I have water leaking from the pulley side of my impeller housing. Is there a seal that can be changed or am I going to have to replace the whole housing? If I push down on the housing while the engine is running the leak stops. Thanks for the help.

Time for a NEW waterpump. It is more of a pain to do the bearing and seal vs replacing the pump all together. After you pull the bearing and seal then have a new one pressed in
there are no promises that it will work or how long it will work

All new pumps come with a new impeller

And here is a link to the Indmar Raw Water Pump Rebuild DIY pdf, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showpost.php?p=168509&postcount=2, (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showpost.php?p=168509&postcount=2), if that something you would rather do than replace the whole pump.

I want to just 2nd that .... on my 93 PS190 I went the "seal only" route and it always leaked ... till one day I snapped and got the whole pump and solved the problem .... it was not the seal's problem ... I just did not press into place the correct way and I damaged the lip of the seal which in turn rendered it useless .... just my $0.02.

Good luck ... the pump is a simple fix and the price difference is not horrible.

That pump is the OLD type LOW VOLUME.
The new ones do not have the INSERT in the flanges

Best to get the newest and latest pump

HIGH VOLUME

I have the same problem. It has had a slow drip for about a year but last weekend it started spraying back onto the engine. I am replacing the whole pump this weekend. The rebuild dosen't make sense.

Just ordered a new pump from BAWS. Can't beat the customer service provided by Jim and his team. The boat has not seen the water for just about a year. I hope this was the last set-back.:cool: Thanks for all the responses.

I agree! I picked up a new one yesterday at South Florida MasterCraft and installed it today. It took about 45 minutes to replace. Congrats on the new location.
