Failed manual bilge pump

Manual bilge pump failed on my "new" 1983 IP26 exactly like on this picture. I searched on Kempax pumps but no results. Any recommendation on replacement pump and source of this type stuff online?

Thanks,

Re: Failed manual bilge pump

Andrew, had the same pump on my IP 26 MK II which also failed. I could find no direct replacement so went with something like a Whale Compac 50.
No at the boat until this weekend so not sure of exact model. It fit ok except the bolt holes were different so had to do a little filling/patching.

It is mounted on the starboard side of the cockpit maybe a foot forward of the locker.

Defender has them. If I run across the paper work I'll post the exact mode.

Good luck.

Don't bother trying to rebuild it. It's junk. I bought a rebuild kit from RARITAN, they had all the parts. It lasted about two weeks and failed again. There's a reason that they (Kempax) are out of business.

Whale manual bilge pumps are what IP installs these days, as well as most boat manufacturers. Much better reliability.
