pump rebuilt
« on: February 10, 2015, 08:41:48 PM »
I'm new to this forum and owner of a 2007 Mokai. My question is how do you know if your pump needs to be rebuilt. Are there any signs.

Well there are the obvious signs when you turn it the bearings feeling notchy and/or stiff to turn. Most pumps are full of water and in a quiet room you can shake the pump and hear the water sloshing around. I've been through 70+ pumps so far, and I can count on one hand the number I've seen that didn't have water in them... and three of those were from brand new boats that had never seen water. At least 50 had severe blistering on the bearing seals from extreme heat. So bottom line, your pump might last for years of occasional use, but if you intend on using it often at full throttle I would highly recommend my rebuild. Better sealing, less friction, oil lubrication. I guarantee my rebuild for as long as you own the boat. You can't beat that!  \./8

You're welcome, glad to help and thanks for the feedback. Just let me know when you're ready to send that pump in, 2 day turnaround.  :)

Oh man... that was a good laugh for sure. HAHA

Run your pump until it quits, then you can run your wife to the post office to have it shipped to me for rebuild.  :D

Hey Tom.

It finally happened.  Was putting the boat together after winter and when I put the jet pump assembly in and turned it, it was stiff and grinding.  Took the cone off and sure enough the top bearing seal was off and bearings look damaged. 

... but it is spring fishing and I need to fish.  I packed them with grease and put the cone back on, but I need a rebuild.  If I send it down to you, how long does it take you for a rebuild and can we expedite shipping (at my expense of course) ?

I have two Mokais and would get them both done.

No problem, Bruce. I can have both pumps done 1 day turnaround. Send them to me by UPS is fastest, a prepaid return label would be the quickest way back. Otherwise I would be sending Priority Mail Express and would bill you for that with the rebuild invoice.
