DeFever 48 - Trying to understand how my fuel system works


I think I have an intermittent fuel blockage. After the boat rolls I sometime experience a partial or complete power loss on the starboard side. I've inspected and replaced my primary filters and my Racor filter and they were clean. So I currently think it is debris at the tank pick up.

But it looks like my fuel from both sides seems to join and be distributed through a common manifold. Can you guys tell me it that is right?

I ask because if that is the case then the blockage has to be between the manifold and the engine and not in in the tank, because it could simply draw from the opposite side through the manifold, and the engine wouldn'd fuel starve.

Thanks in advance!
