My yanmar needs a new one 3gm30f.
Any recomendations as to replace or rebuild.
Or a better price of $400 ?
The leak is a small drip when off nothing when running.
Seems to be at shaft end , there is a small slit where water is dripping.
Thank-you for any help .

If it like most pumps that drip is a sign that the pump needs the seals replaced. just get a rebuild kit. if like my Perkins pump it takes about an hour if it is readily accessible. kit was about $40.00 on mine
sometimes your yanmarparts place will rebuild the pump seal for around 100 bucks. you can rebuild the seal yourself with a little effort for around 10 bucks. either way you need to remove the pump. beats paying 400 or more.
sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most.
