    Default Removing the JE Berkley pump.

    Anybody pulled a JE pump out without damaging the fiberglass? do you have to heat up the pump to make the sea poxy come out easier?

    x2, a rebuild should be done with it still attached to the hull

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Basically, it's easier to pull the engine than try to break loose the JE suction housing. Break loose is very discriptive- usually, you also take some of the glass with it, and then have to repair the hull.

    I thought the shaft was pressed into the housing with the bearing? So If I remove the motor I can pull out the shaft from the front?

    hey man.. I got a Je and TONS of pics on how i rebuilt mine.. they are correct that you need to remove the motor and not the pump.. PM me and i can hook you up with any photos you need on how i did it..


    BTW.. one piece of advice.. remove the impeller nut and impeller before removing the engine.. It will help.

    X's 3 this jet was IMO not designed to be serviced out of the hull , once epoxied in place they are really "stuck" and would not remove it unless we needed to replace or repair the suction , Pure grunt and brute force are the basics if you were determined to pull it Not a fun job heres a pic of a Jacuzzi Golden Eagle (similar mount) Holy sh*t what a job !
