This year however a bit more was required as the end plate was worn and needed replacement (again not expensive) so it seemed sensible to refurbish the unit as necessary and give it a couple of coats of paint after removing corrosion - the body of the pump is bronze and quickly goes green the mounting plate is steel so subject to rust, I chose some silver "Hammerite" that I already had as Yanmar coloured paint is silly money.
Removing crud, inside and out took some time but was a straight forward job that should not needed to be done again for several years.
|The impeller was actually OK but was changed anyway.|
The end plate was badly scored so also changed. Bearings
and the water seal were fortunately fine and did not have to
|Almost ready to go, the liquid on the seal and lubricating|
the impeller is Glycerine, oil will damage the rubber impeller.
