OK. I'm determined to get to the bottom of this.. especially since I'll be needing this a lot next year. I have an old Pearson
28 (1975) and I need to determine if I need to rebuild
. I don't know if it is the original for the boat
. It is a Wilcox Crittenden 37001. When I pump it to put water
in the bowl it pumps a very small amount down the side and it actually sounds like it's pumping air with the water
. When I push the lever to empty the bowl it does empty the little water that is in it. When I first got the boat
a few months ago the holding tank
was full even thought the owner said he never used it. It backed up into the bowl. I pumped that water out with no trouble. Pumped out the tank. Now I face my current
issue. I really doesn't seem to pump a lot of water in the bow. Nothing collects in the bottom. Does this sound like I need to rebuild
the entire head
or is there just a few gaskets that could be shot.
You guys have helped me before I'm hoping you'll be able to help again.
