Good evening, hope you are doing well. I am looking for a source for parts for the two bilge pumps in the rear of my 42. When I bought the boat those pumps did not work, so I added a small 800gpm pump temporarily in their place. Both pumps are in place, but one motor is missing, do any of you know a source for parts for them?

Thank you!

I have sourced motors for the original pump from Grainger. but it seems the prices must reflect Chinese importation tariffs.  You could almost buy a water pressure pump and either salvage the motor or use it as the bilge pump. I use a water supply pump for my fwd bilge pump with an in-line strainer between it and the pump.  There is little difference in volume between the two different pumps and the original water pumps were the cam and rod pumps as well as the bilge pumps.  I do have a "We're going down!" high capacity pump that has not been installed, mostly due to my reluctance to make another hole in the hull.  Rather to go down gracefully than stay afloat with extra holes.

Ha, yes sir I have the look out belows as well, The cams and rods are still there. I have not removed the pumps yet, I suspect there are  diaphragm pumps much like fuel pumps. I also suspect I will need those little fellers replaced.

I  just abandoned one of the cam pumps, the bearing died a tragic and gritty death showering the top of the pump with brass or bronze filings, if you want the motor it may still be aboard or not.

Sounds worth the price of shipping to me to see whats inside! The problem with the new on is it has to be primed ever time now. I do have some water in the bilge. I still cannot find the nature of said water. Anyway, I have to prime it each time so I thought that I would try one of the originals since there must have been some degree of engineering in deciding that should be the pump and configuration of choice back in 70.

A positive pump shouldn't need to be primed unless the diaphragm is either compromised or has a valve with a bit of gunk under one of the inlet/outlet seals.

agreed, leave the pump in place and just take out the top 4 screws to lift off the top. Pop out the 2 diaphragms
and I bet you find a little something holding the rubber from sealing properly.

Sounds good, I will try that when I get there this weekend. Thank you both!

https://www.marinepartssource.com/ likely can source the parts you need.  Get the part number off the pump before you call as Jabsco offered several different models.

Thank you sir

WANTED: National Chris-Craft Commander Club Rendezvous Hosts!!

A National Rendezvous is a gathering of club members and their beloved Commanders. It is a great place to see some beautiful boats, make new friends and catch-up with old friends. It is always interesting to see what is different on the same model boat and a great place to get ideas, tips & tricks.

If you would like to host a rendezvous, the Executive Committee will assist you with ideas, registration, and anything else you might need.  

If your marina, or a marina near you, could house additional boats for a weekend and if you have several Commanders in your area, we encourage you to consider hosting a rendezvous.

Please contact Char Pike, at rendezvous.commanderclub@gmail.com, with your questions.
