    Bilge Pump Replacement 07' PT190 Tracker

    The bilge pump on my 07' PT190 has stopped working, checked the fuse's all checked out ok, the red light on the toggle switch comes on, and bilge pump does not, guess I need to replace it. It doesn't look like an easy task at all, I know the batteries need to come out , which is not a problem, however it looks like the gas tank needs to come out as well, not sure I want to remove the tank myself?? Has anyone replaced the bilge on one of these models? Did you pull the gas tank? Thanks for any help/advice.

    I've got an 05 PT175...let me know how it works out when you're done! Mine quit working and I just tapped on it a few times and it started working again, and another time the fuse was loose. I'm wanting to know how bad it will be when it does quit!!!

    I have a Tracker Pro 185, 2001.
    The bilge pump is difficult to reach, but after I removed the cranking battery I managed to lift the pump from its holder. There are two clips on opposite sides of the pump.
    The pump in my boat is made by Rule, I found the same pump via Amazon, bought the pump (with the mounting bracket, of course, $17 including shipping) connected the new pump to the electric wires and the water tube, clicked it into the old mounting. It would have been impossible to replace the bracket, changing the pump was difficult enough. It is not a comples operation, no more than replacing a light bulb, but the space is very cramped..

    Did the same on my PT 185 2005 year, but mine only had one lever to release and then turn pump just a bit and it comes out, replaced with same pump which popped in to old mount. Very hard to reach, I had to lay across hatch opening and reach behind gas tank..... I don't think you can remove tank unless you remove entire back deck....

    I replaced mine last year on my PT190 with no problem at all.... You want to remove just the pump and not the housing it twist locks in place and has two wires real easy...

    +1. If you have that style of pump its a cinch. Probly still best to take out the batteries just for more room but its all accessable without tearing the bilge apart. I fortunately havnt had to mess with mine yet but when I do I will upgrade the 500 to a 750 gph. Its the same housinf for both just a different cartridge pump.

    I feel the stock pump in my 2011 175TXW is weak.

    I got caught in a major down poor a few weeks ago, for about a hour i could not even see to move on the TM. The pump could not even come close to keeping up !

    30 minute ride back to the ramp and it was still pumping water when i got back to the ramp.

    Dang matt thats alot of rain water! Yea 500 gph isnt really adequate. The way i see it look how long it takes to fill a 16 gallon livewell. The bilge is huge and can fill up quick. For ease Im gonna change to a 750 when the day comes but I dont fish in the rain. Sounds like a 1000 gph would be good in yours. My cousin had that in his cat and it would push some water.
