I have just restored my 1977 amf/crestliner apollo 660 16' with a 1977 85 h.p EVINRUDE, As this is my first boat bigger then a row boat , I have had no idea about anything with boats wiring etc..., so I have learned alot by doing everything myself. Me and my family can't afford to take it in to get fixed, anyways enough rambling, so is was pretty proud of myself for getting the boat in great condition, one thing that never crossed my mind is the bilge pump, I have looked everywhere I have the clymer manual for the engine but no information about the bilge pump, Do I have one? Do I need one? Where would it be located ? If I do have one how do I test it ? , sorry ahead of time if there questions seem stupid , I'm pretty handy with my tools I never take me or the wifes vehicles in I do all the work myself so if it something with in reason I can do it , someone please help me , i would appreciate it, I just dont want to put it on without a resolution, THANKS

Ayuh,..... A bilge pump will be in the aft area of the bilge, where water collects,......

If you haven't seen it, there probably isn't one there,.....

Just add one,.....

Do I have to make something like this?

Naw,..... In yer boat, pull the cover under the motor, behind that battery, under the splashwell,......

There should be a depression where the hull plug goes through the transom,.....
That's where the water collects, 'n where you'd put a bilge pump,....
