Hello to all,

Wife and I just bought our first Carver... 1996 325 Aft and are really enjoying... A lot to learn moving up from a 240 Sundancer.. Look forward to the journey.

Welcome Aboard. I have an 81 3007 Aft Cabin model and I really love all the room. I came from a Bayliner 3055 Ciera with twin I/O's. I have a lot to learn when it comes to handling inboards. And I need to get better handling this boat in windy conditions. Hope you have a lot of fun with your 325.

Welcome aboard!

The pump should have a tag on it. Write it all down and then go online to someplace like Defender.
Sometimes you can find brand new name brand items on Ebay as well.

The pump is in the forward cabin under the cover between the bed and the door.
Thanks

Also, if the pump runs but is not moving water, check the strainer installed in line. If that is not clogged up full of mung, you can buy rebuild kits for the wet end of the pump.

I had to replace the fresh water system pump on my 3007. The marina I am located in has a parts department. I showed them the pump I needed and they were able to order me one. It was a pain in the you know where but I replaced the old pump myself and my water system is back up and running. Including tax my pump cost $376.00 + my time doing the install.

I would think that any marine shop should be able to order you a new pump if that is the way you want to go with this.
