    Question Should the pump spin freely by hand???

    If you have a pump (in this case a jacuzzi WJ-B) when you spin the drive shaft by hand should it spin freely and smoothly or should there be some kind of resistance if it is a healthy pump?

    Back off the packing and it should turn free.

    There should be some resistance, but it should turn.
