    I once tried to split the two halves of a Yamaha. The glue that holds to top and bottom together is very strong, and I did a lot of damage to the hull trying to separate the pieces. If I had to...

    Doesn't look bad to me. Is it grooved, or is it just polished from rubbing against the seals?

    The more important thing to check is the internal splines. That's what goes bad on these. They wear...

    I didn't cut open that sealed bottom section, but based on the weight of the part and how light shines through it, I'm pretty sure there's some sort of filter inside.

    I've owned a 2006 SX230HO...

    I'm referring to the stock design. Obviously, if you modify the pump it might work differently.

    Here are some photos of the bottom section separated from the pump. They might help to understand...

    If I have this figured out correctly, here's how the pump works:

    1. Fuel is picked up from the port on bottom.

    2. Top of pump cartridge (outlet port) is attached to a plastic port that goes...

    My picture is being used in this thread, so I'll also throw in my 2 cents.

    Sorry, pal, but you'll have to take the good with the bad. I'd pay more for parts to be surrounded by all of those beautiful Swedish women.

    The couplers aren't expensive (at least not in the US), so I would just replace it instead of trying to repair it. Again, it's holding back the water in the pump tunnel.

    As for the new design, it...

    Only 1400 miles away.

    Do commercial airliners have trailer hitches?

    The coupler is a solid piece, so yours is damaged. It's a direct opening to the outside of the hull and although the pump shaft sits inside of the mid-shaft, I'd have to guess water will enter the...

    Just an FYI - it wasn't so obvious that the baffle was loose. At first, I didn't detect anything loose. After bouncing the waterbox around a little, I heard the metallic noise coming from the...

    Looks like it rotted thru and cracked. If it was just a hole, I'd take a shot at brazing it. But I wouldn't even try to fix the crack.

    I'll bet you solve the problem by replacing the pump bearings. On the trailer, there's no load on the pump, so the bearings would be quieter. Also, when spinning the impeller by hand, the bearing...
