I have a pair of 2000 175 hp Fitch motors. The port side motor starts up and idles normally however after about 20 min running at about 3500 rpm. The water in fuel light comes on. Then the motors starts running roughly and a loss of power occurs. I have replaced the Fuel filter and the problem goes away for a little while, but then start up again. The motor also does not start up immediately after the problem occurs I have to wait for a few minutes to start it up again. Any ideas to the issue?

Hello If there is no water in fuel check the electrical probe that sits inside fuel filter for short.you can also disconnect wire that goes to filter housing for testing
