I have a 2007 150 Speedster, 215 hp. This must be the summer for bilge blower problems. As detailed as the service manual is, I was surprised there was nothing about the bilge blower in it.
When I turn on the bilge blower, I don't hear it. Back home, I took out the engine cover, and disconnected the blower connector, and held volt-ohm meter leads to it. When the switch was on, I read 12 or 13 volts. I then reconnected it, and neither heard nor felt anything from the blower. I tested ohms on the two leads to the blower at Rx1, it showed continuity -- I could find nothing about what the resistance should be, so I didn't test for a specific electrical resistance.
1) Should I assume the blower is bad?
2) Thank you, Bryan S, for your notes on buying and replacing the blower.
3) Question: I don't have a pop rivet tool. Can I use screws? If Bryan found 1/2 inch rivets worked, could I use a 3/8" screw?
4) Any other advice?

Come to find out, ther blower was not the problem -- it's the switch. Of course I found that out after I got the blower out and tested it with another 12 VDC power source. So I put the blower back in, and now need to find a new switch.
