If you see a leak at that top nut (part 25 in the drawing) just tighten it a little. That nut is only there to tighten the packing (part 26). Don't over tighten or the handle with be hard to stroke, but not so loose it leaks.

If it doesn't pump at all, it could be a few things. I've had seaweed block up the flapper valves before (part 9). I installed a small Grocco strainer on the sea water in line to prevent that in the future. Easier to clean a strainer than rebuild a pump.

Just rebuilt mine last week. I will put together a thread for how to do this soon for you. Yes there is a rebuild kit. Costs about $7X.XX bucks - or half the price of a whole new toilet. Still, easier to just rebuild and maybe better. Gaskets are fresh and new.

I cannot put the thread together rigth not. Got a conference call. Will help soon.
