My 1965 5.5 Johnson ran well into the mid 1980s and it had thousands of hours so if you reseal the gear case and did the pump it should do fine

Your real issue will be If the motor will come apart without breaking when there in the shop it tends to take a lot of heat and care to get one apart

So IMHP anything like a water pump should be taken apart NOW and put back toghter with something like tef-gel on the bolts so IF you have and issue it comes apart with ease as saltwater will make this very hard pretty fast


I am not seeing a fuel pump on the list and its a common item to fail

1970 Cal 29 Sea Fever

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
