Things are happening now!!
Got the go ahead from Deb to spend at will!
I got the new motor about ready, had it in once but yarded it back out to go deeper. Got the transom adapter off with no damage to paint job. was not easy due to no gasket being used on previous install. There was no O-ring on pump, just silicone.
Am sending the pump to MPD Monday. It is a 12 JC, but Jack at MPD says he can put a 2 piece bowl on it for the addition of droop and place.
I will have some questions as I go. Am planning on following MPD's advice on pump, but would like some other input as far as droop? place diverter is a must, I think. Any advice there?
Will put pics up in a few hours.
