View Full Version : 08 X2 - ballast will not fill

New to me - 08 X2 - stock / starboard ballast not filling.
Have replaced impellar (old one looked like new).
Can hear pump running when swith is turned to fill or empty.

Port and KGB are filling fine.

What do I need to check now?

Thank you,

Can you see check valve from engine or trans compartments ...or do I need to pull up floor panels under seat or ???

I can see / get to valves for the port and kgb ballast.

You have three pumps one for each side and one for KGB. KGB is under rear seats in middle right next to tranny. Port and starboard are behind rear panels in storage compartments have to remove 3 screws from panel to access them. They share a inlet line its under engine on passenger side of boat. KGB has its own inlet near tranny in center of boat. Line maybe linked to pump.
