    Hi

    I just ordered a new fresh water block circulating pump for my Perkins 4108. I didn't ask how much, but when I got the bill $487 charged to my card, I almost dropped! Can this price be real? :?:

    Might be cheaper, but where?

    Is there only one supplier (Foley) of marine Perkins 4107/4108 water pumps in the US? :confused:

    A lot of places in the world simply replace stuff because---well--thats what they think they have to.

    In the car accesory shops here they stock water pump bearings and mechanical seals and the shafts--or they will make one for you.

    Take it to a good guy with a press.
