I have a 2005 Ski Nautique 196. Recently the leads into the top of my FCC developed a major fuel leak. I read the notice recently from PCM about this and ordered the replacement part. I installed the replacement part and a new fuel filter and re-installed the canister. Now the boat won't crank. I have checked the leads multiple times and everything appears to be connected. It feels like both the lower pump and the canister vibrate when I use the switch to prime the fuel system. Unfortunately, there is no fuel in the FCC after priming as if the lower pump is no longer working. Seems odd that the lower pump would suddenly fail at the same time. Is there a chance that running it with a leak for a short period of time has created some type of air lock? Would manually filling the canister with fuel and cranking the engine possible fix the problem or should I not do that?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
