Whale gusher 25 rebuild kit?

I bought a Whale gusher 25, bilge pump today and am in need of a rebuild kit for it. West Marine only list the kits for the newer WG 30. I used the CF search feature and didnt learn anything about them, so I am asking anyone here if you know of a parts source?______Thanks,__Grant.

I went chasing around the internet and found a few suppliers, but from their web sites, they didnt seem to have the kits in stock. Defender appears to have one in stock, so I will find out tomorrow. Thanks____Grant.

Re: Whale gusher 25 rebuild kit?

Well, let's revive this thread
I've got 3 Whale Gusher 25 pumps that I'm rebuilding. One of which the diaphram bolt snapped of and I couldn't get the stub out. I tried a little heat ... oops ... a little too much heat and melted it.
Does anyone have an old pump they would part out and sell me the yoke assembly?
Thanks

Chasing Summer, life got in the way and my pump is still sitting on the work bench. I should order the kit from Defender, since I dont know how long they will have them in stock. ______Grant.

Update: After doing a little research ... remember these pumps are made in Australia, the bolts are BSW (British Standard Whitworth). A lot of bolt sizes are the same as National Course but for 1/2" NC is 13 tpi & BSW is 12 tpi.
I bought a 3 set of BSW 1/2"-12 and I can make the threaded yoke piece and I'll turn the bolt on my lathe. ... Problem solved
