Change the mounts. The rubber really won't last all that long. Vetus mounts are nice. It's not that bad and it might save you a lot of expense.

The mounts go bad, the R&D coupling breaks, the shaft is out of alingnment the stuffing gets eaten up, the bilge pump gets oer worked and dies on a crusie. One thing leads to another. I call it "my summer of 2005". You really don't need that. If you notice more dripping then you know you waited too long.

I did not have to take the galley apart but I guess we are setup a tad bit different. I don't have a fuel tank behind my engine. You can do one mount at a time, but you need to be sure the shaft alignment is dead on.
