Sierra sells an aftermarket pump for this engine which has no zinc by the way, nor is it needed

I'm pretty sure Yanmar eliminated the use of zincs on the xJH line by reducing the use of disimilar metals in the design, etc.. My 3JH2eE also does not use them.

I also have a 4jh2E and discovered that it has no zincs.
