Westerbeke parts - BTD 8.0

During winterizing I found the raw water pump shaft seal was leaking. A new pump thru the marina is right at $500.00, the shaft is worn and a new one isn't available according to the marina . Does anyone know of a source for a raw water pump besides Westerbeke? I've checked eBay and it's almost $400.00 for a rebuilt, I've done some Google searches but can only find empeller kits. I haven't called any dealers or Westerbeke yet, any suggestions for who to contact to source a shaft or a pump will be much appreciated.

That pump has been superceeded and finding parts to rebuild you old one may be more difficult than buying the new one.

The new replacement pump has a mechanical ceramic seal where the old one has lip seals.

Thank you gentlemen for the replies, Larry Depco has the parts a new shaft is $50.00, flat rate to rebuild is $47.00 + the cost of bearings and seals and I'am back going again next spring, more money to spend on diesel. I'am getting it in the mail tomorrow, thanks again this is a great forum for sharing information.

S3L is the Mitsubishi model designation for my 1987 Westerbeke but I doubt that'll help you with your unit. Have you talked with a Mitsubishi industrial engine dealer? That is where I would start trying to identify it.

I think on mine that is correct 15 hp at 1800 rpm, on other models they get 12 hp at 1500 rpm.
