I don’t think
you should turn the screwdriver with power to the pump. All you are trying to
do with the screwdriver is turn the pump a couple of rotations to free the bronze

Ah the old screwdriver trick. That’s usually my first port of call too!
Do you try to turn it when it’s powered up? Is there a kickback when it
spins up? I’ve always powered it down first, then give it a few spins
with screwdriver and then it seems to go.
The AC pump on my last boat was exactly the same each spring.
