Livewell Pump?

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys just wondering if someone can help me out. I have a 1700 Lund Fisherman and my livewell pump has gone out. This is the first time and I am not the handiest when it comes to fixing things but at the same time I would like to figure some of this stuff out. Can anyone explain to me how to replace the pump? Any assistance would be appreciated.

Process is very similar to a bilge pump, depending on how your pumps are mounted. See here for some info to get you started.

Your livewell pump may be a thru-transom style, in that case there would be a large plastic nut on the outside of the transom holding the pump in place (nut might be covered by a debris screen of some sort). When you replace this style you should use silicon or similar to seal the mounting to keep it waterproof. Hope this helps.

Not meaning to be a SA, but first and foremost check the fuse below the livewell (aerator) on off toggle switch. May save alot of time and money.

Be sure to check the impeller on the pump for weeds, Sometimes the pump is fine but the impeller is clogged. You should be able to take it apart with out having to removal it.

I have a Lund 1700 ProSport. The livewell pump has stopped working twice. Off the water, reach down in the access. twist off the pump cover and spin the impeller, no weeds or debris were found. Pump cover back on, power back on and the pump works fine.

First time out this season was the same thing.

May not need to replace the pump just yet.

Good Luck!

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
