    Well, vapor lock was once a good guess, as my 1.8L NA engine has the metal fuel rail. However, newer (todays) models now have plastic components (rail & intake manifold) yet still exhibit this random...

    Agreed. The Waverunner hull plugs are likely not like a typical boat application. A boat plug will usually drain the entire bilge... Waverunner plugs seem to serve only as a backup safety device as...

    Best way is to just pull the pump, and examine it on the bench. It should have no slop or play and turn freely without "feeling" any grinding sensations as you hand-turn it back-n-forth.
