2003 Glastron sx175 Bilge Pump
« on: April 25, 2017, 02:33:20 PM »
Just bought it is in good shape but cannot locate bilge pump but I assume by the noise that comes on it is under the floor next to the gas tank, but that cover is screwed down and will take some work to get it off, is this where it is? and if so should I be worried I cannot get to it quickly in the event it plugs up with debris?
Also I was told oil for the lower unit has to be Volvo penta brand or it will mess things up, is this true?

We have the same boat. The bilge pump is directly under the engine.
Not sure about the oil. You should hardly ever have to add oil to the lower unit.
