    Default mission accomplished!

    Spent the better part of 2 hrs today rippin the pump outa the boat and discovering a few things i never saw. Last summer when the boat was running i would notice water getting into the boat somewhere under the oil pan but only under hard acceleration. My 1st guess was to replace the water lines.. NO FIX.. Today when i removed the pump i noticed the bolts holding the suction housing to the intake were finger tight!!! I thaught maybe there where it would be coming in from... But now im thinkin maybe the gasket between the hull and intake??? What type of sylicone should i use when installing everything back into the boat, and how much of a pain in the ass is it to reseal the intake to the hull.... The sealant used before looks kinda yellowish and is hard kinda like liquid nail, deffinetly not sylicone. Any opinions on this would be great. My motor is damn near finished, the pump is off to be rebuilt.. Im within weeks of hittin the water.

    As long as you're using a std berk transom adapter and your transom is straight edge flat, I wouldn't think about puting any silicone on any of the parts. It simply isn't needed. Coat the gaskets with some grease. Works bitchen, easy to take apart next time. Silicone just leads to one thing, more silicone (and a sloppy looking transom).

    The Yellow stuff you see is epoxy. Setting the intake back in is not a difficult process, however it is a very delicate process because it needs to be set very properly. Chances are for most boats, if you were to take the time to research & do it right, you would do a better job than the original manufacturer did. To order new epoxy, order Sea Goin Poxy Putty. All the performance marine(CP, rex, eddie, dana) carry it.

    grease... sounds good. Ive heard that from 2 people now. So ill check into it.. Im not 100% sure if the intake seal is leaking, and dont really wanna rip it out only to reinstall wrong. All the screws to remove it are exposed under the boat, the filler has come out... possibly my leak??? I went over the bolts last summer with sylicone and it seemed to slow it down.. anything more permanent that i could put over the head of the bolts???

    As for the hammer... ive got a different size for different jobs.. usually the big one comes out when im frustrated.

    Damn, that pump is a train wreck! Did you suck up your anchor? You have alot of work ahead of you to get that thing back to efficient. Crate that thing up and send it to MPD. The best money you'll ever spend on the pump. Good luck with the project.

    Your water leak could be coming from the packing gland.

    Might consider a new loader too, the strait angle loaders don't do too much over 60. The ramp loaders an prefered on the faster boats, keeps the pump feed with out the extra drag.

    The loader i have now is just stock... i do have an aftermarket one sitting in the boat in one of the pics.. A buddy of mine has the same one and said it worked out very well... so well see. My boat saw 64 mph with a worn to shit pump and a hammered olds 455.... Hopefully with my brand new motor and pump i might see more??? ill try that aftermarket loader, and after that may switch it up to a ramp style if i find one at the right price.

    If you even have an idea that the intake might be leaking, now is the time to take care of it. Remove it, clean it up, and get rid off ALL OF THE SILICONE. Then reseal it as stated above; with Sea Going Poxy Putty. It'll save you a lot of headaches later when you want to be out boating.
