My good friend in Hungary picked up a 2007 150 hp Verado with 125 hours for almost nothing as the prior owner was quite frustrated with it. My friend is a remarkable motor mechanic, but this is the first outboard he has owned. Here are my questions:
 - He has assessed it have a fuel pump issue, so are there any suggestions as to what to check and/or go ahead and replace?
 - I understand there are 3 "versions" of this motor, the first version to have issues with (i) the lower units tearing up, and (ii) the supercharger/turbocharger overheating, and (iii) fuel system issues related to ethanol content. Can anyone confirm or comment on this?
 - related to the "3 versions" thing, when I look at parts catalogs, it looks like there are really 3 version manufactured in the U.S., and 3 manufactured in Belgium. Am I reading this correctly?
 - Anything else we should be on the lookout for?

There is a lot of information here in the library on the ethanol issue, after reading all you can repost with a specific question as to the problem you are experiencing so we can help. As for the other two issues you are referring to, they are not as common as you think and with a little research you will educate yourself...Chico...

 None of that info is correct.... Only issue has been with the fuel floats on the early 07 and below Gen 1 motors.....Easy fix. replace float switch..Absolutely  no issues with lower units or superchargers....I do have an issue with a motor thats 12 yrs. old and has only 125 hrs. on it.
