starboard raw water pump

Postby ukester » Thu Jul 06, 2017 6:37 am

well i always get mixed up -the starboard raw water pump is not sucking water-I may have this backwards any way to tell? Both pumps i have rebuilt 2 years ago but have not had them running since the installation.


thanks mark

In saying "I may have this backwards" do you mean you may have installed the impeller backwards? If so, you'd see very obvious bubbling coming from under the boat.
