    I tried to open the new thread in Maintenance and Mechanical (raw water pump) and got nothing but a blank page. Tried it a couple of different ways, on a couple of different devices (PC, phone, etc).... no joy. Anyone else seeing this?

    M25 Raw Water Pump Replacement

    My old Sherwood water pump started leaking this summer. A seal failed, and water and oil dribbled increasingly from the base, in which the shaft turns. At first I rigged a funnel and a tube to route the water into a jug instead of the engine drip pan, which was getting filled up. Then I closed...

    Atomic 4 water pump

    OK, now I have myself worried. I came here to see if I could find out information on finding an O-ring replacement for the water pump cover plate and have been seeing threads about the impeller shaft removal. As it turns out the shaft came out on me when I replaced the impeller. I had no idea...

    Add a fuel pump?

    One of my winter tasks was to get the (diesel) fuel tank on my boat cleaned out and the fuel polished. I have owned the boat for 8 years, use very little fuel each season, keep the tank full, and always used a biocide. I don't know what the PO did. One of the things the yard recommended was...

    Another Facet pump question.

    OK, I have determined that my pump is not working after checking the filter. (I had to disconnect the ground wire from the mounting bolt in order to move the filter away from the bulkhead a little to get the cap off, but that's all I did.) I checked it with just the ignition switch on and...

    Electrical pump wiring conundrum...

    Hi, So I'm feeling a bit stupid...bought a Facet-Purolator solid state electronic fuel pump (the cylindrical type), and it only comes with one wire sticking out the centre front. The instructions say to "connect positive power lead to the ignition switch voltage supply terminal". But there...

    Raw Water Pump Shaft Leak

    I have an '86 E-28 with the M12 Universal. I replaced the impeller on the Oberdorfer raw water pump at the beginning of the summer, and had no problems. However, today I noticed a water leak coming from the seal where the pump mounts to the engine. I tried to tighten the 4 cap screws, but...

    Cleaning filter/screen on Facet fuel pump

    Hi, A recent post here mentioned that the bolt on the bottom of the older cylindrical Facet fuel lift pump (model 574A) can be removed to get at a screen/filter that should be cleaned periodically. I have done a search, but can't find any details on how this is done. Is this as simple as...

    Water pump gasket sealer?

    The water pump on my M-18 engine has a metal backing plate behind the impeller and a paper gasket between the backing plate and the pump body. Does that gasket need some sort of sealant applied to it? If so, what type? (Same question regarding the thermostat gasket.) The reason I ask is I...

    I would like to replace the original electric fuel lift pump on our 1984 E30+ with the 5416 model 16 hp universal diesel engine. The existing one still works, but I understand they can fail without warning, so I think I'll replace it and keep this one as a spare (if that's not a good idea...

    Freshwater pump issue in E38

    Just replaced the freshwater pump in my E38. The pump cycles from time to time, even when water isn't being run. In addition, each time it "burps" a bit of water out of the faucet for the freshwater foot pump. I have an accumulator tank installed. I've given the system a cursory check for air...

    I have an '87 Ericson 30+. We bought it used, and it had a Shurflo water pump for the pressurized water system (galley and head). This pump appears to have died. I went to Shurflo's site to see if I could find the model number and came up empty. The model number is 220-223-34. It has a...
