I did a search on this type of topic and this was the closest I found, so I hope I am posting
in the right spot. I have a Catalina
27 with a Universal M18 that has a Sherwood pump on it. Today I discovered the pump leaking around the bottom nut that holds the pump to the block. Could be a faulty gasket
, so I plan to remove it and check it out, but wanted to make sure it is as simple as that. I've worked on many cars over the years, but have no experience with a marine diesel
. There are 4 nuts holding my pump to the block. Is it safe to unbolt, inspect, replace gasket, and just bolt back together?
