The bearings have gone on the raw water pump, and although its not leaking at all the impeller housing has a significant wobble, so before it goes really bad and packs up I am going to replace the entire pump assembly.
I have ordered a genuine complete unit including the pulley, impeller housing etc.
I haves checked Seloc online and it looks fairly straightforward.
I will take off the in and out pipes off the pump and plug them. (Boat has to be in the water unfortunately no lifts in my marina).
Take off the serpentine belt.
Then I will undo the 3 bolts and take off the impeller housing so I can get to the Allen bolts.
Now this is where I need some advice please.
After I remove the Allen bolts, will the pulley just slide out or will I need a gear puller?
Also is there anything else I need to be aware of?
Thanks in advance.
