    Default WJ Finally Going Back In

    I finally have a free night to put my freshly rebuilt (Thanks ProMOD!) WJ12 back in the boat and just have a couple quick questions before getting going.

    I removed the pump without taking the bellhousing adapter off, but it looks like I need to remove it in order to set the pump down onto the intake straight correct?

    Anyone have torque specs for a Jacuzzi they can send me, or is it a matter of "just tighten it down real good"?

    How much silicone should I use around the transom plate to the transom? A bead or two, or a whole shit load?

    Pump to intake - silicone along with the gasket or no?

    That it! Thanks

    Bell housing? Do you mean transom adapter( and if you do mean transom adapter, yes its easier if it is taken off. A little concerned that the guy that rebuilt it didn't remove it for re assembly.)

    If you have the proper gaskets, no silicone is needed and I would highly advise against using any. If you don't have the gaskets, get them. You can coat the gaskets with grease and future disassembly will be much easier.

    Storz Glad to see you and Grant got it all together , We use 100% Silicone to reinstall (none on the intake to suction gasket ) and withstanding the large TA/bowl oring (which we seldom use) there has never been an actual OEM Transom adaptor gasket like Berks use to my knowledge Re the "Bell hsg", guessing you had a three point mount setup ? in which case you simply need to lift the back of the engine a bit to sneak the jet back in and engage the drive line , Snug the intake bolts to 25 to 35lbs evenly if you wish to torque (short box end works well ) , if you haven't already installed this yet , use some 3M spray to tack the intake gasket to the intake , put a light coating of grease on the top of said gasket, grease the pump and D/L splines and slide the jet in taking care to not scuff the gasket, once the suction bolts are snugged down, reclean everything, "dry fit" the T/A to determine where the center of the sealing surface will be , then if not useing the Bowl oring , run bead of silicone around the bowl circumference and a small bead thru the center of the T/A (not the hull, push the T/A on bolt it then clean up, finish caulk a very small bead around the bowl and adaptor and your good ! call if you need help Tom

    I used the Bowl O ring when putting my TA adapter on. Pain in the Ass! I had to put a little soap on there so it would slide over it.

    hah good thing too!

    Pump is back in, hopefully hitting the lake tomorrow.

    Thanks again to Grant for his awesome work on the ol WJ (hopefully my Jacuzzi didn't slow any of his Berkley pumps down over at his shop )
