Water Pump cycles often

I have a '67 Safari with a PAR 6800 pump. I don't seem to have any leaks but the pump comes on for about five seconds every 90 secs. Pump seals maybe? Where to find them? Trash in the pump? Am I missing something? Thanks.

If there are no external leaks a seal or small hole in the diaphragm sounds likely.
Here are a couple of links to threads that deal with repair or replace.

Parts are still available. I purchased a few parts recently from a Jabsco service center (in Maine, I think). I recently replaced the bottom plate and pulsation dampeners. I can get you the contact info later if you need it. Check out this link for replacement parts:

Thanks Guys! I'm going to isolate the pump by plugging the supply line to be sure it is a pump and not a system problem. I thought I had "reasoned" the solution out last night i.e.; a leaking city water to tank by pass valve. Of course things are never that simple. I'll let you know what I find.

Chapter Two.... I used the link above and found the part # for a service kit. Using the part # I found The rebuild kit for my PAR 6800 is about $50. It's on the way. This pump is way too nice to replace. Thanks for the help, Bill....
