raw water rebuild shop ?

Hey all, does anyone know of a shop who does pump rebuilds ? My local will but I found that shopping around sometimes makes worth the time. Since I have a new pump I'm good but want to repair the old for spare.... it was leaking. the pump is for a Yanmar 3GM30F and is a Johnson.

Pump repair

Suggest U take it apart yourself, see whats needed, find parts if available and reassemble. You have nothing to lose.

I never did it before last week. Its easy !! Not much to it. Of coarse this was for a Volvo Penta but I bought a rebuild kit for cheap from marinepartsexpress.com. I took out the impeller and the shaft and some other little part inside. Then I put the new parts and some silicone that came with it, replace the gaskets and they gave me a nice shiny new cover with the kit. DO IT !!!

well that wors out best, if it works out I heard that there are special shop tools needed to get it water tight again but that seems silly if its a kit for regular folks... I might try that, is there a way to test a leak without installing it on the boat ?
