Re: Got a lttle camping in this past weekend

But everything nice and dry. Nearly impossible to get wet when it's like this, and the sun shines too. Pleasant as long as you keep moving

Re: Pump Well Seam - Caswell Help?

OK, it doesn't "join the font" down at the bottom where check valve is.

If you don't have caswells any thin epoxy would work. Do you have check valve out? See if it's 3/8th 24 thread, or whatever it is, just get a bolt that sze, should be a straightforward repair

Re: Pump Well Seam - Caswell Help?

"Where tube joins font" The tube joins font up top, so it that right? Easily confused here......

The check valve is a standard thread, IIRC it's 3/8 24, (at least on a 242 I just had apart) so any bolt will thread in.

Re: Pump Well Seam - Caswell Help?

I would pressurize font, remove pump and fill with water so you know exactly where it leaks. Then report back.

I would be tempted to apply whatever sealer down pump tube and apply vacuum to font, sucking product into crack/hole
