Fuel Line Routing 2001 Evinrude 50 4-stroke = small filter line

The engine is the 2001 50hp 4 stroke.

 

There is a thin fuel line from the top of the engine (fuel pump?) that circles to the back of the engine and then low until it has a small disc filter and about 5 inches of black plastic hose. The end with the filter came off its connector at some point and it leaking fuel, a strong stream when I squeeze the gas tank line bulb. Does anyone know where that free end, the one with the disc filter, connects? No diagram I can find has that info, nor the Climer manual.

 

I spent a couple hours looks for an open connector without luck. Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Fuel Line Routing 2001 Evinrude 50 4-stroke = small filter line

Thank you for the link, but that is the one I looked at first (at Evinrude factory parts). If you go to the fuel pump and separator page and find #28 you will see it deadends. That is the end I need to find the connector for on the engine. There is no schematic or exploded drawing I found yet that has where #28 connects.

 

Thanks anyway!

Even a service manual does not show all the fuel lines or how they are routed.  If you cannot find where it attaches, chances are it is behind the intake manifold. Those rebadged motors are not the easiest to service. They were made by Suzuki back then.

I am hoping someone has some knowledge of this hookup. Even a service tech needs to have a pic to fix this problem if I take it in for service, right?

Not necessarily, a tech should be able to find a disconnected fuel component, but may have to disassemble things for access.
