VRO PUMP ?


upnorth

Question

I am looking for some advice on whether I can use some kind of epoxy to glue the top hose nipple back on to the top of the fuel/VRO pump. The motor is an "87" Evinrude 70 horse.

I was tracing a fuel leak and the top nipple was cracked and when I tried to remove it, part of the pump case chipped off. I really don't want to spend $230 or more on this thing.

I talked to the local hardware store guy and he thinks JB weld would do the trick, don't know if I trust his opinion tho. Don't want to call a marine dealer cause they are gonna tell me that I need to replace(money in their pocket)the pump.

I am unsure what that is made of, but if it is some type of metal try NAPA Gas Tank repair. It is similar to JB Weld but stronger. It will seal cracked engine blocks also.

The thing is made of plastic, so I need something that will bond to plastic and not leak.

Upnorth, you might want to check with a dealer if the have a junk one (they used to fail a lot), you might have more luck this way. A gas leak in engine compartment is not something to take lightly, I had here 2 boats that were burned by motor problems, they weren't cheap to replace, beside the danger to you and other people onboard.

If all fails.....let me know I have a used one here, I might sell very cheap, you can make me any offer.

That is what prompted this issue, looking for leaks because of some starting problems, and I think that it has been leaking for some time now. The nipple at the top was just hanging there and when I moved the hose a little with my finger tip the gas just gushed out. I have no idea why that dang thing actually ran that way.

I will keep it in mind that you have one tho.
Thanks smile.gif

valv,
I am interested in that pump, the more I think about it I don't know if I trust a glue job. You got some contact info. Or you can send it to me at [email protected]

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
