trying to find someone to build my pump anybody . or can i do it myself ? how hard is it?

Not hard if you have the hand tools and machining equipment. The equipment required is in direct relation to what your pump needs.

Otherwise go see Jory at SOS Marine in Granite Bay.

I did mine and had never even seen the inside of the pump before. I've got the nut socket and the impeller puller should you need them. I have an instruction sheet that I found on the internet and then with the help of Rick at Berkeley I had no problems at all. You will need a press for the bushings. One word of advice, just go and buy the complete rebuild kit, it's cheaper then buying the parts one at a time. I'll see if I can find that instruction sheet if you decide to try it yourself.

Given your mechanical ability, rebuilding a pump is fairly easy. If you run into any bumps, there are a few knowledgeable people around to help out. My first choice in NorCal is Jim Coffey at Performance Jet as he's been in the business for 30+ yrs.

Go for it and take your time, it'll turn out great!

btw, since Greg (GaWnCA) offered up the socket and puller, that will make the job that much easier. Although working at Central 4x4, you may already have a socket, the impeller puller sure makes it a lot easier than trying to adapt another puller to work.

I talked to Dave today. He said "Bring 'im in", he's willing to do it himself!

Good deal. He did mine on a quick turn around. Great service.

you should get it torn down to see what is in it & what's needed. it might need something different than a standard part, ya never know. see if the impeller is shot or good etc.

Hey 426, are you plannin' on coming out to Hookie Day on the 3rd with DLB? If so, I have the complete Berkeley pump tool kit, complete with the impeller puller, impeller nut socket and spline socket as well as the bearing & seal drivers. I'll let ya borrow it if ya want.

Matt,
You should really get ahold of Fleetimus! Not only has he installed the ultimate wear rings but he's also right up the road from you in Colfax. I know he would be more than willing to give you a hand.
