Just got "Bayshots" back from a water pump service and looking at doing more of the maint; myself. Mainly due to the cost
Just spent $350.00 on a new pump service ) They replaced the impellor etc.. and also the thermostat.
I was a little concerned as I had the impellor replaced at the start of the season and it had already failed and the engine had overheated.
So my question is,is the water pump technicaly difficult to service.? I checked online and it seems like just dropping the lower end to access the pump housing.
$45.00 for a repair kit seems much more bearable than an annual $350.00
The full repair manual is about $60.00 for this model, so maybe that would be a good investment ,now I have about 500 hours on the engine
