    Replaceing Bilge Pump

    Hi, I'm looking to replace the bilge pump on a Fundeck 201 outboard. The bilge is located just under the back seats but is only accessible through a couple of 6 inch holes in front of the engine, or maybe through the battery port. I can barley reach it with my hands and I can?t see it when I do this. Any tips on getting at this thing. And any recommendations on a new pump? Model Year 2000.

      OK I did it. Access can be had through the two port holes in front of the engine.  It pays to have long thin arms and patience. I used the battery port to mount a flash light to illuminate the pump so I could see the screws (that took a bit of finagling, having a second person holding it is better).  There were four screws holding the housing down. One is in the back (of course) and I could only just barely see it through the port that the motor wires run out of.  I had to essentially do that one by feel alone.   As it turns out the pump needed a new cartridge and that just unscrews from the top of the housing, but it’s almost impossible to do that in place.  The pump cartridge is a 1000 gpm Johnson, got it on Amazon $35.
