    1985 3870 Shower Pump Repair-gctid380642

    Shower pump got to where it would hardly pump any water at all. After inspection I found that the hole in the shaft coming from the bellows was worn into a long oval shaped hole. This caused the bellows to not move very much at all, thus very little water was being pumped out. Took the bellows unit off the pump to make working on it easier. Filled the hole with JB Weld and placed a washer just the right size over the hole. The JB Weld cured in 24 hr. and held the washer fast and tight. The washer hole was a little to small. So I drilled a new hole the right size for the shaft from the motor. Now the pump work's just fine.

    Nice fix. It's great when you can repair rather than replace.
