Hey fellas! Was having issues with my starter making noises so i pulled it off and found one of the bolts was broken. Got new starter bolts and had the starter tested at AutoZone and they said it's fine. I put it back on and it's still making the noise. Does this sound like it might need to be shimmed?

If it was me I would still use marine parts. To my knowledge marine parts are not supposed to cause any spark but they are also built to help prevent corrosion, deterioration and all those fun things that happen when you mix metal and water. I don't know about you but the last thing I want is a broken boat in the middle of the water. Anyways just my $.02.

Jet Pumps / Re: Impeller damage too much to fix?
« on: December 07, 2017, 08:13:42 PM »
Doesn't really look bad at all.  We repair those all the time.

As stated, it really needs to come out to be inspected.  Chances are, the bowl has some dings also.

Equally important is the wear ring clearance.  The diameter on the front of the impeller should be 7.225 and the wear ring ID should be 7.250
Thanks guys I appreciate all the input! Hey Flusher... How much do you charge to fix an impeller like mine?

I was checking out the impeller in a boat I recently bought and it looks pretty banged up. I was hoping someone could tell me if this could be repaired or if I need to buy a new one. Thanks guys!

Absolutely! I'll probably have time to take it off tomorrow. I'll take some pics and send them your way.

I'm pretty sure the starter that is currently on there is not the right one. Just bought the boat. Third pic is of the starter on there now. I've never seen a starter with 3 holes like that and only one bolt holding it on. Pretty sure mine is supposed to have the staggered bolt setup.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / What's with the price gap for starters?!?!
« on: November 30, 2017, 04:19:01 PM »
So I'm in the process of replacing the starter on my 4.3 volvo. I know I need to use a marine starter so I go online and search and come up with several options in the $50-$75 range that all say they are marine starters. When I call my local shop they quoted me $250 for a marine starter. That's a huuuuge price gap... So are the ones I am finding online not really marine starters? or is the shop stacking huge profit margins? Can anybody fill me in here? I want a decent marine starter for my application but I would also like to save $200 if possible. Thanks in advance, any help is greatly appreciated 😁👍😎

Looks VERY similar to a Berkeley JC bowl, with Place Diverter.

The long ass bolt on the steering HAS to go. The tiny bolts for adjusting the ride plate gotta go too.

Just my $0.02

Yeah I already got a replacement for the steering bolt. Which of the other 2 are you referring too? The ones that connect to the bowl towards the end of the ride plate or the other 2 that seem to connect to nothing?

First, pull it apart.

Likely the leading edges of the impeller are trashed.

«heck The wear ring to impeller skirt gap.

If it's aluminum, it's probably scrap, stainless can be repaired,  to a certain extent.

Tom at Jet boat performance would know what impeller it needs. Possibly CP Performance, too.

Good luck

Much appreciated good sir! I have never taken apart a pump before so am I correct in assuming I need new bushings/seals for when I put it back together?

I can't remember if the Volvo pump was made by Dominator or Legend. It is a Berk style pump

Regardless, the bowl is pretty easy to remove.

CP Performance has quite a few videos on the Berkeley pump.

Look at the je or the jf pumps.

Yes, there are some minor differences but are more alike than not.

Rocks in the stator is never a good sign. Might need a new impeller.

Good luck,

Dan'l
The pump intake has no grate on it so it sucked up some big rocks. How do I know when I need a new impeller? I've heard guys with the same boat saying it goes 52 at wot but mine only does about 30-35.

What's it powered by?

And is Mario Batalli driving in the third pic?

Dan'l
It's a volvo 4.3 but has aftermarket cam and exhaust. Sounds like a V8 at idle but sounds like a v6 when you get on the throttle. Haha and no that's actually my dad!

Jet Pumps / Looking for volvo pump info or manual
« on: November 24, 2017, 12:00:20 PM »
Hey guys I just bought my first boat recently. I took it out for a run and it ran great but really slow(30mph). Now it's not supposed to be a fast boat but I feel it should run faster than this. I was looking inside the pump and I see a few rocks wedged in the stator vanes. I tried to get them out but they just fell back inside the bowl. I am looking for a manual for my volvo pjx pump so I can take it apart with confidence. I'm not super mechanically inclined but I'm also not a moron haha. I just want to make sure I put it back together correctly and it would also be nice to find some maintenance info so I can take care of it properly. Anybody have a lead on where I might find a manual for this pump? Boat is a 1999 larson 176 with a volvo 4.3 litre.
