Jabsco raw water pump

One of these fits on the Perkins 4108 diesel, its a strong bit of kit and should never fail. Keep a spare impellor just in case though.

There should be a rubber plug or bung in that hole where the shaft is.

If you have taken this off your Perkins 4108 engine read the manual very carefully about refitting it, do it wrong and you will wreck the drive.
How easy is that, simple it seems?
Note, the steel plate and four studs would normally not be removed as they fit inside the engines timing cover plate. The actual Jabsco pump should be safe to remove, its the timing cover and mount plate that needs a special tool to get it lined up, all in the Perkins 4108 work shop manual but not in the user manual I have read?
