Hi, I work at a marina in Acworth, Georgia. The 2010 70 hp mercury outboard powers a 2010 24 foot bentley pontoon boat. Upon selling the boat, we took the boat on a test drive. Boat fired righht up, ran perfect for about 10 minutes then acted like it was starving for fuel. Cleaned carbs, new fuel filter,didnt solve the issue. We now have a fuel pump assembly ordered that we have been waiting on for 2 months. Part # is 8m0130897. Im honestly not even sure if this is just a guess on whats wrong or what. Part is nearly $1000 bucks. Any ideas?
