pump is belt-driven from the inboard engine of the
starboard propulsion unit. See figure 4-83. See figure 3-12
for bilge pump installation on hull numbers 8540 thru
8560 and 8580 thru 8618. These pumps have a single
moving part, the impeller and shaft assembly. Only one
grease cup requires attention. See lubrication order.
The grease cup provides lubrication for the bronze
bushing on impeller end of shaft. Ball bearing at other
end of shaft is grease-pack and requires no attention.

than necessary to stop leakage of water. Repack when
necessary with 1/8-inch metallic string packing.
