    Default Replacing a JE suction piece...

    Have a friend that just grounded his boat and broke the suction piece pretty good. I have rebuilt dozens of pumps, but have never been involved in replacing this part. It appears that they use some sort of epoxy from the manufacturer to seal it up to the boat?
    Anyone been down this road before....thanks for any info or links

    Not a fun job the E and F and other "insert pumps" were not really designed to be easily removed for repairs , removal requires warming and relieving the epoxy that holds the suction to the hull after (fastener removal) almost assured there will be some fiberglass damage call if you need pointers Tom

    Thanks Tom, I did find another thread that was talking about the joys of this particular job!
    The owner needs to have some work done to the bottom of the boat anyways, so I guess I will try and help him get the pump out before hand.
    How much heat does it take.....rose bud type?
    Not what I needed to get involved in right now.....LOL
