MaiTide has been running well for 4 plus years until last month. Now Stb. engine turns over well but does not start. Replaced coil. Want to run some checks on fuel system, but don't know where the fuel pumps are located. Any suggestions? Thanks
Engine fired right up after adjusting cap contact point inside distributor. Thanks to all for help. Glad I didnt have pull any !@%&*ing fuel pumps.
Captain Williams ........ If you have the original fuel tanks the anti -siphon setup design is inside the fuel tank . It is a .007 size brass carb jet screwed into the fuel line assembly that works perfect with no ball / spring design to clog . If you convert to electric fuel pumps you must block off / remove that assembly or you will have fuel starvation issues / lean condition .

Jerry, glad to hear you did not have to replace fuel pumps but remember to tap the weep holes on both pumps (can be done while pumps are on engines) and screw in a hose barb. Run fuel line from barbs up to your carburetors to insure you have no leaking gas or gas mist going into your bilge when your diaphragms do eventually fail.

Again thanks to all who helped solve this ignition problem. Turns out I was wrong for choosing fuel over fire in solving. And thanks to Tim and Dave for the insight on fuel (anti siphon and weep) on the fuel side.
