Hello. My name is Tan.

The pump will be mounted on top of the waste tank or next to it. Post a pic of the waste tank and I can point out the pump.

In this pic is a typical waste system. The motor is usually what goes bad.

Is it tripping the circuit breaker or just no coming on? http://s101.photobucket.com/user/wingless-pics/media/Misc/DorkTank.jpg.html

Hi Todd, my name is Jason.

All Mercrusiers are cataloged by serial number, do you happen to have that number handy?

Next, what is the history on this engine, have you ever personally seen it make full power under a load?

The pump is not on the tank. Neither I or the mechanics can find it
Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.

Have you looked next to the tank? Follow the discharge line from the head or follow the lines coming from the tank.

I am not at the boat. Will check back when I am there
Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.

Ok this is the Vacu Flush system correct? All you have to do to flush is push the pedal and it sicks the waste out correct.
