    I will be using a marine mechanical pump with the proper vent to the carb

    Yes, you can do a mechanical pump and in the end would be the most cost effective. No oil pump switch interlock / safety etc..
    Yes, I have a custom ground hydraulic roller cam and it has the pump lobe. I should be good to go.

    May i also add, i would go with a crank mounted raw pump.

    Wasn't asked but just sayin ... if this were my engine, that's what i would do.

    I agree with Chief on this. Not only would you need to open pad and tap holes to mount the pump I don’t think 5he new design has the eccentric that the pumps arm needs to ride on. The design you have has been around since 5ge mid 90s and works well as long as it’s maintained however maintance of 5e raw water pump is a PIA. Going to an electric pump is easy to do.

    Electric fuel pump would be the way to go.

    In my inexpert opinion.

    7.4 Mercruiser Raw Water Pump with Fuel Pump

    I am building a 496 Mercruiser with a Bravo and need to know if I can use a block mounted fuel pump? I want to eliminated the pump mounted to the belt driven raw water pump. I assume the reason for that was to use a mechanical pump on Gen V and VI big blocks that were not provisioned for a block mounted pump. My new engine is a MkIV and has the pad. I do not like the idea of such a small cavity for oil to lubricate the pump arm. Besides, the raw water mounted pumps are costly.
Working...
