    Pump replacement question

    I sucked up a quarry of rocks yesterday.

    What i would like to do is have a complete back up of what i am assuming is a pump assembly.

    I was looking at this
    http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....=13&A=140&B=14

    Is it in fact called a pump assembly? If not what should I be looking for?

    thanks
    Scott

    Forget the pump assembly, you dont need it.

    Get yourself a spare prop, and a spare wear ring. Learn how to pull the pump off (Ridiciously easy)

    It is about the same effort to pull the pump assembly out as it would be to change the wear ring. To change the wear ring and prop you need to pull the pump anyway, so why not go the cheaper route............

    I am not very mechanically inclined, so I am somewhat intimidated by anything that doesn't have a circuit board.

    With that said perhaps the apprehension stems from not knowing exactly what I am doing and screwing something up.

    But then again isn't that all these good people volunteer their time to learn and share their experieince.

    First time you pull off the pump it will take you 30 minutes.

    Then you will laugh at how easy it is.

    Then the next time you take it off, it will take you no more than 10 minutes.......

    You can doo it!
    after the first few times, you`ll even know how to read wear ring and prop conditions, feel when these items get worn or damaged, check the pump seal and look to se that the edges didn`t get folded over when installed...
    You can doo it!...PR...

    torque specs: (unless the newers models have changed)
    pump to pump support: 12 then 23 ft lbs.
    Venturi nozzle to pump: 16ft lbs.
    steering nozzle to venturi (pivot bolts) 18ft lbs.
    steering cable bolt: 62in lbs.
    tail cone allen socket bolts: 66in lbs.

    And when u go to put the pump back in, it may help to reach under the intake thru the grate to push the shaft up about 1/2" while pushing fwd on the pump w/ other hand, with your 3rd hand take a sip of beer as this is too easy indeed. BTW, it may take 10 mins the second time but it will only take 5 min each time after that. I get my 17mm, 13mm, 12"ext, rachet, 2 -10mm wrenches, allen wrench, and towel/cardboard in the ground is dirty (like at a launch). If u ever do this after paying someone to do it, u WILL want to shoot yourself.
