Looks like I will need to rebuild
or replace it. Luckily when I got it apart my buddy had a mechanic
on the dock
. Took him two seconds to look at the bearings and tell me it needed to be rebuilt.
Replacing a part like an entire pump is very easy for me even if I don't have a guide. However opening things up like this is a bit over my head
( still like doing it because I start to learn about everything ). I'm going to talk to a mechanic
I know to see if all of this can be rebuilt easily with some help. Also contacted someone to rebuild
it for me so getting pricing for that.
Now that I've had all these issues I was looking at this major kit on this website Yanmar 2GM20F Parts
and I'm thinking I may go through and replace everything they have on there this winter. It may just be bad luck but I also feel like the previous owner took really good care of the boat
but not the engine
(for example my spare impeller wasn't even the correct one for my engine so I'm fairly certain he never replaced it or even looked at it).
Side note. Also looking at how I can get the engine to start better in the cold since it doesn't have glowplug and apparently has issues around here in the winter (baltimore).
