Exclamation Head issues

I have a 71 Ranger 26, of the O'Day line. It has a simple head where there is a pump and a small switch to change between fill and flush...worked fine with liquid waste but when used #2 the pump stuck in the up position, even with a good amount of pressure it will not budge. Help.

a. Look up the manual on-line. This one? http://ittflowcontrol.com/files/2909...data_sheet.pdf

b. Most likely there is something in the joker valve, like a big wad of TP. It may soften an pass if you wait a few hours, you may get to disassemble.

Boat rule No. 64...... You clog it, you clean it.

Sounds like a disassembly opportunity. Don't leave it like that or risk permeating your lines.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Getting on it

When I remove the 4 screws on top of the pump, will everything in the bowl come out the pump housing?
