Whale Gusher 10 Bilge Pump Customer Questions and Answers

Question

My Whale 10 Gusher pump is corroded internally and needs replacing. I have been advised that replacing it with a plastic pump (Whale Titan?)would be worth consideration. Is the Titan compatible with the Gusher 10, i.e. same bulkhead opening, same bolt holes, etc.?

Top Answer

It all depends on the owner who wrote you. What I would do is to repair the Gusher 10. Yes, replacing it will give you a new pump but after being at sea (not constantly) for 75 years, I repair ANY equipment I am capable of repairing. I did not buy a new Gusher pump as the mail said. I bought the replacement kit and it worked fine after using the original for 22 years. Yes, they are usually installed in places hard to get to, but replacing it will be the same job. Whale pumps are magnificent and work for years. The repair is extremely simple, indeed the hard part is to take it out and put it back again. Do as I told you and you'll be happy you learned a new job aboard. Write me again and I'll send you my article "The genie in the cigar box"

I don't know if the mounting holes and clearances are compatible but to find this out, why don't you look up specs for both online at the manufacturers websites?

Answer

I dont have an answer to your question, but because of internal corrosion on my pump i tried using a rebuild kit from gusher to repair. Unfortunately the kit was slightly off and i ended up buying a whole new pump. Apparently the kit doesnt quite fit older pumps even though they say they do, so go ahead and replace.

Question

trying to replace flapper but the screws are seized. What is best way to remove without breaking the housing or stripping the screws?

Asked on 07/15/2013 by Bob H

Top Answer

If I wished to remove the screws that contain the flapper valve, I would first try soaking them in PB Blaster for about 3 days while tapping them every hour or so. Then try to turn them out while tapping the screwdriver with a hammer. If you're not able to remove them by the above method, you will have to grind off the heads and drill the screws for an easyout. Don't worry about saving the screws - worry about the pump body. J.

Answer

Bob, Suggest you try soaking the screws with PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench for 24 hours then try to remove them. If this is unsuccessful then try using a propane torch on the pump body. You may need to do this several times. The usual precautions regarding heat, flame, fire hazard and bodily injury apply. Good Luck,

Answer

I found this to be a waste of time. After removing, drilling out & tapping etc, it was apparent there was enough corrosion on the seats that replacing the pump became a better alternative. Please note that in my case the direction of flow of the pump needed to be reversed, requiring some disassembly & reassembly.

Top Answer

The Whale Gusher 10 manual bilge pump is an excellent pump. One of the best features is precisely the ease of repair when changing the repair kit. It is easy for any DIY sailor. A couple of points here. Due to the fact that the pump is a cast aluminum body, potential galvanic corrosion could be present. Be sure to scrape and clean the inside of the body well, be careful when removing the screws that hold the rubber flap-valves and remove any crud formed there. Other than this, the job is an easy one if the initial installation was done right. One of the tricks is to run the hoses in a way in which everything is accessible for the next guy. Make it easy to remove the hoses. Good Luck

It comes with the replacement neoprene parts i.e. the two check valves and the big neoprene bellows piece, the replacement stainless steel screws and plastic spacers that hold the neoprene check valves in, and a replacement gasket that goes under the holder for the exhaust check valve.

It should be stipulated on the literature, but if not, my experience is that 8 to 10 feet is good.
