Jul 16, 2001 · RE: Livewell Pump Problem You could have something as simple as a blockage in the pump inlet. Try using a garden hose, and flowing water backward from the livewell inlet, back through the pump, and out the boat, with the boat out of the water.
Dont know if this will help you out bbusbey, but my problem was fixed. I had to install a new bilge pump so I went with a automatic one. It installed directly under the live well pump. Well the new bilge pump was about 1/4 " taller then the old one. So it raised the live well pump up about 1/4"....now livewell works good. Primes easy.
