|Here is my spare.|
I plan on keeping the old pump as a spare since it works but leaks a bit. Maybe eBay will come up with a rebuild kit or something. Never know.
|The boots are on the ends of the box that say Perkins Prima. These go over the HeatX and the fresh water coolant manifold. They were completely shot and leaking sea water over the engine motor.|
So Monday the pump should be here and then Thursday the sleeve for the heatX. Maybe just maybe we can get this boat out on the water in time for the Chili-cook off at the SYC Port Madison in the middle of February!
The engine block is not a ground. The only time it grounds itself is when the starter is engaged. This makes chasing electrical gerlims a bit of a chore.
