1995 Lund Tournament V, Livewell Pumps

by Neddly
(Lockport, Illinois)

My Lund has the pumps for the two livewells up by my feet, in the center of the boat. { 10 feet from the transom pick-up ports}. Pumps were replaced last yeAR. RAN FINE THIS FIRST PART OF SUMMER, now the rear pump won't pick-up prime, even backing boat up for a 1/4mile. Could I squeese a pump into the pick-up hose at the transom to feed the main pump, and run a second ckt,and switch for this? or would I not have any draining action from the livewell seeing as I'd be running it through a second pump?

Any help would be GREATLY apperciated!,,, Neddly

Thanks for the feedback JC, I havwe the control valves on the existing two pumps up front now. I There isn't room for the valves on a new pump at the transom. Also I would need much longer control cables.

if you mount the pumps on the transom, you will have less problem priming
