Fairline Vixen, petrol pump

Post by Snoozy77 » Thu Sep 13, 2018 7:38 pm

Hi, i’ve owned my Fairline Vixen for 6 months and its a good boat but something of a money pit, well what else to expect. The engine is the volvo penta aq130a and has been converted ted to unleaded petrol in the past. Ive had the engine serviced this season (new water pump, new alternator etc) but at sustained slow speeds (2-3mph) the engine seem risk of cutting out. Its done it couple times. So I wss thinking new petrol pump. Is this the right one??

Have you still got your Vixen ?

I also had the same problem and found out it was the coil needed replacing as it would cut out or try to cut out once he engine was warm .
