It is circled in blue in the picture. Locate where the fuel line (circled in red) attaches to the fuel rail. Remove fuel line from fuel rail. Be real careful doing this, the fuel rail becomes brittle over time and will easily break. Power up the Electric Fuel Pump and let run until you have a consistent stream of clean fuel coming out of fuel line. Reattach line and start your outboard engine.




Make sure to run your outboard engine a few minutes to ensure the Electric Fuel Pump is pumping enough fuel to keep engine running. For some reason the existing fuel pump on these outboard engines do not pump enough fuel to keep it running and these external pumps are needed.
