What's leaking?

1990 TriStar 190

New to all this so excuse the ignorance... believe this is just the water pump? Do you think it just needs replaced? Or is it the connection?

It looks like the seals (and probably your bearings) in your raw water pump are shot. You can replace the pump or rebuild it, depending on your priorities.

As long as you are pumping water, the leak shouldn't be too big of a deal. It becomes a big deal if it starts sucking air in the bad seal and not pumping water.

Personally, I probably wouldn't let it spoil a weekend, but I would keep an eye on my temp gauge. If you are going to replace it, you might as well do it as soon as you can. If not, you can rebuild it for not much $$. The bearings are 6203-2RS and they are available anywhere that sells bearings. The seal is available by itself or in an impeller long service kit.

Here is a post with the instructions:

There is a rebuild kit on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rebuild-Repair-kit-for-Johnson-F6B-9-raw-water-impeller-pump-812b-bearings-seal-/262224544807?hash=item3d0dcd0427:g:lagAAOSwHaBWit-3&vxp=mtr I have no experience with those guys. I did buy my bearings on eBay when I rebuilt my pump.

How was the job of replacing the bearings? I did my friends Johnson pump on his 94 nautique with the gt40 engine, and i ended up having to take it to a shop to have them press them out for me. I couldn't get them out on my own. Other option is just replace the seals, which was my back up plan since his bearings weren't bad, but I accidentally damaged the bearing seal when I was getting the shaft seal out.

Thanks WakeWise, this forum has been great for me and I try to pay back when I can.

Bcd, the job wasn't too bad. I used a bearing puller/separator kit to get the old bearings off. I have one from Harbor Freight, but I think you can borrow them from parts stores. Putting the new bearings on is easy with a deep socket or length of pipe. I used a huge vise to put the housing back on, but a block of wood and a hammer should get you there.

Raw water pump, purchase new one and get another TT member to rebuild this one for a spare. I am doing the same this weekend... LOL!

I bought mine from SKIDIM but this one is cheaper:
