Re: Adding a second bilge pump

This is an informative site as well. An eye opener for some. As an ex offshore commercial fisherman, I always wanted a big jabsco to run off the engine, with a manual clutch. Pricey, but recommended for a real ocean voyager. Kevin

Re: Adding a second bilge pump

Here's one with an electric clutch. Not sure if that's a good idea, in case you lose battery power. But must be some way around that. kevin

The way around that is a PTO drive. I don't know if any Marine engines offer this option but its direct and requires no electricity. That has always been my favorite Diesel feature once its running you need to run out of fuel for it to stop.

This one has a manual clutch. I'm sure you could find a cheaper one, somewheres. Kev

Re: Adding a second bilge pump

Even a clutchless pump with the belt removed will work. Just put the belt on in case of emergency or to test.

Re: Adding a second bilge pump

Converted car engines don't have pto's so all the pumps ,compressors and drum /gurdie drives were belt driven. Usually done on the fly, the engine idling. Bit of a nac to it and most everybody had at least one stubby finger .

Re: Adding a second bilge pump

My uncle in CA is THE Jeep guy, they make Blenders from starter motors for the trail, and if someone needs a starter they just go without a blender for a while. They make welders from alternators too. So as with anything else if you're handy you can make this work.
