Westerbeke 60 fresh water pump repair

Ed, I have a W60 that''s 21 yrs old and I found the FW pump needed to be either rebuilt or replaced after buying the boat (a Pearson 424). The W price was - typically - outrageous, but the mechanic I was working with on all the engine projects just rebuilt it using off-the-shelf parts. He went to the local W/Yanmar/Perkins dealer, prowled around his parts bins, and found the seals, bearings, etc. he/we needed. His labor & the parts ran about $200, a large savings. The pump has worked well during the past 1.5 year cruise (about 500 hours on it, now).

Jack
