degreeoff is on a distinguished road
I rebuilt mine as well fairly easy job do the whole gig, shaft bushing oil, water seals and shaft. she'll last a good long while. Of course new impeller and gasket........getting the bushing out would be easiest with a press but I used a socket and a BFH.....getting the new one in was a matter of a smaller hammer and a block of hardwood.
