    I have a 2003 270 Sundeck that quit while idling around. I got towed in and put it up on my lift. Going through the fuel system I replaced the filter before the low pressure pump, the water separator filter, check the operation of the fuel shut-off valve and still no fuel rail pressure. Looking down at the high pressure pump I started taking out the engine cowling and figuring how to get my hands on the fuel pump plug. It was a bitch to get apart but finally I prayed it apart. The ground wire in the plug was all melted. I removed the plugs and wired straight through. Off course I worry that there is a problem which made the connector hot, but running it on the lift with water supplied for over 20 minutes and all is well. I’m going to sea trial it today.
    Here are some pics of melted plugs.
