Westerbeke four-60 Water Pump

My water pump just went on my 4-60. After taking it apart found the shaft snapped in half. Called local Westerbeke dealer in Nanaimo and was informed parts were no longer available. Any ideas.

Probably the same Sherwood pump we have.The shaft is badly worn and there is no replacement I would need to buy a new pump.

On Ebay this one is $400:
Westerbeke Sea Water Pump Kit 37431 New in Box | eBay

There are used pumps from $70 up.

Another choice could be to have a machine shop make a new shaft.

Re: Westerbeke four-60 Water Pump

The westerbeke 60 is a larger engine. My four -60 is a 15 hp with a block from a 70's Austin. A local marine diesel mechanic here in Sidney BC is now trying to find one through BMC in the UK.
