Question about Flotec Plumbing

Pump body and bracket position bolt mount repair.

Hi, I was installing new 4032-10 pump. I wanted to put the pump on a wooden base, so I removed the two bottom bolts so I could mark position on the wood with just the base. All was good or so I thought, after assembly, then priming, water came out the bottom of the pump, so I tightened the bolts a little more not too tightly. All was fine apart from the water pressure would drop sometimes. Tank side pressure read 50psi / pump would go up to 45psi. but would drop to below 15psi. I think I need too check these gauges. Returning home, the pump was running, water gushing out, the pump body had come away literally pulling the mounts on the plastic pump body about half an inch out. My questions are; Does the base go between the pump body and motor or does it sit on the bolt head side? Also I have only been using it for a week and the pressure seemed good but would drop and it would not engage unless I flicked manually would this be due to the foot valve or is it the pressure tank lacking air? I think I will have to order a new pump body unless I could get a strong glue to put back the bolt mounts in place ? Any ideas on this? save $$$. But I'd like to check it's not something other than me putting either the base in the wrong place (at head of bolt side is where I put it.) which I'm sure was right as with other pumps? Or I have just done them too tightly and they just gave way as they are in bedded plastic? I would be grateful for advice as I live on a remote island no plumper shops here! cheers.

Lol too much power for the pressure tank back off the flow or get a new pressure valve 50 psi is good pressure how big is the tank what is the gauge rated for all these \details need to be spoken in order to answer sounds like you want some water lol its sucking air too tank doesn't need air it has to be primed first tighten the bolt and now you have to use pipe sealant white putty to seal those nuts and bolts back up pump cant suck air

SOURCE: i have a flotec water pump that sits on top of my

if the pump is working correctly, it can either be, need more water to prime it, or something in the well, such as low water, plugged filter, etc....sometimes when you have a system that is intermittently used, it can take 20 or 30 minutes of continuous priming to get it to pull, enough water to maintain the prime.

SOURCE: 1999 Buick Park Avenue water pump removal

The bolt holding you up is on the bottom by the compressor, right? You Will have to have an inverted torx socket to remove the studs. Also there is a spacer behind the mount bracket, remember where it goes. You will have to pull the pully bolts and get it out of the way too. Some of those cars have plastic elbows going from the intake to the water pump, be carefull with it. Your motor may not have this but be ready to replace it if it does because it will most likley break. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Cabin pump, primed fine only goes to28psi and keeps running

Sounds like the injector nozzle is plugged. This nozzle is directly inside the influent line on single line jets and down in the well on two-line jets. I'm assuming you have it primed correctly. If this happened suddenly the it'd definitely the injector nozzle. It it was a gradual process over time then I would say it's either a badly worn nozzle or worn impeller.

How do i replace a water pump on a 1992 buick lesabre custom


GM Bonneville/Eighty Eight/LeSabre 1986-1999 Water Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
1987-95 Vehicles
EXCEPT 1995 VIN 1 ENGINE
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the serpentine drive belt, as outlined in of this repair guide.
On some engines, removing the alternator provides better clearance for removing the water pump. For alternator removal and installation procedures, please refer toin this repair guide.

  1. Unfasten the water pump pulley bolts, (long bolt removed through access hole provided in the body side rail), then remove the pulley.
  1. Disconnect the radiator and heater hoses from water pump.
  1. For 1992-95 vehicles, remove the torque axis mount, as follows:
    1. Use a suitable engine support fixture and lifting bracket to raise the engine slightly to take the weight off of the engine mounts.
    2. Remove the through-bolt from the torque axis (front) engine mount.
    3. Lift the engine with the support fixture until the power steering reservoir touches the strut tower cross brace.
    4. Loosen the bottom two bolts on the torque axis (front) engine mount.
    5. Remove the A/C line clip and top two bolts on the torque axis engine mount, then remove the mount.
    6. Remove the 2 bolts and nut attaching the engine torque axis mount bracket assembly to the front of the engine.

On some engines, when you remove the 13mm bolts, coolant will flow from the bolt holes, so make sure to position a drain pan under the pump before unfastening the bolts.
  1. Remove the water pump attaching bolts, then remove the water pump from the vehicle. Remove and discard the gasket. Thoroughly clean the gasket mating surfaces.
To install:
  1. Apply a suitable sealant to the bolt threads.
  1. Position a new gasket, then install the water pump to the engine and tighten the retaining bolts, as follows:
  1. For 1987-94 vehicles, tighten the long bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (17 Nm) and the short bolts to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm).
  2. For 1995 vehicles, tighten the water pump-to-block bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) and the water pump-to-front cover bolts to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm), plus an additional 80° rotation.

  1. For 1992-95 vehicles, install the torque axis mount, as follows:
    1. Attach the torque axis engine mount bracket assembly to the front of the engine using the 2 bolts and nut.
    2. Replace the 2 upper bolts previously removed from the torque axis engine mount, and attach the mount and plastic clip for the A/C lines.
    3. Tighten the 2 lower bolts that were previously loosened on the torque axis engine mount.
    4. Adjust the engine height to align the torque mount with the torque axis mount bracket.
    5. Insert the through-bolt, attach the retaining nut and tighten to the specifications shown in the accompanying figure. Remove the engine support and lifting fixture.
  2. Install the water pump pulley and secure with the retaining bolts.
  3. Connect the radiator and heater hoses to the water pump.
  4. Install the serpentine drive belt.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Fill cooling system and check for leaks. Start the engine and allow to come to normal operating temperature. Check for leaks and top-off the coolant.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated this; TY for using Fixya.
