  • Switching VRO pump with standard pump

    The motor already had the oil disconnected from the VRO by the original owner and I think it needs to be replaced can I used a standard Style fuel pump non electric its a 1996 ocean runner 200 thanks.

    To replace the vro fuel pump and keep up with fuel demand for the v6 looper you will need 2 standard pumps in series.

    There are several available sources for a unit that is already 2 pumps combined.

    Here's one example

        Code:
        This VRO system conversion non-oiling fuel pump for 90hp-250hp Johnson & Evinrude Outboard motors,fits V6 Crossflow and Looper engines but DOES NOT fit 60 degrees applications.
        Are there any that will fit the 60 degree Johnsons?

        My pump has alot of hours on it.

          So the one that was recommended on the first post will fit with little modifications its supper tight but can be done I just did mine today. My cowling closed fine you just cant straight bolt on the pump. The bracket will need to be removed and new holes drilled to mount but if you arent super crazy about it you can use some type of fasteners to secure it to the bracket.

              I have a N.O.S. VRO pump that I had bought for a 200 HP Looper.

              Brand new - never installed. Found a good used Etec & sold the Looper.
