Anyone repair Jabsco Ballast Pumps?

I could’ve sworn impasse post I saw that somebody on team talk repairs Dallas pumps. My searches came up empty except for a few discussion threads on how to repair and possibly source parts yourself. Does anyone know of anybody that repairs/rebuilds the jabsco ballast pumps?

Thank you!!

There is (was) a guy on the MasterCraft Boat Owners FB page that was repairing them and did one of mine. I sent him a message to see if he is still doing them.

There is a thread on here where a guy walks through step-by-step on how to clean/repair them.....I followed said instructions and have repaired 2 or 3 over the years. Pretty easy, depending on why the failure, often it is because of the way they were mounted and water got down inside. You basically pull it apart and clean all of the rust ftom the components and reassemble....

I have a new one still in the box I bought from Wakemakers but had mine working before it arrived, so I kept it as a spare. If you're interested, shoot me an offer.

I picked up the Wakemakers version of the Johnson Talulah pump to replace my Ballast Puppy.

Then got the adapter.

Took my fill time from 11 minutes to 8 minutes for the KGB with the bow piggyback in my 205v.

Here is the link to disassembling the ballast pump housing and polishing and porting the housing.
