Quick drain main passage plug
Anyone who has had to remove the main passage plug to drain their carburetor bowl will appreciate this helpful little plug! This modified stainless main passage plug makes it possible to drain all the fuel from the float chamber of the carburetor without removing the plug completely and risk dropping it into the bilge. By simply loosening the plug approximately 2 complete turns, all the fuel in the float chamber (approximately one shot glass full) will drain out into a small glass jar. The plugs are particularly useful anytime you wish to drain the fuel during troubleshooting, or when laying the boat up for any extended period of time. The added flange on the front face of the hex head is much friendlier to the fiber sealing washer than the original design, which required a lot of care to avoid damaging the washer when tightening the plug.

Emergency back-up fuel pump kit
When we get a call from someone who has just experienced an unexpected shutdown, the chances are at least 50/50 that the problem is somewhere within the fuel supply system. If you have an electric fuel pump, our backup fuel pump kit will not only replace a failed pump, it will also deal with a faulty oil pressure safety switch, or a blown fuse. The kit contains instructions and widgets to plumb the backup pump through the original pump, so if the original pump is still working, this configuration provides twice the amount of fuel pressure which will, in most cases, even offset the effects of a partial blockage and enable you to get to a safe harbor; all with the mere flip of a single switch.
