No jinx intended, but I've had very little luck rebuilding raw water pumps.

Re: A general question on expectations from Yanmar parts dealers.

Yanmar and Yamaha are THE most protected dealerships out there. If you're in the Caribbean and want parts, you have to go stand in front of someone, or have family do it Stateside, and ship it down. I bought several Yanmar engines for sailboats several years ago (Pearson 10M, Bristol 35, etc.) and did my own install. HOWEVER, with dealer protection, I was expected to pay close to 45% more for the engines by going to the local dealer. No taxes, just markup because you're trapped. When Mastry or Mack Boring somehow shipped one down (can't remember which) from a Stateside dealer, it wound up in the local dealer's warehouse. They wanted their 45% additional profit. And it was completely paid for, including shipping. They wouldn't let me have it "because the owner was off-island and unavailable for the next week or so." I offered to drive my 3/4 ton GMC through the warehouse doors and get it, the manager relented and had the boys load it with a "ha ha you don't have a warranty, then." Well, sonofagun if I didn't get a full warranty from the Stateside dealer after I did the installation and sent him requested photos. Yanmar has a good product. So does Yamaha. But there is some serious gouging going on out there. Hmmm. What was it? Years ago. Filters? Something. Can't remember. Over $100.00 from the "local" dealer and $11.00 off the shelf at the dealer in Florida.

You didn't say exactly where you are, but Zimmerman Marine has locations in both Deltaville and Mathews, VA. I've found them very helpful with my Yanmar needs FWIW. Good luck.

Must of got lucky. Parts arrived and in 30mins job was done. Inner seal was worn down. Easy fix that I again attribute this to my boat being freshwater only for 37 years. The two months I've had her in the salt had shown more rust and wear than the entire rest of its life!

Lucky it did leak actually as when I took it apart I found my practically brand new impeller was already trashed. Only a few months old!

Hey,

Is that blue impeller a globe model? I tried one once and it lasted 6 months. No more Globe for me, I went back to Oberdorfer (for the Oberdorfer pump).

No idea. It was new in a plastic box as part of the spares when I bought her. All the others ones I've since stocked are yanmar originals. No more blue for me that's for sure!

To clarify, Iíve been able to effectively rebuild water pumps. However, they never lasted. Sounded like youíre trying to get 10 months out of it. Hope your experience is more positive than mine.

Wow! That should not have happened in a few months! I wonder if it was really old stock that had been sitting on the shelf for years and went hard. That or it was just a really cheap knockoff made out of substandard materials.

I have never seen a blue impeller. Mine have always been black.
