I've just got a used parsun 9.8 and for peace of mind I've completely stripped and cleaned the whole fuel system.
When re installing the pump I noticed a crack on the casing and it extends over a rib.
Obviously where the casing meets the mid section it is secured with a number of bolts.
Just wondering if I should just leave it, put some sort of sealant to stop water ingress, put a metal strap around the outside to strengthen it or both? I know the strap Idea would be a bit unsightly.
It's obviously been dropped or suffered a bump from the previous owner.
