I got a quote to get a new raw water pump for $400 and change and find that steep. Anyone have an opinion if this is something that shold be rebuilt, left along or just flat out replaced. I like the last and keep the old as spare as that seems the safest and I'm close to doing it but I tohght a check here would be woth it...

any comments appreciated !

Don't quote me on this - but I think all you need to do is replace the impeller on it and secure it with a new gasket...It5s probably a simple rebuild and the basic kit runs about 75 - 150 bucks, way cheaper than a new one...
