Looks like an old style Valterra RP800 hand pump, commonly sold at RV Centers for around $30.00. The current version is chrome finished. See Valterra Rocket Hand Pump Chrome RP800

Yes, but cannot remember the manufacturer. Had on on my old 1975 23' S2. I bought a rebuild kit in 1987. Do not remember the cost.

I'm pretty sure that's a Wilcox / Crittenden pump. I used to sell them. They've been out of business for more than ten years.

I believe it's Whale Water Systems Pump Flipper Type. Parts are still available.

I have two on my boat. The chandlers in New Zealand sell them. Service kits seem to be available.

Re: Manual water pump needs rebuild

I've just remembered that when I needed a service kit the specs had changed - the nut where the handle is attached and the bits that go in from there are now a different size so the service kit was useless. My boat is about 40 years old and I don't know how old the pumps were. They might have been original.

Re: Manual water pump needs rebuild

It sure looks like one of these, though this one is all chrome:

Amazon.com: Valterra RP800 Chrome Rocket Hand Pump: Automotive Amazon.com: Valterra RP800 Chrome Rocket Hand Pump: Automotive



it is only 28 dollars with free shipping so I might not bother rebuilding, or get the kit and the faucet so you could replace it, then in your spare time rebuild the old one and keep it as a spare.

Possibly this rebuild kit

Amazon.com: Valterra RP320 Rocket Hand Pump Repair Kit: Automotive Amazon.com: Valterra RP320 Rocket Hand Pump Repair Kit: Automotive



Keep in mind these may be sold under different brands, and if labeled marine it will likely cost 10 times as much. I will say I think this one is likely all plastic and I think there is a metal one available.

Re: Manual water pump needs rebuild

It still looks like a Wilcox-Crittenden to me.
I looked it up in an old Wilcox catalog today.
Sea-Gal Galley Pump #6528 with Low Spout
I'll try to post a scan of the catalog page.
