Joel, I figured out a way to cruise around the world and get paid for it. I have to tell you that professional crew work their butts off.....the owners get to have the fun while you are working. It wasnt all bad or I wouldnt have done it for 8 years. I have some great stories for when I am on the porch in my rocking chair!

Yanmar 4JH4AE raw water pump wear plate

I recently changed the wear plate on the raw water pump on the Yanmar. I have about 1675 hours on the engine and the plate showed significant scaring and wear. It was an easy change-out. After removing the impeller the plate simply sits behind it and is easily removed with a dental pick/ bearing pick/ or toothpick. I also added the Speedseal Life cover.
