Well, you can not worry about the alum fin on the bottom of the motor. Al the is is a trim tab. Its for fine tuning you steering. It sounds like a similer problem that I had this spring. It turned out to be a bad fuel pump diaphram. It was an easy fix and I bought the new daipharm and gasket kit at Napa. Follow your fuel lines past the in line filter to where they Fork. That housing is the fuel pump. There should be 3 bolts that hold it on. Take a look at rubber diaphram inside. Good Luck
