Question about Yamaha 12V Air Pump
If its on a Yamaha thats been used in salt water here's what happens. Yamaha uses a stainless liner as a wear ring, the problem being (though very durable and strong) is the outer casing is made of aluminum and the liner is pressed in. The most common prob is that the salt water gets in between the 2 materials and then starts to corrode, since the liner is very thin it gives before the aluminum and starts to swell inward making the gap in the wear ring obsolete. When you run it out of water it will sound like a bearing going out with a loud "whiring" sound but thats only if you can get it to turn over and start because the ones that have sat for a long time wont due to the amount of swelling that has taking place on watercraft that have not been in use.
