5-37. FRESH WATER PUMP - MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS (Continued).
a. Clean all of the parts except the shaft and bearing assembly. The sealed-type
pump shaft bearing must not be immersed in a cleaning fluid since dirt may be
washed in and the fluid cannot be entirey removed.
b. Revolve the pump shaft bearing slowly by hand. If rough spots are detected,
replace the shaft and bearing assembly and the seal assembly. A seal replacement
kit includes a shaft and bearing assem- bly, cover and mounting gaskets, packing
and seal assembly.
Examine the impeller for wear, and replace it if necessary.
If a new steel insert is to be used in
the pump body, make sure the counter-
bore in the pump body is thoroughly
clean before installing a new insert.
Dirt in the counterbore can cause mis-
alignment between the insert and the
carbon washer and result in a leak
at this point. Start the counterbored
end of the insert into the pump body.
Then, press the insert in until it
contacts the shoulder in the pump body.
The insert has a .0015 inch - .0035
inch press fit in the pump body.
Do not mar the highly finished seal contact surface of the insert
when pressing it into the pump body.
