New connector arrived and it does indeed allow fuel through unlike the WM connector.

Using the part# from the catalogue led me to the right connector. Suzuki has changed connector designs 3 times since the 80's so that could be it.

I would like to get a hydrofoil. Any brands you recommend? Is Stingray any good? I have 6 existing holes in my cavity plate from a Happy Troller and some other stuff that was removed. Any chance there's a standard hole dimension so I don't have to drill 4 additional holes?

AFAIK, no standard for bolt patterns.

I'd look at the Permatrim line if I had to replace mine (might anyway if I ever get some disposable income.)

They're distributed in the US by Shipyard Island Marina, I think.
