I replaced my old, frozen up A/C pump
with a similar KoolAir PM 1000-1 pump
is a 200- Beneteau Oceanis
The hose connection is leaking a steady trip of sea water
. Location in the 461 is below the waterline in front of the engine
underneath the starting battery
and companion way stairs. Lot of stuff to remove.
The hose from the through-hull attaches to a Marlon 90 elbow
which attaches to a bronze
adapter (WM Bushing-Brz 1x3/4 #479678) which attaches, screws in the hard plastic pump. That's where it is leaking.
I tried first without Teflon tape then with Teflon still leaking, BUT only when the pump is not running. When it is pumping water
is on running) no water tripping. Question: How to best connect a metal adapter with a plastic screw in? I just hope I did not ruined the plastic threats in the pump housing. Shall I use a sealant
Appreciate any help.
