Product Information :

The Jabsco 17830-0012 is a bronze Flexible Impeller Reversible Oil Change Pump with a Nitrile Impeller, Buna Lip Type Seal, 3/8 Inch NPT Ports, coupled to a 12 Volt DC Motor. Motor is 12 Volt DC with Reversible Permanent Magnet with Integral Reversing Switch. The Jabsco Oil Change Pump is designed to be installed near a vessel's engine and permanently plumbed to the engine's oil pan. The pump can be used to remove old oil from the engine, then with the integral reversing switch, the flow direction can be changed to pump a measured amount of new oil back into the engine. The connection to the engine should be controlled by the 3/8 Inch ball valve (provided) to guard against accidental oil discharge. The pump is self-priming and may be positioned up to three feet above the oil source. However, for best operation the pump should be mounted at a level that is just slightly above the highest oil level to be changed.

OPERATION Before changing oil, run engine about 35 minutes to raise the oil temperature to about 100 degrees 140 degrees F and reduce its viscosity. Open the security valve in the oil change system. Ensure the waste oil discharge hose is securely positioned in a waste oil receptacle and switch the pump on by moving the toggle switch in the direction that the oil needs to flow. Once the pumping process is complete, switch the pump off immediately. Do not allow the pump to run dry for more than about thirty seconds or impeller damage may occur. Using the engines dipstick; verify that it is in fact empty and the oil flow was not stopped by sludge. If the engine oil is empty, a measured amount of the correct type of new oil can be pumped back into the engine. Insert what was a discharge hose, and for refilling purposes becomes the intake suction hose, into a container with the measured amount of oil. Move the pumps toggle switch in the direction of desired flow toward the engine and pump the measured amount of oil into it. When the container is empty immediately turn off the pump. Close the system security valve and always check the oil level with the engines dipstick to ensure the oil level is correct. SERVICE The Jabsco Oil Change Pump should provide many years of reliable service without the need for regular or scheduled maintenance. However, if sludge should become lodged anywhere in the system, it can cause excessive vacuum or pressure on the pump that may damage the flexible impeller. If this occurs pump performance will be reduced and it will become necessary to change the pumps impeller. Before performing any service work, ensure the systems security valve is closed and the power to the pump is turned off and labeled Do Not Turn On to guard against it being accidentally turned back on while service work is being performed. Flow rate 6.3 gallons/min. Selfpriming from dry up to 1.2m.
