    pump motor parts

    We live on a swamp, high water flooded my pump station. Power was off, so I've pulled the pump & motor, cleaned it up, re-lubed, etc. One of the long motor bolts was too rusted to salvage. Any sources of Jacuzzi (A.O. Smith) motor bolts? It may do fine with three, there isn't all that much torque. It's a fairly new pump...the previous one also got flooded but packed full of mud. I'm re-mounting the system well above the grade this time!

    Is this your pump?

    I have no affiliation with company the link points to.

    Pool Center is in my neck of the woods. Well, across the county which is almost an hours drive. They have always been prompt answering my emails and have been very helpful. They've also been helpful over the phone. I "bugged" them for weeks, with questions, before purchasing my new filter from them. I have no affiliation with them other than I've purchased a big ticket item and some smaller ones. (Not saying that their prices are better or worse than other places, mind you.)

    Actually it's this one: http://www.poolcenter.com/parts_pumps_j ... series.htm. Notice that items 11 & 12 (bolt & nut) are conveniently omitted from the parts list. Gotta love it. The bolts from the old pump are 3/4" too short on one end.

    A piece of threaded rod (All-Thread) and a nut will work just as well as a long bolt.

    Yes, I may have to do that. Finding all thread that small here in a tiny burg is the other challenge.

    Thanks.

    I've seen motor shops do it all the time. BTW, There is a Lowe's in Surf City, and at least an Ace Hardware in Hampstead.
    Take one of the others with you when you go.

    Yep. My homes away from home. I'll have a better chance of finding bare rod and threading it....which is what I'll probably do.
