What do ballast pumps have to do with woodworking?  Well, absolutely nothing, but repairing and selling parts for Jabsco Ballast Pumps is just something that I got into while working on my own boat.  Below are the available parts for any Jabsco model ballast pump that starts with 18220.

Shipping:  All orders will be shipped by USPS.  I will be using the medium Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes for the complete pump assemblies.  These boxes will hold two complete pumps.  For all the other items, I can ship them in a small padded envelope for between $2 and $3.  I can fit up to 3 impellers in one of the flat envelopes.  Your actual cost will be true shipping costs only with no extra handling charges.  I hate getting blistered on shipping costs, so I want to keep this as low as possible.  I do have to charge sales tax for orders shipped within Virginia. 

How to Order:  Please send me an email to with the list and quantity of items that you would like to buy along with your complete mailing address and phone number.  I will then send you an invoice via email using Paypal's system.  This will give you a link to pay through Paypal's website and keep everything secure.  I am doing it this way because #1) I have very limited website skills, #2) this makes it easier to charge the lowest possible shipping fees.  Once I receive your payment, I will do my absolute best to ship your items the next day, if I have them in stock.  I am just keeping a small amount of stock on hand at the moment, so it could take about a week for some items.  Once I see how things go, I will start keeping more and more stock on hand.  When you place your order, I will let you know if anything is out of stock and how long it may take before I can ship.

If you have any questions or want to check delivery times, please don't hesitate to call or email me.


If there is a Jabsco part that you need that isn't shown below, give me a shout and I will check if it is available. 


Ballast Pump, complete - This is a complete ballast pump, Jabsco part #18220-1127.  Comes complete with green impeller and rocker switch (not shown).  Same setup that came factory installed on most Mastercrafts and many other brands.  For an extra $6.00, I can also install the OEM style gray plug used on Mastercrafts.  This will make the pump plug and play with the factory harness. 

Sorry, but I am no longer carrying this item for sale

Lip seal - One per motor, presses into bronze pump body. If your pump body is leaking onto the top of your motor, this is the seal to replace. 
$8.00 each
Impeller, green - One per motor, latest polyurethane impeller.  These impellers will also fit the Johnson Ultra Ballast pumps.  These are a big upgrade from the old black impellers.
