I took off after a normal run-up and experienced no problems en route. I entered a downwind for runway at ZZZ and put my gear down abeam the numbers. I got a 3 green indication and then the engine stopped running. There was no indication of trouble prior to that. I was able to restart the engine by putting the auxiliary fuel pump on high but the engine ran rough. I was high on final approach but could not cut power until the landing was assured. I did not want to risk landing short. After porpoising a couple of times, I had a hard landing and the plane ran off the end of the runway. I swerved right to avoid hitting a fence. One main gear collapsed in the grass but there was no damage to propeller or nose gear. Both tanks were half full on landing. I did not want to attempt to go around with a questionable engine and student pilots in the pattern., I suspect the engine driven fuel pump failed but I won't know until after the insurance adjuster approves repairs. There was no contact and no injuries.

Title: B36 PLT HAS A MALFUNCTIONING ENG WHILE IN THE PATTERN, LANDS LONG, PORPOISES THE ACFT AND RUNS OFF THE RWY COLLAPSING A MAIN GEAR.
Narrative: I TOOK OFF AFTER A NORMAL RUN-UP AND EXPERIENCED NO PROBS ENRTE. I ENTERED A DOWNWIND FOR RWY AT ZZZ AND PUT MY GEAR DOWN ABEAM THE NUMBERS. I GOT A 3 GREEN INDICATION AND THEN THE ENG STOPPED RUNNING. THERE WAS NO INDICATION OF TROUBLE PRIOR TO THAT. I WAS ABLE TO RESTART THE ENG BY PUTTING THE AUX FUEL PUMP ON HIGH BUT THE ENG RAN ROUGH. I WAS HIGH ON FINAL APCH BUT COULD NOT CUT PWR UNTIL THE LNDG WAS ASSURED. I DID NOT WANT TO RISK LNDG SHORT. AFTER PORPOISING A COUPLE OF TIMES, I HAD A HARD LNDG AND THE PLANE RAN OFF THE END OF THE RWY. I SWERVED R TO AVOID HITTING A FENCE. ONE MAIN GEAR COLLAPSED IN THE GRASS BUT THERE WAS NO DAMAGE TO PROP OR NOSE GEAR. BOTH TANKS WERE HALF FULL ON LNDG. I DID NOT WANT TO ATTEMPT TO GO AROUND WITH A QUESTIONABLE ENG AND STUDENT PLTS IN THE PATTERN., I SUSPECT THE ENG DRIVEN FUEL PUMP FAILED BUT I WON'T KNOW UNTIL AFTER THE INSURANCE ADJUSTER APPROVES REPAIRS. THERE WAS NO CONTACT AND NO INJURIES.
