    The VRO oil tank a pick up assembly for the above outboard was flooded with water and some gas, ( the previous owner left the boat out in the rain for a month with the plug in). Two questions, first do I need to replace the pick up assembly, and second, is there any reason I can't buy a portable gas tank and new hose and bypass the VRO system so I can use the boat until its fixed, mixing the fuel manually? Thanks in advance.
