    Have not replaced the water neck fitting, pivot tube o-ring, but it sounds like they are probably the culprits. I'll check the hoses too and replace the impeller. As far as visting your vault page... yes, I've been there and have learned quite a bit... obviously, there's alot more to learn. Thank you again!
    Gotta give you credit though, at least your reading something. Good job!

    The OEM Volvo Penta manual would never show a RH Rev Rotation engine sea water pump like this.

    Any suction breaches in the main suction hose and/or connections?

    Have you visited my BOC Vault page?

    Moral of the story. Way to much info in a manual, ask the question here at BOC instead.

    You are welcome!

    Go back and look at my last post..... I did an edit to it.

    Yes.... you must have something else wrong.

    Have you replaced the water neck fitting?

    Have you replaced the lower pivot tube O-ring?

    Any suction breaches in the main suction hose and/or connections?

    Have you visited my BOC Vault page?

    Rick,So If I hear you correctly, you're saying the sea pump suction inlet is the bottom port, not the top. Guess I still have a problem then!Update: I reread the manual... yep, I was looking at the wrong type of engine... I should have posted this pic:

    FYI:

    This is incorrect, unless it's for a RH Reverse Rotation engine..... and Volvo Penta did not use a RH REV Rotation engine!




    This is correct.



    And your current configuration is correct.



    Here's an example of a Sherwood pump that in terms of the impeller rotation and pump action against the impeller cam, is very similar to you Jabsco pump.

    The inlet/outlet are configured a bit differently.... but this too is basically the same.... just aimed differently.



    As the impeller rotates CW (as per this view), the vanes enter the cam and leave the cam!

    As they leave the cam, the volume between the vanes increases!!

    As the volume increases, it creates negative pressure pulling sea water in to the pump body.

    These then sweep the water around, and again, in a CW direction, until the vanes become depressed by the cam.

    When the vanes become depressed, positive pressure is created forcing the sea water towards the engine... and the cycle repeats for each vane.

    .
