    So I tested the fuel pressure at the rail and it was reading and holding at 50 psi. Then I removed the FPR (pictures attached) and installed the new Bosch FPR. I have not tested further because I ran out of daylight. any thoughts or comments on results so far or pictures of the original FPR that I removed? There does appear to be something (paint from internal guts of fuel pump?) on the screen. Thank you

    Thank you Soldier. Part arrived today, although I won’t be home to install it for a few days. I still plan to rent the fuel pressure test kit from Autozone, but for $27 I will probably install the new Bosch regardless of the test results. The FPR appears to be original. The boat and motor are 2004 with about 620 hours on motor.

    I pulled the vacuum line on the FPR. No liquid (fuel) or odor. I only removed the small vacuum line and then reinstalled it. There was no pressure in the vacuum line if that means anything. Any other suggestion of what I should check?

    Ok. Thank you. I found the fuel pressure regulator (VP part # 3858967) on amazon for about $27, made by Bosch. VP wants $256. eBay has it for$70 but amazon can deliver it my door tomorrow. Any concerns using aftermarket (Bosch)? It’s not painted red but for the price difference, who cares? Anything I should be aware of changing it out or anything I should change while I am at it that may help? Thank you

Throttle all the way forward with prop disengaged, very rough start and black (ish) smoke, fuel odor. Shut down, checked for water in fuel, found none. Replaced fuel filter, restarted w same results. Any ideas?Thank you.
