Re: Yanmar 3YM20 New Raw Water Pump Install Questions

1. Raw water = Sea water
2. Don't tighten the belt too tight like mentioned in manual. A little slack prevents damage to pump shaft.
3. You should be able to turn the pump/pulley without belt, its tight but doable.
4. You could grease the impeller with glycerine or Superlube.
5. Don't throw away your old pump. Recondition it and keep as spare.
