After a very long cold and wet spring with the highest freshet in 100 years, we are in the water and working to make sure all the systems are working.   I have installed a deck wash down system, completed the Bimini install and tweaked a bunch of electrical items.     I discovered that the raw water pump was leaking and have ordered bearings and seals.    It took several hours over two days to find the right part number and then source the original manufacturer part number, which was less than half the price of Volvo Penta.  The engine is an MD 22-L, which comes with two different sea water pumps.    One is belt driven, mine is direct drive from the cam shaft.

Raw water pump Jabsco p/n 29500-1001  Volvo p/n 859824

I found a place to buy the kit.

Let’s hope the right parts arrive!
