Thread: Pump seized

    Pump seized

    Hello I have a few questions. Is there a way to separate the pump from the motor without removing the pump. I am not sure if the motor or the pump is seized but I think it might be the pump. Also if I do remove the pump will it realign with the coupler or will I need to realign the pump and motor. Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to the hulk. All you need to do is remove the 4 BOLTS closest to the exit of the pump. DO NOT remove the nuts attaching the pump to the hull!!! Disconnect the steering cable and trim if equipped and hoses from the exit nozzle. Then just pull the back end of the pump off. The driveshaft may come with it, if not just grab hold of the shaft and pull it out. Real simple. The driveshaft has rubber bumpers on either end of it, make sure to reinstall it before reassembly. As long as you don't remove the NUTS from the hull, there will be no need to align anything.

    There's a chance the pump may need to be aligned with the engine if you remove the nuts. To answer your Q, remove the 4 bolts and steering cable bolt. Trim too if equipped, and pull the pump off the boat. Then like BD said, a hammer and a 2x4.
