We have a 1GM on our Aphrodite 101. The water
pump impeller is a bear to change. You will need a little right angle screw driver and needle nose pliers.
The fuel filters are easy, have a pint of clean diesel
handy before you start to top up the bowl, reduce the chance of air in the line.
Always run the engine
before you start, get it all wormed up. this way, you know it will start/should start after you finish.
Check the oil
transfer pipe in front of the engine
, below the water
pump. It rots through and is hard to replace. We had one made by Lucy the Hydraulics Lady near home. I think you should order one and replace it pronto.
Keep in touch,
