Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

The fuel pump on the engine bolts to the side of the block. All you need to do to replace it is to remove the fuel line then unbolt the pump, clean the gasket surface then install a new gasket and the new pump. Install the fuel line to the pump and you are done.

Sorry notdetailed enough. The problem is the location. Right behind the engine mount. Very difficult spot to ge tto. Plus hardly any room to work. Do I remove back seat? Do I need to remove manifold? Do I need to remove engine?
Your answer is much to brief.

To gain the access it may be needed to remove the rear seat of the boat, this is sort of common on the inboard engine to get access to various points on the engine.
