I posted a question weeks ago about my 1985 Force OB that boggs down at WOT. This problem seems to be getting worse and I can't determine what's causing it. Now, the engine just stalls out and it happens at various speeds - seems to be running out of fuel. If I sit in the back and continuously squeeze the bulb, the motor does okay. This makes me think the fuel pump is bad. My question is: being an 2 stroke outboard engine, can I put an inline-electronic fuel pump on this to see if that addresses the issue? Will it be okay to bypass the diaphram pump altogether?
