Post Fuel pump for outboard???
My 35 briggs can't carry the load I need it to right now, so I've decided to pull my 2 stroke 90 yamaha off my bowfishing boat, add a tiller handle and run it until the water falls out. I am going to put the fuel tank in the front against the bulkhead. Will I need to run a fuel pump, or will the outboard pull the fuel through the 18 or so feet of line?

I think it would work. If not go get a 2-3lbs pump

No fuel pump needed. Ive been running 20 foot boats with the tank in the front for years with outboards and never needed a fuel pump on either. You will be good to go.
