    Default 12-JC stuck bowl

    Hello all, anyone have any tips to remove a bowl that's stuck to the suction housing on a Berkeley 12-JC? I've tried smacking it with a deadblow hammer and small amount of heat with a torch, but no luck so far. I don't want to get too carried away with the hammer as I'm scared I'll break the bowl. Aside from the 8 3/4" bolts, that's all that holds it together, correct?
    Thanks for any advice!

    For the most part, that's it...Is the transom adapter off the boat? Sometimes a heavy dose of silicone is used in the O ring groove and can stick em pretty good...My guess if the transom assy. is off and not interfering that it has had a sticky sealer put on it and the gasket is stuck, there is also an interference fit boss on the pump that can hang up.

    I normally use a block of wood and a small sledge hammer to smack them from side to side when they stick, never had one too hard to remove.

    Put 4 of your bowl bolts back in about 3/4 of the way. Leave them out about 3/16" to 1/4". Smack the bolt heads from the back side with a dead blow hammer while someone is putting side pressure on the side where you are hitting the bolts. This will usually get the bowl loose. Use common sense on how hard and long to beat on the bolts so you don't ruin threads in the bowl. An alternative way is to insert a blind end punch just a little smaller than the bowl bolt threads, bottom it out in the bowl bolt hole and hit it with a BFH.
    Good Luck!

    Yes, the transom adapter is off, so I'm guessing it must just be stuck. I had to use an impact wrench on a few of the bowl bolts so I'm thinking it's been a while since it's been apart. Good idea on using a punch bottomed in the bolt holes. I'll give that a try tomorrow. Thanks for all the info.
